(Keep in mind this is in chronological order, for any cases where the episode order may not go in numerical order (Going from episodes 878-894 to 897 and then later going back to 895-896) this is for a better chronological order. However it should be noted that the whole crew being together in Film Gold can’t really be placed anywhere else than it is already placed, due to us knowing it takes place after Dressrosa but before Zou even though the whole crew isn’t together at the time. So the placement will stay as of now.)

One Piece | Anime Movie Guide

One Piece

The first chapter of the One Piece manga hit store shelves on Aug. 24, 1997 in the weekly Shōnen Jump magazine. It took less than two years for One Piece to become a full-fledged anime series with the first episode airing on Oct. 20, 1999. Since then, One Piece has grown to be the most popular manga series of all time in Japan with over 280 million volumes sold as of 2012. One Piece follows the story of a pirate named Monkey D. Luffy and his rag-tag Straw Hat pirate crew as they set-out to help Luffy become The King of the Pirates by finding a legendary treasure called One Piece that the last Pirate King Gold Roger hid at the end of the Grand Line, a series of islands separated from the rest of the world by windless oceans that cannot be sailed. While sometimes bloody, One Piece is generally good for the whole family and has such a compelling story that you’ll likely want to start reading the manga once you’ve seen any of the anime series or movies.

One Piece (2000)
Wan Pīsu (ワンピース)

Director: Atsuji Shimizu
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 16

The first One Piece feature film is a good one, but its animation hasn’t aged very well over the last decade or so. The Straw Hat pirate crew for this movie consists only of Luffy, Zoro, Usopp, and Nami. The movie’s plot involves the Straw Hat pirates, starving for their lack of Sanji, being shanghaied by the El Drago pirates who are on their way to an island to search for the legendary treasure of the Great Gold Pirate Woonan and then getting tangled up in the search for the treasure. Fairly light as far as One Piece movies go, this is a good one to see if only to understand just how greatly One Piece has evolved over the years and enjoy a little side-story with the early Straw Hat crew.

Clockwork Island Adventure (2001)
Nejimaki-jima no Bōken (ねじまき島の冒険)

Director: Atsuji Shimizu
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 60

Sanji makes is first film appearance as a Straw Hat crew member in Clockwork Island Adventure. In just a year, One Piece’s quality of animation improved significantly, but this movie’s visuals are still dated by today’s standards, just not grossly so. The narrative follows the Straw Hat pirates as they are once again set upon by thieves and chase after their stolen pirate ship ending up at a “floating” island whose inhabitants are being oppressed by a pirate crew called the Trump Siblings. The steaks are high throughout the movie and it’s cool to see the Straw Hats in all-out battles against their various powerful and well-matched foes. This is a fine One Piece movie and definitely a recommended watch.

Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals (2002)
Chinjū-tō no Choppā-ōkoku (珍獣島のチョッパー王国)

Director: Atsuji Shimizu
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 102

Adding Chopper (and specifically not Nico Robin) to the Straw Hat crew, Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals is essentially both the least canonical and one of the least beloved of the One Piece movies (I still enjoy it because Chopper is my favourite character, but that’s neither here nor there). The story has the Straw Hat pirates arriving at the Island of Strange Animals only to have their ship thrown into the air and have Chopper fall overboard. Chopper is then crowned the king of the strange animals and both he and the rest of the Straw Hat crew help defend the island’s inhabitants from a treasure hunter named Count Butler and his henchmen. While less involved than pretty much all of the other One Piece movies, as the so-called “worst” of the bunch this movie is still better than some of the more common anime rabble these days. Not a bad time, but there are certainly better anime movies to watch.

Dead End Adventure (2003)
Dead End no Bōken (デッドエンドの冒険)

Director: Kōnosuke Uda
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 146

This is one of the better One Piece movies. With Nico Robin joining the Straw Hat pirates, solid animation, a good storyline, and cool movie-exclusive characters, Dead End Adventure has a lot going for it. Directed by the same person who directs the anime series, the canonical Dead End Adventure feels more like an extended and epic episode of the series than some of the other One Piece movies. The plot follows the Straw Hat pirates who are hard-up for cash as they discover and then participate in a high-stakes ship race, but the race and some of their competitors are not quite what they seem. A great jaunt with the Straw Hat crew, Dead End Adventure is certainly one of the finest One Piece movies.

The Cursed Holy Sword (2004)
Norowareta Seiken (呪われた聖剣)

Director: Kazuhisa Takenouchi
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 183

The Cursed Holy Sword uses one of the popular tropes of anime series movies, a main character going rogue for seemingly no reason. Zoro mysteriously disappears while the Straw Hat crew, who have not gained any additional members since the last movie, are restocking their ship on an island. Their search for Zoro leads them to a village on the island where Zoro, in the company of some Marines, fights Sanji and steals some powerful orbs from the village. It’s up to the Straw Hat crew to discover why Zoro has seemingly gone crazy, but it must have something to do with a Holy Sword that is possibly Cursed, right? Not the most involved One Piece movie, but with some rockin’ sword fights and some ancient curses it’s a good time none-the-less.

Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island (2005)
Omatsuri Danshaku to Himitsu no Shima (オマツリ男爵と秘密の島)

Director: Mamoru Hosoda
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 223

Directed by the incomparable Mamoru Hosoda (of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time fame), this is by far the darkest and creepiest single piece of One Piece media. This was my favourite One Piece movie until Strong World came out in 2009. The movie has the Straw Hat crew find a message in a bottle advertising a resort called Omatsuri Island where there are all manner of relaxing and fulfilling activities tailored especially for powerful Grand Line pirates. Figuring they could use a vacation they travel to the island not knowing that it harbours one of the greatest challenges they may ever face. The highly stylized and “simplified” animation in this movie is a huge departure from its counterpart in the anime series and it adds greatly to the depiction of the tribulations that the Straw Hat crew faces on the Secret Island. The dark story and graphic violence make this an anime movie that’s definitely not for kids, but provides a very unique and extremely enjoyable ride for the rest of us. This movie is not to be missed, even if you’re unfamiliar with One Piece.

The Giant Mechanical Soldier of Karakuri Castle (2006)
Karakuri-jō no Meka Kyohei (カラクリ城のメカ巨兵)

Director: Kōnosuke Uda
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 257 (set before Episode 229)

Kōnosuke Uda’s second turn at the helm of a One Piece movie is largely a forgettable outing. The movie has a couple of mildly interesting twists, but really stands at the back of the pack of One Piece movies along with Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals. The plot follows the Straw Hat Crew as they hear the legend of a priceless Golden Crown hidden on Mecha Island which is covered with myriad mechanical marvels. I don’t want to give away the plot twists, but the Crew solves riddles across the island along with some of the island’s residents to uncover a secret that most of them weren’t expecting. Not a completely terrible anime movie by most turns, this is just not one to hold one’s breath over in anticipation of watching. It’s also a good deal lighter in tone than its numerical predecessor, so no more worries for family viewing than with any other standard One Piece fare.

The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta (2007)
Episōdo obu Arabasuta: Sabaku no Ōjo to Kaizoku-tachi
(エピソードオブアラバスタ 砂漠の王女と海賊たち)
(lit. “Episode of Alabasta: The Desert Princess and the Pirates”)

Director: Takahiro Imamura
Episodes Summarized: 92-130

This movie serves solely as a summary of the events during the Alabasta Arc of the One Piece anime with improved animation. In the Alabasta Arc the Straw Hat Pirates land on the desert island of Alabasta to find the Kingdom of Sand embroiled in a civil war due to the meddling of Crocodile, a Shichibukai (a powerful pirate working for the World Government) and leader of the criminal organization Baroque Works. Luffy and crew then try to help their new friend Vivi, the kingdom’s princess, save the island from its turmoil. Fairly minor details were either omitted or tweaked to make the story flow better in its condensed form, but nothing major enough to cause concern was changed. Unlike many anime series summary movies, though, Adventures in Alabasta‘s limited exposition makes this movie only truly enjoyable by people who are already acquainted with the One Piece series. With events occurring thick and fast, much of the movie’s value is lost on people who know nothing or very little about the series’ characters. Inexplicably the most widely available One Piece movie in North American stores, Adventures in Alabasta is a pleasant trip down memory lane for One Piece fans, but is certainly the wrong place to start if you’re a newcomer to the series.

