After the birth of son Tito Julia and Felix’s marriage cracked. It is absorbed by work and tries to spend time far away from the house, she was tired of routine and seeks new feelings elsewhere. In attempt to rescue the relation the family goes to the resort small town and settles in a small coastal lodge. In the first evening Julia goes on the car to a drugstore and gets to troubles: its car глохнет, it plunder, in addition to everything the woman lost the way in a thunder-storm. With approach of morning Julia goes on bungalow searches, Felix goes to look for the wife, but in practice spouses should understand themselves and the life.
The picture became Eduardo Noriega’s debut as the coauthor of the scenario
All reviews of the film «A love presentiment» diligently bypass and try to veil the main intrigue of a picture, but we did not get used to spare the readers and intend now frankly наспойлерить as and at founders of the film to hold a secret on the lock of patience suffices only for fifteen minutes of the film. Yes, even according to streamline formulations of a synopsis much at once it becomes clear – Julia during the night trip has an accident and fells into a coma. The woman take to hospital, report about misfortune to Felix, and now the spouses until recently testing from each other only fatigue, it is necessary to move together towards each other from the different parties of border of life and death.
The film very indifferently acted in local hire, having collected only 140 thousand dollars in Spain. Any country, except for Russia, did not get a tape for hire in the territory
Well, the demand at least interesting – action of a picture develops at once in three planes: in reality of the present Felix looks after the insensible spouse and opens her some impartial secrets, flashbacks carry the viewer at the time of acquaintance of heroes, candy букетного the period of the relations and during a time of ardent love, at last, Julia stays in gloomy, confused and inconsistent dreamland, a such Purgatory where she should endure again own mistakes and offenses. On mood it is close to Lynch’s works and the Bunk room, in something peripetias of a plot are close to Alexander Paine’s "Descendants", but, alas, "Presentiment" considerably loses to the more experienced colleagues.
Actually the picture suffers from one, but very serious problem – to "A love presentiment» categorically does not suffice some air. From first minutes of the film of the viewer as if covers with a huge down feather-bed through which light does not make the way, and sounds reach the too distorted. Stuffy, languid, often colourless narration presses and strains, as if you are in a purgatory, and to you already apply torture by time when every minute is stretched for hours. And, it seems, in the film the turning points, solving episodes, drama changes suffice, but they are shown so unartfully that this lack of an emotionality turns viewing into torture. The intrigue remains until the last minute (though about what we, it it is possible to guess the ending), but this only thing that keeps the viewer from a dream. Without an involvement hundred minutes to you not to hold on.
And, it seems, there are no big claims to actors, both Eduardo Noriega, and Martha Etura – sparrows shot begin to cry during the responsible moment can, laugh too. The second plan of characters, many of which appear and in Felix’s real world, and in Julia’s coma nonsense, too a mass does not spoil. To all fault, perhaps, straightforwardness of statement. The director of Santiago Tabernero, transferring on the screen Clara Sanchez’s novel, chose the line of least resistance, in "Presentiment" there are no both hints on a metafizichnost and Bunk room and Lynch philosophy. On the contrary, in Spain everything is simple – the destroyed life is projected on night club "Happiness", the main symbol of marriage there is a wedding ring, and rescue is possible only by abstention. Not too intricately, but it is clear even to the child.
