In night of the trinadtsatiletiya young Oskari should pass the ancient ceremony of initiation traditional for its small northern people, – for days the boy should go to the wood and return from there with production which will define its future. Armed with only simple onions and arrows, Oskari goes on the first real independent hunting, however absolutely unexpectedly not bears habitual for local places, deer or proteins become his purpose. Practically on the head to the boy the U.S. President is on a silver platter … – flying on the summit in Helsinki the board No. 1 becomes a target of terrorists. The young hunter and his unexpected friend become a game in sights of the bad guys, wishing to force America to the knees. But even to the most desperate terrorists not on forces to master the boy who by all means wishes to finish the ceremony and not to strike in dirt with the person before the father.
It was necessary to remove the Finnish woods and mountains in German Bavaria, too snow-covered and impassable for a film crew there were open spaces of Scandinavia
Scandinavians became recently generators of the most mad ideas for films which, having realized on the big screen, become a feast for admirers of the most zaboristy humour, an action and an invention. Remember «The iron sky», «Hunters for trolls», "Operation" dead snow """, Santa on sale» – at all these tapes there was the firm sumasshedshinka forcing the most experienced critics at viewing to jump up delighted on places, to clap and draw the most iridescent prospects for founders of these pictures. «Big game», despite joint British German-Finnish production and presence of several recognizable persons in a shot, is the direct successor of the above-stated creations. Sumasshedshinka found confidence and escaped from the Scandinavian Peninsula in the big world.
With the budget 8,5 million euros «Big game» became the most expensive project in the history of the Finnish cinema
The name of the director «Big game» to the interested viewer will tell at once about much. Yalmari Helander – the author of that «Santa on sale», at first short, and then and the sound film about the lappish small village which has caught the real Santa, not habitual on the American cards ruddy пузана, and the terrible troll terrorizing in Christmas night northern small villages. Helander’s new picture lost a mystical aura, but thus kept hurricane of an invention, special northern color and any rollicking relation to life.
The relation to life, receiving pleasure from each lived minute became the red thread passing through a plot of the film, they, apparently, fed founders of a picture. «Big game» as if carries away somewhere in the childhood, at that teenage cinema where everyone was in something a hero, in those old films where heroes managed to accept a courageous pose before final explosion, and the main villain in perplexity widely opened eyes sees off a deadly arrow flying to it. The film in general is full of stamps, but, as well as at his recent predecessor according to "Kingsman’s" film theatrical schedule, these stamps are not way to hide inability to think up – they are some kind of bricks of which there is a special film world. The world of teenage popkornovy cinema, with a minimum of thoughts and a drive maximum.
All tape is made so as if her founders meaningly tried to "go too far". Comical villains, devilishly ridiculous president with the story about obmochenny trousers, the parody image of the command crisis center, the severe little boy with pair abrupt фразочек both ridiculous onions and arrows – from all this involuntarily you blur in a smile. And let we already hundred times watched how the American president kidnap, shoot and rescue (Hollywood willingly shoots itself similar films and let’s do it to another, «they would try it in a mosque»), all alignment of forces let is in advance clear and the ending it is abundantly clear is all the same fervent and sincere. Severe Finns are able to dispose to themselves.
Onni who has played a leading role Tommila, can, and there are no stars from the sky, but certainly diligent small. His Oskari – such children’s hero in whom willingly it is possible to believe: not ботан with superabilities, not the stupid athlete and not the born hunter. The simple frightened boy who should overcome first of all itself. Jackson, apparently, so got stuck a kogotok in images charming сумасбродов that it would be desirable to vote for his President already now. The second plan at all does not concede – recognizable persons enough in order that viewing did not cause difficulties.