Episode of Chopper Plus: Bloom in Winter, Miracle Sakura (2008)
Episōdo Obu Choppā Purasu: Fuyu ni Saku, Kiseki no Sakura
(エピソードオブチョッパー+ 冬に咲く、奇跡の桜)

Director: Atsuji Shimizu
Episodes Embellished: 78-91
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 344

Playing on the episode summary concept from the previous year’s movie, Episode of Chopper Plus is rather an anachronistic non-canonical retelling of the Drum Island Arc from the anime series/manga wherein Tony Tony Chopper’s back story of having eaten the Human-Human devil fruit is told and he eventually joins the Straw Hat crew. The movie adds in Franky, Nico Robin and the Thousand Sunny ship, none of whom were yet part of the Straw Hat crew when the events originally took place in the series, as well as changing a number of details about the story and characters to fit its new chronological placement after the Enies Lobby Arc which ended with Episode 312. Different enough from the original arc for fans of the series (especially of Chopper) and compelling enough to stand on its own, Episode of Chopper Plus was an interesting experiment in retelling an arc from the series, but stands as one of the weaker overall One Piece movies due to its familiarity and slightly lower budget animation.

One Piece Film: Strong World (2009)
Wan Pīsu Firumu: Sutorongu Wārudo
(ワンピースフィルム ストロングワールド)

Director: Munehisa Sakai
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 429

While still non-canonical, Strong World was the first One Piece movie to be written and supervised by the series’ creator Eiichiro Oda — this was such a large departure from the preceding One Piece movies that there was huge buzz around its release. Strong World also marks several other firsts for One Piece movies including the first film appearance of Brook, the use of “One Piece Film” in the movie titles, and the tradition of having several very distinct and unique costume changes for each character throughout the movie. The plot follows the Straw Hat crew as Nami is kidnapped by a famous pirate named Golden Lion Shiki and the rest of the crew have to navigate his islands filled with huge dangerous creatures to gear up and try to get her back. A fun, unique, and often times hilarious One Piece movie, Strong World represents a sort of renaissance for the quality of One Piece’s theatrical films and is certainly one that is not to be missed.

One Piece 3D: Straw Hat Chase (2011)
Wan Pīsu Surī-Dī Mugiwara Cheisu (ONE PIECE 3D 麦わらチェイス)

Director: Hiroyuki Satoh
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 489

A fun, relatively light and short movie, One Piece 3D was double-billed with a 3D Toriko movie when it hit theatres in 2011 so it weighs in at a mere 30 minutes long. The cel-shaded 3D animation is more reminiscent of modern video games than it is of theatrical productions, but it manages to resemble the series’ traditional animation enough that it’s not overly distracting during the film’s short run time. The plot follows the Straw Hat crew as they try to get Luffy’s stolen hat back while battling their way through Marines and Sea Kings. There is not a whole lot to One Piece 3D, but it’s a fine if short foray into the third dimension for the Straw Hat crew.

One Piece Film: Z (2012)
Wan Pīsu Firumu: Zetto (ワンピースフィルム ゼット)

Director: Tatsuya Nagamine
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 576

The second One Piece film to be executive produced by Eiichiro Oda himself, One Piece Film: Z is a favourite among many One Piece fans due to its interesting and well developed new characters, heavy use of the Marine Admiralty, exceedingly high stakes, and good balance between humour and excellent battle scenes. The film’s story follows the Straw Hat crew as they happen upon an insanely strong purple-haired ex-Marine named Z who has formed his own Neo Marines and is bent on the destruction of all pirates. The crew get some of their best-ever cinematic battles, some fun costume changes, and many Marines get their first post time-jump anime appearances — One Piece Film: Z is a great time and a must-see for fans of One Piece and action anime alike.

One Piece Film Gold (2016)
Wan Pīsu Firumu Gōrudo (ワンピースフィルムゴールド)

Director: Hiroaki Miyamoto
Last Episode Before Release: Episode 750

The latest One Piece film, graciously still produced by Eiichiro Oda, is just as flashy and full of spectacle as the name One Piece Film Gold would suggest. Featuring some of the very best animation that One Piece has ever had (second only in my mind to Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island), One Piece Film Gold follows the Straw Hat crew as they visit an enormous casino/resort ship called the Gran Tesoro which is run as an independent country by megalomaniac and devil fruit user Gild Tesoro. The crew is welcomed on the ship to compete in numerous challenges of skill and chance to rack up enough bellies/berries to give Nami heart palpitations. At a full 120 minutes, this is the longest One Piece movie yet, and while you can feel its length as the pacing lulls in a couple of places, One Piece Film Gold is ultimately very much worth the ride and is a dazzling spectacle of an anime movie whether you’re a One Piece novice or (gold) card carrying expert.

All Of The One Piece Movies, Ranked According To IMDb

Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga debuted in 1997 and has remained a fixture of the shounen scene ever since. Two years later, the anime started to air, cementing the franchise as an inescapable juggernaut in Japan. Since then, Toei Animation has consistently released movies that condense a typical One Piece arc into a digestible short sit.

RELATED: 10 Anime Series With Breathtaking Visuals

While some of these films have tie-ins to the manga or anime, they generally stand on their own and are considered non-canon. As One Piece‘s roster of characters ballooned to an enormous size, these movies began to serve as a rare opportunity to see the Straw Hats together in a more streamlined adventure. With fourteen movies spread over two decades, these films naturally vary widely in terms of quality, but how do they rank according to IMDb’s ratings?

Updated June 17th, 2021 by Mark Sammut: Alongside its many theatrical movies, One Piece has produced plenty of TV specials that are the length of a standard feature film. A few of these releases are very highly rated by the community, even more so than the franchise’s cinematic projects. While the majority of these releases just retell arcs from the main series, they provide new animation and, sometimes, even a change in perspective. A few specials take a different approach and present entirely new stories or serve as tie-ins for the theatrical movies. To make this countdown as complete as possible, these TV specials have been added.

23 Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals (6.5)

It says a lot for the quality of One Piece‘s movies that even the lowest-rated of the bunch, Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals, has a respectable rating. After arriving on a peculiar island filled with talkative animals, Chopper ends up separated from the Straw Hats. The doctor also becomes the island’s king.

Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals earns points for pushing the Straw Hats’ resident reindeer to the forefront, a rare practice. The story takes a bit too long to build up any significant momentum, although things pick up somewhat in the final act.

22 One Piece: The Movie (6.7)

One Piece‘s first movie does not distinguish itself enough from the series. While its animation is somewhat better in places and the story moves at a quicker pace than the show, the 2000 film very much feels like a filler storyline with no weight to it.

As it came out so early in the franchise’s run, there is something charming and quaint about One Piece: The Movie‘s simplicity.

21 One Piece 3D: Straw Hat Chase (6.7)

Describing One Piece 3D: Straw Hat Chase as a feature is being generous, as the project clocks in at only 30 minutes. As implied by its title, this film’s selling point is its animation, as Straw Hat Chase gives a CGI makeover to One Piece‘s iconic characters and world. The story, which revolves around Luffy’s misplaced straw hat, is merely a means to showcase the visuals through a couple of memorable fight scenes.

RELATED: The 10 Best Anime Based On JRPGs

Despite looking like a cutscene from a game, Straw Hat Chase is a surprisingly entertaining watch. It also doesn’t overstay its welcome.

20 Giant Mecha Soldier of Karakuri Castle (6.7)

Most of the recent One Piece films prioritize action above anything else, often overlooking the main series’ penchant for adventure and mystery. Giant Mecha Soldier of Karakuri Castle gives the Straw Hats an opportunity to use their brains along with their fists, as the heroes end up on a treasure hunt sparked by a woman found in a chest.

Characters like Robin and Chopper benefit greatly from the movie’s more laid-back and adventurous tone, while the crew’s heavy hitters still get a few opportunities to showcase their fighting skills.

19 The Cursed Holy Sword (6.8)

A person from Zoro’s past causes a rift to form between the swordsman and his fellow crew members. The Cursed Holy Sword ramps up the violence and dread as it tells a story that challenges Zoro’s allegiances. It also features a genuine fight between Zoro and Sanji, as their duels are usually comedic in nature.

Considering the Straw Hats’ first mate’s loyalty is never questioned in the main series, Zoro acts somewhat out of character in The Cursed Holy Sword. Permitting someone can look past that, this is a serviceable action anime.

18 Clockwork Island Adventure (6.9)

One Piece‘s movies got off to a relatively slow start. As none of the first three films reach the hour mark, they come across more like specials than full features. Out of the franchise’s earliest movies, Clockwork Island Adventure stands out as the pick of the bunch, primarily due to an interesting premise revolving around the theft of the Straw Hats’ ship.

