The known director suddenly was lost. From it there were film kilometers with tests for his new picture. The actor for the actor, the actress for the actress play in the same scenery the same train of scenes – the man comes on a visit to the former classmate and asks it for suggestions how to choose between the wife and the mistress. Though the woman does not want to discuss people unfamiliar to it, the man insists – and takes offense at each council offered it.
In April, 2013 «Eternal return» was awarded the awards "Nick" in the nomination «the best film of CIS and Baltic countries»
«It is elite, – one of heroes of the film, the potential investor whom the producer of a cancelled picture wants to "untwist" on money for further work speaks. – It is pleasant to me, and the public likes not be pleasant». He, of course, lies. It is not pleasant to it. He simply does not want to be dishonored. When you try to seem thoughtfully arguing expert, it is impossible to admit misunderstanding of that is presented to you as «elite art». Especially it is impossible to tell that you not only do not understand elite art, but also do not love. On this simple psychological base the most part of "modern art" is constructed. It is not pleasant to people, but they are afraid to admit.
Acting in the film Natalia Buzko and George Deliyev – participants is no time popular on the Russian TV the comedian troupe of "Mask"
The new picture of the master of the Soviet and Russian art house of Kira Muratova – just such "modern art" which at the same time irritates and shuts a mouth. When nearly two hours you listen, as the train of actors deliberately is false, playing the same dialogues in characteristic for Muratova’s films аутично – absurd and clownish style, it would be desirable to run away from a hall that never it is more in life to hear this cat’s concert. But you know is such reception, it is a post-modernist deconstruction of human speech which in the theory sets thinking on different aspects of communication and life. In the theory. In practice to reflect on a session of «Eternal return» as it is difficult how to solve the equations under a gnash of claws on glass. But same art house! Cinema for those who, as the hero of an old joke so loves difficulties that mows in a gas mask. Mowed down? Recovered the breath? Think under a gnash. Fall in love with infinite repetitions of the same phrases. Reconcile to that in a picture there is no fascinating plot. Also look narrowly at that in scenery hangs on walls. Yes, on the black-and-white image it is difficult to make out small, but important symbolical details. But on that and «eternal return» that you by the end of the film learned by heart each millimeter of scenery. There such picture, there syaky … This from a scene to a scene does not change, this is changes … It everything something means! It is not simple so! Did not decipher? Did not notice? Did not understand? Well you are a sucker! Look once again! Two more hours of tortures! March! This cinema will teach you an art house to love!
Was tired? Well, have a rest on Oleg Tabakov’s scenes – the unique actor of the film to whom whether conscience, whether school of the Moscow Art Theatre does not allow to play badly. When he says the foolish remarks put on the scenario about wife Luda and mistress Lyusyu (or on the contrary? For the film it is not important), to it unexpectedly trust. Here that the classic means! Renata Litvinova, on the other hand, plays so badly (probably, intended) that on the screen not the actress in image (let and excentric), and the actress, not able to cope with a role – confusing the words, forgetting a stage setting and so on. And this humanity bribes. Unfortunately, about anybody it is more in a picture than anything similar it is impossible to tell. Gnash as gnash.
