If films could be divided on a sexual sign, «A habit to leave» would become one of list headliners of «girlish cinema». "Girlish". Not female, calculated on all fine half, and such narrow also it is very directed beating in a certain age and social category – for girls students of initial courses of liberal arts colleges. And it is quite good – at least because, knowing, to what audience it is necessary to address, authors use the most exact images, language and a subject.
Founders of the film the first in Russia used reception unusual to domestic cinema – created an advertizing trailer of a picture even prior to the beginning of work on a set, involving with that interest of investors and producers in the project before its realization
These accuracy and calculation beat backhand – almost from the first shots the viewer would like to become this girl student who is carefree kicking gold leaves on lawns or going for a drive on miraculously bent bicycles on parks. It would be desirable to plunge into this youthful attention, in this admiration of world around, in this understanding of that the future is not predetermined yet, in this possibility most to choose the way, the satellite, the style, the image. The main character, replacing one young man with another as if moves from one Universe to another. It is improbably beautifully made – the narration rhythm changes, individual scenery and lighting give to these segments still big authenticity. The viewer as if thumbs through photos of the stranger «инстаграма» or plunges into a subsoil of someone’s LiveJournal – with its special registration, a specific look, a nerve, style. Plus it is diluted with healthy modern humour, self-irony, pertinent graphic inserts. To look at it it is improbably interesting, and here to think over it …
Alyona Konstantinova in the film appears in seven different images – from the burning brunette to the ashy blonde. Change of image accompanies each of seven partings of her heroine
To think in the film especially there is nothing. The picture is so thoughtless, her main character however is young. Its throwings are unclear not that that to the audience, about depths of their origin screen girlfriends, not that that Eve guess even. And represent, what opinion on it the men thrown by it? And them, to put it mildly, bewilderment is clear – this run around will dement everybody or at least will discompose. And all this attraction with double running is shown only in order that in the ending to award the viewer simple thought: there is no escaping fate. Both in good, and in bad sense. A strange result for a narration about the girl who is constantly in search.