Due to its short length, Clockwork Island Adventure moves at an absolutely blistering pace as it throws conspiracies, a kidnapping, and a wedding into the mix.

17 Adventure Of Nebulandia (7)

Foxy tends to be a rather polarizing figure; his arcs typically do not add much to the overall story and, in the anime, have a habit of overstaying their welcome. While Foxy can be funny, the character’s humor relies heavily on his obnoxious nature.

RELATED: 10 Anime You Need To Watch If You Enjoy Final Fantasy

Adventure of Nebulandia finds Foxy at his best, with the special doing a decent job of humanizing a figure that mostly acts as a punchline in the main series. The villain, Komei, is also pretty good.

16 The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta (7)

Although a solid film in isolation, The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta is perhaps the worst way to experience one of the franchise’s greatest early sagas. This 2007 film condenses an arc that took up more than 30 episodes in the series into a brief 90 minutes. That might not be as rushed as some of the arcs in the One Piece: Pirate Warriors games, but 90 minutes is still a tall order.

While the show has often been criticized for its slow pace, The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta has simply too much ground to cover to present anything more than a cliff notes version of this storyline.

15 Episode of East Blue: Luffy and His Four Crewmates’ Great Adventure (7.1)

Released in 2017, Episode of East Blue covers the formation of the Straw Hats and Luffy’s recruitment of Zoro, Usopp, Nami, and Sanji. Essentially, this is five segments squashed into a single special, making for a respectable cliff notes version of One Piece‘s earliest arcs.

As these stories are actually quite short in the manga and anime, Episode of East Blue does not feel all that necessary.

14 Episode of Chopper Plus: Bloom in the Winter, Miracle Sakura (7.1)

Another film adaptation of a canon storyline, Episode of Chopper Plus: Bloom in the Winter, Miracle Sakura shakes things up by adding Robin and Franky to the Drum Island Arc, characters who are introduced later down the line in the original manga. The animation can be quite stunning at times as, by this point, One Piece had mastered the art of delivering proper cinematic adventures.

While Episode of Chopper Plus: Bloom in the Winter, Miracle Sakura is an entertaining enough diversion, it does feel unnecessary, even more so than One Piece‘s other non-canon movies.

13 Heart Of Gold (7.2)

Setting up the stage for Film: GoldHeart of Gold shares some themes with that movie, although a direct connection isn’t established until the end of the special.

RELATED: One Piece: Every Straw Hat Pirate’s Age, Height, And Birthday

On its own, Heart of Gold is a typical but enjoyable One Piece story; the Straw Hats meets someone with a tragic past, a villain of the week is introduced, and some laughs are had along the way. While not much to write home about, Heart of Gold should please anyone looking for more of the same.

12 Film: Gold (7.2)

One Piece movies tend to stick close to the standard formula utilized by the manga. More often than not, the Straw Hats end up on a beautiful or insane new island, they run afoul of the location’s dictator, and then suffer a huge loss around the halfway mark. Naturally, the pirates rally and come back to defeat the villain.

Gold is One Piece at its most formulaic. Despite featuring practically no surprises, the movie’s central location, Gran Tesoro, and its manic pacing help paper over the story’s predictability.

11 Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island (7.2)

Although hardly devoid of creativity, One Piece movies are generally subservient to the manga. Out of all 14 releases, Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island is the only one that sets itself apart by highlighting its director’s, Mamoru Hosoda, strengths over the franchise’s conventions.

Along with a far looser art style, Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island challenges the bonds that link the Straw Hats together in a tale that gets pretty dark at times. The crew’s weaknesses are often played for laughs in most filler arcs, but this movie shines a proper light on the flaws of these characters.

10 Dead End Adventure (7.3)

At the fourth go of things, One Piece finally hit a home run with a movie. Dead End Adventure sees the Straw Hats taking part in an infamous race that attracts some rather dangerous crews, including the Gasparde Pirates that are run by a former Marine.

RELATED: 10 Great Anime Games No One Talks About

A highly entertaining romp that features a fantastic antagonist and plenty of impressive animation, Dead End Adventure is a delight from start to finish.

9 Episode of Luffy: Adventure on Hand Island (7.4)

Released to coincide with One Piece Film: ZEpisode of Luffy is both an original story and a more faithful retelling of a defining moment in the manga protagonist’s life.

The majority of the episode centers around the Straw Hats trying to free a wax sculptor from the Marines, but this special also covers Luffy’s early days with Shanks. In fact, anime-only viewers who want to learn how Luffy got the scar on his face should check out this movie.

8 Episode Of Sky Island (7.5)

The Sky Island Saga lasts for an overwhelming 52 episodes, with the Skypeia Arc making up the majority of it. While it is by no means bad, the anime adaptation drags in places and is one of the earliest examples of the show’s pacing venturing into too slow territory.

Episode of Sky Island, naturally, leaves a lot out, but it does cover the basics well enough to be worth recommending for fans who want to revisit this saga without sitting through the entire thing. However, newcomers should read the manga or watch the full anime version.

7 Episode of Sabo: Bond of Three Brothers – A Miraculous Reunion and an Inherited Will (7.6)

Following the death of Ace, One Piece introduced Sabo, Luffy’s other brother. Episode of Sabo covers familiar ground, albeit switching the perspective to the titular character. Sabo, Luffy, and Ace’s childhoods together are covered by this TV movie.

While the Marineford Arc stuff is interesting, the best part of this special takes place in Dressrosa. The movie covers the early parts of this arc with Sabo taking center stage. Sabo doesn’t get too much screentime in the anime, so this special gives the character some much-needed attention.

6 Stampede (7.6)

The most recent One Piece movie, Stampede is basically a tribute to the franchise as a whole. While most stories stick to the Straw Hats and movie-original characters, Stampede assembles seemingly everyone from the manga who is remotely recognizable, including Foxy and Wapol. The movie does introduce a few new characters, with Douglas Bullet being the standout.

RELATED: One Piece: Which Straw Hat Pirate Are You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign?

Stampede is One Piece at its most manic, a film that refuses to stop to take a breather. Overwhelming as the movie can be at times, Stampede delivers enough crowd-pleasing moments and exhilarating action to make it all worthwhile.

5 Strong World (7.6)

As the Straw Hats’ cinematic resume approached double digits, One Piece began to try and link the movies more to the manga. While still non-canon, Strong World fits in well with the franchise’s overall story and also introduces a villain, Golden Lion Shiki, with ties to Gol D. Roger and the World Government.

Strong World puts real stakes on the line; not only is East Blue in danger, but Shiki also kidnaps Nami. This is one of the best narratives in a One Piece movie, while Shiki’s floating islands are an impressive sight to behold. The final battle launches with perhaps the Straw Hats’ greatest lineup reveal as they put on stylish suits worthy of a film this good.

4 3D2Y: Overcome Ace’s Death! Luffy’s Vow to his Friends (7.8)

Unlike the “Episode” specials, 3D2Y covers new ground, although it does include flashbacks to canon moments. The movie takes place during the two-year timeskip following the Marineford Arc and before the Straw Hats reunite in the Return to Sabaody Arc.

When Boa Hancock’s sisters are kidnapped by a pirate who escaped from Impel Down’s Level 6, Luffy and Hancock have to team up to save them. While not canon, 3D2Y slots in well into the timeline and is one of the better filler additions brought on by the anime.

3 Film: Z (7.9)

2012’s Film: Z highlights a quality that has played a significant role in One Piece‘s enduring success: the franchise knows how to present sympathetic but still intimidating villains. Zephyr, the titular “Z,” is a broken former Marine seeking revenge against pirates for past indiscretions that caused him to lose faith in justice. While drowning the New World in lava is a couple of steps too far, Z’s hatred and actions are understandable.

Film: Z is a must-watch for fans of the series or anyone yearning for an engrossing and ambitious action anime.

2 Episode of Nami: Tears of a Navigator and the Bonds of Friends (8)

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, the highest-rated One Piece movies are not theatrical releases but TV special that cover some of the anime’s stories. Episode of Nami focuses on the Arlong Park Arc, which acted as One Piece‘s coming-out party and established the structure that would go on to define the majority of the manga and anime.

It is also one of the most emotional sagas in the series, establishing Nami’s backstory and cementing her relationship with the Straw Hats. Out of all the abridged movies, the Episode of Nami loses the least in translation; in fact, it benefits from approved animation and better pacing than the original version.

1 Episode of Merry: The Tale of One More Friend (8.1)

Leave it to One Piece to make one of its most emotional journeys revolve around a ship. Usopp and Chopper recount the Going Merry’s history to Brook, covering from its introduction to the Enies Lobby Arc that served as its big farewell.

Despite covering a lot of content, the TV special wisely anchors itself around the Going Merry, allowing the movie to condense its content without feeling like it’s leaving too much on the cutting room floor. Even though the Water 7 and Enies Lobby arcs should be watched in their entirety because they are amazing, Episode of Merry is still a great movie.

One Piece Movies Worth Watching – and Ones You Can Skip

Over its many years, the One Piece franchise has spawned fourteen movies of varying quality. That’s a lot of viewing, and not all of them are worth your time. So, from One Piece (2ooo) to the 20th anniversary’s One Piece: Stampede (2019), we’ve determined which of the series’ movies are skippable and which are essential.

Skippable: One Piece (2000)

One Piece (2000) sounds kind of important, but it’s really just a pleasant nostalgia trip. It’s set very early on in the series, before even Sanji joins the crew. Luffy, Zoro, Nami and Usopp frolic around East Blue, eventually facing an evil pirate named El Drago in what could very easily slide into the first thirty or so anime episodes. The animation isn’t anything special, but there is some nice comic relief. Some speculate the movie was a last-minute film convert, meaning it was originally going to be part of the main series as a filler arc. So, unless you’re really into retro One Piece, give this one a miss.

Skippable: Clockwork Island Adventure (2001)

This is a fine movie, but there are simply better One Piece films to watch. As someone steals the Going Merry, the crew (now featuring Sanji) set out to get it back. This leads them to Clockwork Island. The animation has improved a lot from the first movie and the aesthetic is still early One Piece. There are some nice character designs, along with some fun fights as the Straw Hats take on the curiously named Trump Siblings. Even with all its laughs, action and fanservice, the movie does nothing to justify essential viewing. It’s still very skippable, but not a bad watch.

Skippable: Chopper’s Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals (2002)

This is a whole movie just for Chopper, so it’s not a shock it’s often considered the worst of the One Piece movie lineup. As the title suggests, the story revolves around Chopper becoming king of an island of animals, which isn’t exactly the most exciting premise. Overall, though, it’s vintage One Piece: the crew make it to a new island, defeat all the bad guys there and that’s that. The final battle, at least, is entertaining. Unless you’re that elusive Chopper stan, this is a definite skip.

Essential: Dead End Adventure (2003)

Dead End Adventure (2oo3) is the first One Piece movie worthy of an essential viewing tag. Granted, it’s yet another high-budget filler arc, but this one’s good enough to justify its place in the franchise. The Straw Hats are embroiled in an exciting ship race including some fantastic movie-exclusive characters. The cast has expanded to include fan-favorite Nico Robin, and the animation looks great. Due to some care in production, or possibly direction by Kounosuke Uda (the usual One Piece director), Dead End Adventure gels with the original series a lot better than its predecessors. If you’re starving for some quality One Piece, this is your first port of call. Also, a certain essential movie down the line includes a cameo from a character in this one, so that’s another reason to add it to your watch list.

Skippable: The Cursed Holy Sword (2004)

This is a whole movie just for Zoro. On paper, it sounds pretty great, and is certainly more promising than another Chopper movie. Zoro is, after all, beloved by many, and he’s somehow the only Straw Hat yet to receive a lengthy arc in the anime. In this film, Zoro mysteriously leaves the crew, similar to Nami, Robin and Sanji in their respective anime arcs. Considering the recent “Whole Cake Island Arc,” this format holds a lot of promise. The film isn’t terrible, and it has some predictably exciting sword fights. Unfortunately, the characters are all a bit off, and it feels like the film wasn’t made with the whole series in mind. For this reason, most consider the fifth movie one of the weaker ones.

Essential: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island (2005)

Mamoru Hosoda, director of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Wolf Children and more, certainly doesn’t seem like the type of guy to take on a One Piece movie. When he did, though, it was truly something special. Never has One Piece been anywhere near as experimental, gripping and terrifying as it was in this film. The aesthetic is creative, there are some serious stakes, and the plot is uncharacteristically dark. You’ll be taken on a journey by Hosoda’s stylized animation, watching as the Straw Hats’ getaway to Omatsuri Island morphs into something way more serious than anyone expected. Even for those who aren’t well-acquainted with One Piece, this film stands out as a dazzlingly unique piece of media, rejecting the usual One Piece flair while still capturing the spirit of the series. Definitely check it out.

Skippable: The Giant Mechanical Soldier of Karakuri Castle (2006)

And, just like that, we’re thrust back into skippable One Piece. Yes, you may have misread the title: this isn’t the castle of Katakuri, one of the best latter-day One Piece antagonists. This is the castle of Karakuri, and it’s a lot less worthwhile. The crew go about their usual shenanigans, this time on Mecha Island. The seventh movie actually does have some interesting stuff: Luffy discovers his Gear Second power-up, something that didn’t appear in the anime. Unfortunately, this isn’t enough to make the film essential viewing.

Skippable: The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta (2007)

It’s nice to have a glossy retelling of One Piece’s “Alabasta Arc,” and it could be worth a watch if you want to relive Alabasta a little differently. It will always be a great arc, including one of the best One Piece fights in Luffy vs. Crocodile, as well as some other nostalgia hits like Zoro vs. Mr. 1. The film condenses the arc (sometimes a little uncomfortably) and makes some changes to allow for a shorter runtime. Smoker, for instance, isn’t present here. If you’re not a fan of how early One Piece looks, this might be more to your liking. If not, probably stick to the original, which endures with some brilliant episodes. Of course, because this film is a readaptation, it can’t really qualify for essential viewing, but it’s not a bad watch.

Skippable: Episode of Chopper Plus: Bloom in Winter, Miracle Sakura (2008)

Oh boy, another Chopper movie. This one is a reimagining of the anime’s “Drum Island Saga.” It pulls Vivi from the crew and slips in the previously absent Robin and Franky, as well as the Straw Hats’ second ship, the Thousand Sunny. There’s also a new villain standing alongside Wapol. It’s not completely clear why. It seems this was an experiment in retelling a classic One Piece arc quite differently, and while the film isn’t terrible, it’s nothing to write home about. With so many changes, as well as art and music that isn’t mind-blowingly good, this is another one of those rather pointless movies. Like its Alabasta equivalent, it’s still a welcome addition to the lineup. Definitely not essential viewing, though.

Essential: One Piece Film: Strong World (2009)

One Piece Film: Strong World. No movie up to this point was blessed with the word “film.” Likewise, none up to this point were supervised by Eiichiro Oda himself, so you know this one’s something special. With Oda’s tutorage and some fantastic animation, the tenth One Piece movie is a pure hype-fest. Fighting to save East Blue, the Straw Hats face off against the Golden Lion Shiki, a member of the Pirate King’s crew and the first man to ever escape Impel Down. He kidnaps Nami and is all-around bad news. Because this is still a movie, Shiki and his backstory technically aren’t canon, but it’s pretty easy to imagine they are. Oda’s involved, after all. The climactic fight is one of the best in all of One Piece, with each Straw Hat getting their time in the sun. This is accompanied by some of the best One Piece music. It’s overplayed endlessly later on in the series, but it sounded good here.

Skippable: One Piece 3D: Straw Hat Chase (2011)

More of an experimental stroll than a film, the eleventh One Piece movie dips its toes into 3D animation and does not succeed. It only runs for thirty minutes and looks a lot like a PlayStation game and very little like an anime movie. Don’t get us wrong: it’s great to have some more innovative One Piece, and the cel-shaded 3D animation doesn’t look as absurd as you might think. But with such low stakes, such a simple plot and such little imagination, there’s very little to gain from the movie. It’s best to forget this one exists.

Essential: One Piece Film: Z (2012)

The word “film” makes another appearance. Indeed, with Oda once again taking the helm, we’ve got another must-watch. Similar to Strong World, it wouldn’t be correct to call this a high-budget filler arc: it gives us some teasingly canonical (though technically noncanonical) backstory to the One Piece world. The story centers around Black Fist Zephyr, a former marine admiral, and incorporates an array of key marine figures, including fan-favorite Aokiji. Zephyr is one of the best villains in the series, receiving a sympathetic past that actually gets us feeling for him. The animation looks about as smooth as it ever has in One Piece, with the Zoro and Sanji fights receiving some true eye-candy. The final fight may be a bit lackluster, but people call the best One Piece movie for a reason.

Essential: One Piece Film: Gold (2016)

These latter few One Piece movies (excluding Straw Hat Chase) have a lot in common: great art, exciting cameos, fanservice, tried-and-true One Piece storylines and some Oda-approved exposition. One Piece Film: Gold is the longest movie yet, following the Straw Hats’ adventures in Gran Tesoro, which is kind of like the Los Angeles of One Piece. Untouched by the World Government, expect Gran Tesoro to allow a lot of familiar friends and foes to mix together in extravagant chaos. We’re treated to some fun fights and funky music. On the downside, there’s some disconcerting CGI, and the long runtime might bore you here and there. Overall, though, this is one of the most enjoyable films. It looks good, has lots of cameos, and there’s certainly nothing out of the ordinary, so enjoy some high-budget, celebratory One Piece. 

Essential: One Piece: Stampede (2019)

The 20th anniversary of One Piece brought us One Piece: Stampede, and it’s a whole lot of fun. It may not have the best plot, but it delivers some truly immense fanservice. With lovely art and animation, we’re blessed with a raging tempest of a story containing more cameos than you can count. The film gives us Bullet, one of the strongest One Piece villains, who dukes it out with the colorful cast. If you’re starving for more of the Worst Generation, old antagonists or long-forgotten filler characters, you’ll be rewarded in this movie. Just be prepared to make a few cheeky wiki outings, because even the most dedicated One Piece fans might not recognise everyone crammed into this film. It’s a treat for fans to see One Piece: Stampede play out, and definitely a nice reward for getting up to date with the series. However, wait on this one until you’ve watched the anime’s “Whole Cake Island Arc.”

One Piece Fans are Living for Newest Episode’s Movie-Like Animation

One Piece fans are really living for the movie quality level of animation in the newest episode of the anime! The anime has been steadily setting the stage for Luffy and the rebel forces’ raid on Onigashima, and the anticipation has been building through the roof as the anime has been updating its packaging with its opening theme and eyecatchers. The newest episode of the series officially makes that happen as Luffy and the others break ground on the island, and the anime commemorating this milestone with a huge episode that completely blew fans’ minds.

Enlisting the help of new fan favorite director, Megumi Ishitani (who previously garnered major praise with the episode exploring the fallout of the Reverie), Episode 982 once again pushes the boundaries of the weekly schedule for the series and delivers some top notch animation. But not just that, but a whole new lighting scheme, gorgeous character introductions, and more. It was just impressive all the way through.

Eiichiro Oda Shares Excitement for Upcoming ‘One Piece: Stampede’ Movie – OTAQUEST

The fourteenth One Piece theatrical movie, One Piece: Stampede, is set to release in Japan on August 9. While it might be just another entry in the long-running franchise, Stampede is special not only because it brings together the largest cast of any One Piece movie to date, but also because it marks the 20th anniversary of the series in animated form. It’s safe to say that everyone is pretty excited, but no-one more than series creator himself Eiichiro Oda, who expressed his excitement for One Piece: Stampede in a press release.

Oda’s comment

In his official comment ahead of the release of One Piece: Stampede, Eiichiro Oda addressed his friends and family, stating:

‘To those around me who are sick of hearing “I wanna see it soon, I can’t wait for release day” – I’m just that excited! It’s cool! It’s an awesome movie!’

It’s quite funny to think that Oda’s excitement for Stampede is at such a point that people have pulled him up for it, but it is telling that Oda is able to explain why he’s so excited, stating:

‘It’s the One Piece 20th anniversary movie. 20 years. A lot of things have happened in that time, both behind the scenes and in the story itself. But that’s precisely why all of the staff have been able to put together such an all-star movie! And I mean all of the staff!

‘To think of all the characters…! I’m so excited! The director and producer once said this – “We’re making a movie for the fans.” I totally see that. For real.’

Eiichiro Oda’s excitement for One Piece: Stampede seems to stem from the action-packed premise of the movie, which brings together a huge cast of characters from across the series for what is shaping up to be the most stacked theatrical entry in the series yet.

If Oda’s behind such a concept, then perhaps we should be as well. Some fans have, after all, expressed worry that Stampede might be a bit too much – especially compared to comparatively more streamlined last theatrical entry in the franchise, One Piece Film: Gold.

But this is a special moment for the One Piece franchise, as it celebrates 20 years since it first aired as an anime. With the story now winding down towards a climax (albeit very slowly) and big staff changes affecting the future of the anime as it continues into the Wano Kuni arc, perhaps we should take this moment to appreciate what an incredible 20 years it has been.

One Piece: Stampede release on August 9 in Japan.

90,000 films from worst to best according to foreign critics – News on Film About

Most viewers made Tom Cruise famous precisely because of this film series, in which he plays the role of special agent Ethan Hunt to this day. The premiere of the very first film based on the TV series of the same name took place in 1996, and the last one at the moment – “Mission: Impossible: Consequences” – was released 22 years later. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes rated each of the six installments in the series: in our review, we ranked them in order of increasing ratings – from worst to best.

“Mission Impossible”: films from worst to best according to foreign critics

Russian scientist Vladimir Nekhorovich invents a drug that can cure the deadly influenza virus. But in order to create an antivirus (“bellerophon”), he first had to come up with a virus that was used to test the effect of the drug – it was called “chimera.” If the virus falls into the wrong hands, it can easily start a worldwide pandemic: only Ethan Hunt’s team can save humanity from death.

Critical consensus:

Mission: Impossible 2 trailer
Young Agent Hunt is blamed for the deaths of Mission: Impossible squad members, including its leader Jim Phelps. Only Phelps’s wife, Agent Claire, remains alive during the execution of a secret mission. Hunt, who is considered a traitor, is now forced into hiding: to prove his innocence, he needs to find a real “mole”.

Consensus of Critics:

Trailer for Mission Impossible
Agent Ethan Hunt, who decided to retire, agrees to carry out the last task for his employers: he gathers a team and goes to rescue his former student Lindsay Farris, who was captured by the arms dealer Owen Davian …What should have been an easy walk suddenly turns into a series of dangerous missions in the Vatican, Shanghai and New York.

Consensus of Critics:

Trailer of the movie “Mission Impossible 3”
Agent Ethan Hunt again takes on an impossible mission. When his special squad is disbanded, the unemployed American intelligence officers are confronted with an international network of professional spies and special agents – the Syndicate. They are called the “outcast tribe.” The Syndicate plans to carry out several major terrorist attacks that will have to change the usual world order.

Consensus of Critics:

Trailer for Mission Impossible: Outcast Tribe
A special unit led by Ethan Hunt finds itself in an unenviable position: the team is falsely accused of organizing an explosion in the Moscow Kremlin. The agents do not have time to prove their innocence, after all, by order of the President of America, a special protocol is being introduced, within the framework of which all members of the detachment are called home. Now Hunt and his colleagues will have to act at their own peril and risk, because the world is threatened by a terrorist who is going to aim Russian nuclear missiles at the United States.

Consensus of Critics:

Trailer for Mission Impossible: Phantom Protocol
This time the super spy Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), who stole weapons-grade plutonium, is targeted by CIA agents: for them he is a criminal who is ordered to be destroyed. He is even opposed by one of the members of his detachment, carrying out the task of the government.

A story about the units of the Airborne Forces and the profession of a paratrooper – a person who must fight to the death, survive in the most difficult conditions, and fight at the front and behind enemy lines. The audience will get acquainted with the tactics and strategy of special forces participating in various operations – from reconnaissance to combat.

Films 1st – 4th

Airborne Forces. This abbreviation is familiar even to those who are far from military service. The sight of brave warriors in vests and blue berets has been admiring for more than a decade and instills confidence in the peaceful future of our country. “Winged infantry”, “From the sky, to the ground, into battle!” It’s all about them – the paratroopers. The history of the Airborne Forces spans over eight decades. Born in the twentieth century, they serve as guardians of the Fatherland in the twenty-first century. During this time, the Airborne Forces turned into a real elite of the Armed Forces.Their vanguard. This cycle is devoted to the history of the development of these troops. “First jump” The airborne assault divisions were lined up on the airfield. They are preparing to perform parachute jumps. Among the soldiers there are also “first-raiders” – young warriors who are just starting their way in the Airborne Forces. For them, this is the first and most exciting leap, in fact, their baptism of fire. Servicemen tell us about the peculiarities of service in the Winged Guard – from private to the commander of the Airborne Forces Vladimir Shamanov.In the historical part, there will be a story about the world’s first parachute landing, which was carried out in the Soviet Union in the summer of 1930. About the development of parachute technology and landing techniques, about aircraft equipment for dropping troops and about the most exotic projects that were proposed for transporting personnel to the rear of the enemy. “Hard in training” On the parade ground of the Ryazan Airborne Command School. Margelova, there are celebrations dedicated to the next graduation of cadets. In a short time, young lieutenants will go to the troops.They will have to train young soldiers who have ended up serving in the Airborne Forces. A paratrooper soldier needs to know a lot: artillery and communications, air defense and sniper, the art of reconnaissance and hand-to-hand combat, and much, much more … -s took on board a limited number of people, and the number was compensated by their quality. The historical part of the film is devoted to the development of military equipment and weapons of the Airborne Forces – small arms, airborne equipment, special equipment, as well as the methodology of training paratroopers, starting from the 30s.”Readiness number one” The Airborne Forces is one of the branches of the armed forces that are always on high alert. 76th Guards Airborne Assault Division. Combat training continues at the training grounds. The calculation of the self-propelled gun “NONA-S” performs exercises for coordination of actions. Combat firing of the D-30 howitzer. The division’s air defense units have received the latest Verba portable anti-aircraft missile system and are actively developing new weapons. Vasily Margelov was one of the first commanders of the Pskov division.The man for the Airborne Forces is truly iconic. It is not for nothing that the paratroopers themselves often decipher the abbreviation of the Airborne Forces as “Uncle Vasya’s troops.” “From Heaven to Battle” The development of the military-political situation in the world has entailed a change in the approach to ensuring Russia’s military security. The role of the army’s mobile forces has sharply increased. Airborne formations and units are completely autonomous in battle, they can be used on any terrain, and parachute into areas inaccessible to ground forces.The tactics and strategy of the paratroopers are changing. New types of equipment and weapons, such as BMD-4 and Sprut, are being developed and supplied to the troops. Parachute training now takes place in a wind tunnel, and a special pool has been built for scuba diving. Commander of the Airborne Forces Vladimir Shamanov tells about the current state of affairs in the troops. The historical part of the film is devoted to the most famous operations of our paratroopers during the Great Patriotic War.

Such cinema – Special project “Posters of New Kaliningrad.Ru “

” Everyone leaves this city, it pushes everyone out “, –
says Igor Grigorievich, referring to people dear to him. We drink at his house
Galitsky, we seem to have a cat with us. He is out of work, out of money, he was badly scalded, taking off from the stove
boiling water. Cinema went into talk and books like Visconti o Visconti. Meanwhile he too

But still there is Sovetsk, Tilsit Theater and Evgeny Marcelli. They are

I don’t remember what it was called, but suddenly
“October” again emerged from the darkness of
and invited Savostin to show new Russian cinema.
Organized meetings with authors, that is, they invited city leaders,
walked them around the city
and the coast, and they brought their copies and arranged for us almost
word and communication with the audience – the big October hall! – an obligatory part of the program. I remember was
Arabov – in a rainy winter in inflated nylon high boots walking from the “October” to the overpass. Probably
could bring “Mister Designer”, or “Days of the Eclipse”, or something newer. There was also Victor
Sergeev, who shot the popular “Genius” with Abdulov,
but also intelligent “Strange Men of Semyonova

and showed to Kaliningrad. (Presenting the work of Sergeev,
Igor slightly abused the epithet “piercing”, and the next morning after a joint trip
Svetlogorsk an unknown companion of the director, laughing, called Savostin
“Shrill-shrill”.Abused, more or less constantly).

“They will find a weak point and will not let them live.” Film about the ensemble of Ramzan Kadyrov’s wife

Dutch director of Russian origin Masha Novikova made a film about the famous children’s folk dance ensemble from Chechnya “Daimokhk”, created by Ramzan and Aiza Akhmadov. Their daughter Aminat, the soloist of the ensemble, became the third wife of Ramzan Kadyrov.

The film “Daimokhk” was awarded a special mention by the jury at the XIII Festival of independent documentary films “Artdokfest” in Riga, which ended at the end of September.The author decided not to show it in Russia for reasons of the safety of the heroes.

“This story began for me in 2002, when I arrived there,” says director Masha Novikova . – It was a film by another director. It was impossible to go to Chechnya with a Dutch film crew at that time, so I, as a Russian woman, went there just like that, with a small camera, to film the conditions in which children live and rehearse there. Streets, dilapidated halls, courtyards. At that time there were no hotels there, and I lived with the family of Ramzan and Aiza Akhmadov, made friends with them.Then a terrorist act took place under their windows, 18 soldiers were killed, and there were raids. It was a difficult situation and we were very supportive of each other. They were very afraid that they would find my little camera, they hid it in a vacuum cleaner. Then I took out the tapes, small MiniDV cassettes: searches were carried out at the airport in Nazran, they were looking for someone with a camera, because when a terrorist act occurs, the sniper is filmed.

Aiza Akhmadova in her house. On the wall – portraits of her husband and daughter Aminat

We were friends with this family for a long time.I also came later when I was shooting other films. And when they came to Europe, I met with them. Sometimes they called. Then I began to notice that they began to speak less on the phone, stopped coming to Europe. In 2011, I came to Chechnya with another film. I was with a film crew at the hotel, and Ramzan took me by car. He had a huge car, although he used to drive old Zhiguli cars and constantly repaired them. He brought me to some mansion. I realized that their life had changed dramatically.Then I found out that they all became deputy ministers, both Ramzan’s son Khasan and himself. And daughter Aminat is now close to the head of the republic. We met with her. It was her initiative to make a film, she said: 15 years have passed, let’s you shoot a sequel about how we live now. It inspired me because I wondered what happened to her. When we started talking, she was a romantic 15-year-old girl, and now she is a lady. Not the first, but the third lady in the country: she has her own houses, her position, she is the director of this and that.I told about it in Holland, they gave me money, they accepted the script. And then it turned out that you can’t go to her house and take pictures, you can’t do that, you can’t do that. Every time we wrote letters that we asked to come, we came, we filmed something, but often we just sat for a day or two and waited for something. These trips are very expensive, the trip takes two days, with an overnight stay in Moscow. It was such a hassle … Then we thought that we would make a video for them anyway. They wanted them to have a good advertising clip, they really wanted to re-establish ties with Europe.

Ensemble “Daimokhk”

– Why were these connections broken?

– When I was talking to people in Europe, Belgium, France, they said to me: “Oh, no, these are Kadyrov’s associates, we don’t want them.” The people who organized the festivals already knew everything. I also knew about this, but I had no idea how serious it was. All the time they performed only in the republic or went to Russia for competitions. They often performed at openings, closings, in between events.For example, as in the movie, between fights in ultimate fighting. Moreover, children took part in these performances. It was very difficult for me to shoot these scenes: a small, fragile ten-year-old boy was knocked out in 14 seconds. And our guys danced during the break: they wiped the blood, they danced, and again beat each other.

At some point, I realized that they did not quite understand why they had cut off contacts with them. They thought: if there was a good video, they would put it on the site, and everything would change.In this I supported them, we allocated separate funds for this and came up with it together. Ramzan got an idea: children find ancient weapons in the ancient tower. In Chechnya, there was such a tradition that when people quarreled, a woman came out, tore off a white handkerchief and threw it between them. A woman cannot take off her headscarf, but here she sacrificed everything in order to stop the war.

We wanted to come to her and see how she lives there with her child, a nanny. Even this was not allowed

Unfortunately, we were not able to shoot what I expected.Aminat promised many times that there would be a meeting with Kadyrov, but she was always postponed. I watched a lot of his interviews and prepared, because they told me, they say, they can wake you up at night, and you will go, because the head of the republic does not sleep with us, he works around the clock. And then I realized that, in fact, he would not say anything new. And there is no point in his interview, you can already record some television programs, because you can’t ask him provocative questions so that they would immediately throw me to the crocodiles.We never got to the castle to Aminat. Each time she said that she was about to be, but he would not allow.

– She wanted to show how she lives with Kadyrov?

– No, not with Kadyrov, she has her own castle. All those close to them have their own castles. We wanted to come to her and see how she lives there with her child, a nanny. Even that was not allowed, although her castle is next to her father’s castle, there are guards there. That is, we were allowed to shoot, but at the same time we could not get close.There was a strange feeling: on the one hand, we were allowed everything, but on the other, they had some very complicated rules. Even I, having known Chechnya for almost 20 years, got into a mess. In the video, a lock of hair was knocked out from under the kerchief of the girl. When they saw this clip, which cost us money, time, and editing, and we gave it to them, they said: “Everything is fine, only a lock of her hair was knocked out.” I say: “Listen, the girl is 12 years old!” Even during the war, the girls were the same as in Russia. They wore normal skirts and did not wear headscarves.Grown women wore something like a headscarf, but there was no complete closure.

– Isa recalls how she wore a mini-skirt in the late 70s. Did this moment embarrass her in any way?

– This is my 2002 shoot. The bombing, sometimes there was no water or light at home. But at the same time we could talk about everything without looking around at anyone. It was a normal post-Soviet republic. Now adat has become of great importance. I know that lately people are being punished for the fact that, for example, they somehow misbehaved at a wedding.The father hugged his daughter – some terrible punishment with an apology to the head of the republic. For me, it’s wild that in some part of Russia people can be punished for wearing a scarf or a skirt incorrectly.

– What implications for your characters could the screening of the film have? Why did you refuse distribution in Russia?

– I know that there are many Chechens in Russia who can come to the show and then retell something in Chechnya. They are probably more indifferent to the fact that it is shown in Europe, I don’t know… That’s just it: it seemed to me that I knew the rules – it turns out that I do not know everything.

– That is, just in case? Or were there any complaints about the footage?

– When I showed the first editing, there was a complaint about Hasan’s words: “We are not only terrorists.” This “not only” had to be removed. In Europe, in America they know that over the past 5-10 years a huge number of terrorist acts have been committed by Chechens. Of course, this does not mean that they came directly from Chechnya, and they were under the influence of organizations banned in Russia.Let them dissociate themselves from them, Kadyrov calls them shaitans, but I live in Europe and I know that the word “Chechen” in Europeans causes a wary attitude. Therefore, I consider his words to be absolutely correct and correct: “Father told us: we must prove to the world that we are not only terrorists, but also people with an age-old culture.” Then, in Chechnya, everyone knows that Aminat is Kadyrov’s third wife. And when I said this in the offscreen text, it turned out that it was impossible to talk about it. I think that in Russia this could have consequences.

Aminat Kadyrova in the film

– In Russia, this is direct evidence of a crime, because polygamy is prohibited.

– One marriage is concluded at the registry office, the rest are concluded by the imam. In Chechnya, everyone knows that the head of the republic, and not only him, has more than one wife. So why on earth should I have been silent? It would be self-censorship: no one told me, but I myself would have thought so.

– They, apparently, are also constantly engaged in self-censorship, and the degree of their tension does not even allow one to imagine that they could reveal themselves in the frame.

You cannot live in a country in which the worst things happen, murder, torture, and at the same time pretend that you do not notice anything

Their self-censorship is huge! They are so afraid to say or hint at something that I had to convey the atmosphere of fear in some other way: music, voids. Because they neither in word nor in spirit did not hint, at least in front of the camera, about their fears and doubts. If Isa says that before she could run away, but now she cannot, because she has a huge family, then I understand this in two ways, but in fact she means: if there is a war again.But she says, “If something happens.” And under this “something” we ourselves can think of anything. But it seemed to me, on the contrary, that if I made a film about how they feel good, how happy they are, I would just substitute them more.

– Why?

– Because it is impossible to live in a country in which the worst things happen, murder, torture, and at the same time pretend that you do not notice anything. The republic is small, everyone knows each other there. Oyuba Titieva (90,241 Chechen human rights defender convicted of drug possession.- Approx. RS ) was arrested while we were editing the film. Everyone knew about it: teips, villages. Small territory, few people. By family ties, everyone is very connected to each other. Of course, they do not say anything against the authorities, but they understand that the same can happen to them at any time.

– To whom were you afraid to set them up, portraying them as happy? Before Europe? What if they need to flee to Europe?

– They are not running anywhere yet. But I didn’t want to show them as collaborators, as they are considered in Europe.I don’t think I have the right to say that.

– That is, they are still collaborators, but you do not blame them for this?

– I cannot judge, because I love and respect them very much. I understand the situation in which they find themselves. They became hostages, behave like hostages – carefully, carefully. Probably, if I got into such a situation, I would behave the same way. The most important thing that was inherent in Chechen nature has disappeared – pride. They cling to traditions, dances, towers: “Our goal is to preserve traditions, culture.”It seemed to me that these words are no longer worth anything. Well, where is honor and dignity, if a father says to the head of the republic: “Thank you for killing my son” only because he was threatened: if he does not say this, then the second or third will be publicly killed.

– How many children do Ramzan and Aiza have, what is their fate?

– He has three children. Everyone there gets married very early: one son has three children, the second, Aminat has one son. Everyone knows that this is little Kadyrov. His children from his first wife also dance in the “Daimokhk” ensemble.In the republic, everyone knows by name all daughters, nieces, and confidants. And everyone who comes … to NTV knows everything too. But everyone is showing the perfect picture on central television.

Ramzan Akhmadov. Still from the film

– Do I understand correctly that Ramzan Kadyrov took Aminat as his wife and after that the honors fell on Daimokhk ?

– This is all part of cultural policy. This is what the Minister for National Culture said: “Culture is the basis of ideology.” If Ramzan Akhmadov once wanted culture and dance to be the face of the republic, so that the world could see that there are cultural traditions in the country, then the government is using it, which says: “We are representatives of this culture.”Aminat sang when she was a girl. And she wanted to become a singer, which, in principle, is considered not very decent for a girl in Chechnya. And although Ramzan Kadyrov learned about her precisely from her songs, now she performs only at the evenings at which he is present.

– Didn’t it happen that the ensemble became a court dance troupe, a serf?

– In my eyes – absolutely. They probably would not agree with me. We see: men are sitting at the table, children are dancing. Some kind of holiday – children are dancing.They dance all the time where the head of Chechnya is present.

– One of the soloists who became a builder says that he danced in Europe because he felt the mission, and now he would not, because it turned into entertainment.

– He lived there for seven years and his English is better than his Russian. He believes that dances have lost the meaning they had during the war. I think he is entitled to this opinion. Honestly, when he said this, we, the film crew, were afraid for him, we say: “Listen, maybe you shouldn’t say that?” I think he was spoiled by seven years in England, he became more freedom-loving.Hassan was also educated in England.

– Why did they all return to Chechnya?

– Family ties there are so sincerely strong, there can be no such thing that a person does not talk to his brother or his nephew does not honor his aunt. Everyone there helps each other. And families are big, cousins, second cousins, uncles. Therefore, it is impossible to escape. You are never alone. You always have relatives who remain hostages. A year ago, there was a case with an athlete who left for Europe, who was forced to return by arresting his brother.They will always find a weak point, which they will put pressure on, and you will not be allowed to live in peace.

NSTU – Philology – Club of Intellectual Cinema Lovers

November in the Club of Intellectual Cinema Lovers, a viewing and
discussion of the film

“Dislike” (2017).
Director A, Zvyagintsev. Presenters – students from gr. F-51 Podgrebelnaya Karina, Denisova Elizaveta and
student gr. ZhL-51 Demidov Kirill.

to the presenters of the film: “There are always a lot of people in the CLIKE discussions, but
we couldn’t expect such a full house.With great difficulty, we accommodated everyone
get to know the film, and the discussion that followed, and the essays we received
after discussing the film, it was worth it. We, as presenters, are happy to receive
such essays, we thank all the participants and share our work with you. ”

Podrebelnaya Karina , F-51:

I chose the film “Dislike” for viewing in CLIKE
the famous Russian director Andrei Zvyagintsev.This was no coincidence. to me
I wanted to show the guys something new from Russian cinema, which is not
is in high demand among the population. Complex film that makes you think
feel, experience – these are the criteria of my search for display. How do I
I think I found all this in the film “Dislike”.

The film tells about a modern family, which
is on the verge of divorce. It would seem a common thing. It so happens that people
part, but the family presented to us has a thirteen-year-old boy Alyosha,
which neither parent needs.The film is mesmerizing, what is happening
fetters. I felt very strange and uncomfortable in the audience, as if I myself
failed in this film and there will be no chance to go back. Everything is so
gloomy and at the same time believable. Because of this, there is a feeling of fear for one’s own
the future and for the future of their country. The film permeates the audience with cold, feeling,
that there will never be anything good and bright in lives.

The problem of modern man is loneliness.Now people almost do not love anyone and they themselves are unloved. Reality is replaced
social networks: posts with photos of yourself, tweets about yourself, soulless likes and
estimates. Modern man chooses this instead of actually loving.
from the bottom of my heart, rejoice from the heart. It is sad and depressing to watch the main
the heroes of the film. They have nothing but work and office equipment, the notorious
mobile phones. technology. They do not know how to talk, give joy, receive
love. What is the reason for these troubles? It is not completely clear to me.Their life is like
was spiritless, and remained 2 years later after the disappearance of her son.

Lyuba, ZhL-73

Perhaps one of the most difficult films
seen by me lately. Andrey Zvyagintsev, film director,
conveys information to the audience, after which you experience mental pain and
you want to change yourself and into the world. It is important for me that after I have watched, in
human consciousness was changing.

I think the most impressive moment
This picture is a scene of Alyosha’s sobbing, who overheard a quarrel between his parents.These sobs
filled with such pain that I want to yell at my parents right now, make
come to your senses, ask: what are you doing? Who gave them the right to break someone else’s,
unprotected, childhood life. What did you think when you started a family? But you understand
it’s too late, there is no way to get through to these people.
From this indifference of parents to their children, tears came to me.

“Dislike” – a picture that
shows the life of society. We become indifferent to each other, more and more
more selfishness appears in our lives.Everyone is interested only in their own
happiness, success, money, comfort. Only people forget – happiness alone is not
build. The director perfectly conveyed the picture of our world – a departure from reality in
gadgets. This is especially clearly shown in the moment of a Skype conversation, Anton
(Zhenya’s lover) with her daughter. In their dialogue, Anton asks when
they will see each other, and the daughter replies that she also sees him via the Internet. Is it
Internet communication, replace a real meeting with your father?

This picture involves many
topics.For each viewer, in addition to the main idea, there is at least one topic,
which will hook him.

I recommend this film to all people who
are not indifferent to their lives. And I hope that everyone who looks at it,
something will be deposited in the soul and mind.

“Dislike” is a film about each of us, he
shows what our and other people’s lives can be. It’s also about choice, oh
feelings, fear, hatred, loneliness and, oddly enough, love.
Love is what unites us all.This is what our life is built on. Nice,
but a scary film that will not leave anyone indifferent.

Denisova Elizaveta , F-51:

Andrey’s Films
Zvyagintsev for me – these are completely inexplicable emotions, closely associated with
fear. Of course, his films have nothing to do with the ones we are used to.
horror films and other “frightening” works of cinema.His films –
it is piercing realism, painfully vital and makes the blood freeze in

Of course, everything said here will be
an exclusively subjective view of a person who is far from the most knowledgeable in cinema.
But I will still try to translate my emotions into more or less adequate for
perception of the form. I like this film.

I always pay attention to the name itself
film. The word “Dislike” prompts me, first of all, to think that
everything happens between all these people: hatred, envy,
rivalry, but not love.By the way, the very word “love” is repeated in the film.
very rarely and never in the context of parent-child relationships. Zhenya and Boris
tell their new “beloved” (although it is very difficult to call them) that
love them, but there is hardly any truth in this. The man to whom Zhenya
confesses in love at night, answers her with silence, which she does not notice or
just doesn’t want to notice.

The family in this film acquires some
completely unpleasant and destructive meaning.Zhenya runs from his mother, creating
family, which he later regrets. Boris’s mistress also acts in a mirror-like manner. Both of them
give birth to children and marry him. But Zhenya later confesses in a fit of rage
about the former desire to have an abortion, about the fact that there was never love, that everything is only
use each other. And this scene becomes truly terrible: after all, in this
the very moment their son is probably already dead. What she thought to do for years
ago, realized now. Why, then, are these searches necessary? Why do you need this
the hypocrisy that has covered all these people with a filthy veil?

The police refuse to search for the boy.From him
his family turned away, which should have protected and protected the child. From
he was turned away by the state, which must protect its citizens. Man
alone in the middle of a filthy and disgusting world, and the man is this little
a boy unnecessary to anyone in this world.

Zozulin Denis , ZhL-71:

Do you think the world will end?


The other day
I was able to watch Andrei Zvyagintsev’s film “Dislike”. Before that I was not
familiar with the work of Andrei Zvyagintsev, and to watch this film, as well as to
I was very skeptical about most Russian films. In many ways this
skepticism formed against the backdrop of the streaming stamping of commercial films in
Russia. I, knowing nothing about the film and the director at that time, knowingly
prepared for the fact that the film “Dislike” is another snotty melodrama about
unhappy love between two people with all the sobbing and
ahami.But I was wrong. I was wrong, but I was not annoyed.

from the very beginning, music is heard growing and driving into a feeling of anxiety, and in
a gloomy gray palette of colors catches the eye, forcing the viewer to gradually
immerse yourself in the depressing atmosphere of the film. At the beginning of the film, a tree is shown.
It is the tree that is often considered a symbol of life. In this movie, the tree is
a symbol of life that does not exist.

the film takes place in one of the sleeping areas of Moscow in 2012.Many
worried about the approaching end of the world, but in the Sleptsov family this end is already
came. As a result of the same “dislike” in the family, there is a conflict where
a 12-year-old boy finds himself between a rock and a hard place. Parents are ready
leave your child to the mercy of fate, because each of them already has his own
family and the same boy they simply do not need. Becoming an “invisible” witness
conversation of their parents, the boy Alyosha runs away from home. Only after almost
for a day, the unfortunate parents realized that their son was missing.What drove them at that moment?
Guilt or parental instinct? It doesn’t matter anymore: after all, with
the emergence of a common goal arises the hope that the problem will unite their family and everything
will get better. But this hope is also rapidly fading away, and you understand that “hey
there will be no end. A search and rescue team is involved in the search for the boy
– perhaps the only people who are not indifferent to the fate of Alyosha.

in the middle of the film, you begin to realize that there is no happy ending in the film
will (Zvyagintsev, in my opinion, perfectly managed to convey the atmosphere
hopelessness) and the boy will hardly be found alive.Though
the director leaves the ending of the film open, which gives everyone food for
reflections and a reason to think about what happened to Alyosha, alone
the scene in the film, in my opinion, is the key one, makes us understand that the film
came to its logical end. This is the morgue scene. The doctor shows
to parents the body of a boy matching the description of Alyosha, after which the mother
begins to cry in horror, together with his father, claiming that Alyosha has a birthmark
spot on the chest.The next shot shows us an absolutely mutilated body, where
it would be simply impossible to see the birthmark, and the mother refuses to do
DNA test. I believe that this scene is key, since Zvyagintsev with her
with help showed that the parents were not ready to accept the death of their son, while they showed
your real emotions.

2 years. The end of the world did not happen, but it seems that people are still waiting for it.
The couple are divorced and live with their new families.The father is still indifferent
but already for a new child, and on the TV screen there is news about the war in Ukraine. AND
if you look deeper, “Dislike” is a film not only about the conflict in the family,
but also about the country’s hatred of its children. Zvyagintsev using metaphorical images
passed it on. View this film from the point of view of only one problem
the institution of the family, in my opinion, would be too trivial, so the director
added some ambiguity to his picture.

in the last frame we are shown the same tree again, the same alarming
music as in the beginning.A tree as a symbol of life. And you sit and wonder
the question: “Was there life in the film?”

Pankova Vitalina ,

“Dislike” – the first film by Andrey Zvyagintsev,
which I looked at. And she was not disappointed. There must have been others of him
work may be better, but I, as a beginner in the study of creativity Zvyagintsev,
I will start only from the movie I watched.

“Dislike”.Film nominated for the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.
A film that touches on family values. A film showing life.

An oppressive and unpleasant atmosphere arises from
first frames. Late autumn, almost winter, snow, cold shades, gray sky … Image
nature throughout the film goes in parallel with the development of feelings and emotions
heroes and introduces some clarifications, inspiring both hope and strengthening

The main character of the film is not escaped,
a disadvantaged boy, not his so-called parents, and not even a model of their
an unhappy, meaningless family, namely love itself.Rather, her

Strange, but almost all the heroes on the recognition in
love answered with the question: “Do you really love me?” Having received satisfactory
for them, but commonplace for an outside observer the words “yes, of course”, again
abstracted from external problems, content with only a momentary impulse
completely indecent passion and seemingly unsupported
the realization that someone loves you. The attitude of the heroes of this film to love is ridiculous:
love is expressed not only in words, but also through the attitude towards a person.When in
a new son was born to the family of the father of the missing boy, contact with
an object of love, giving way to gloomy silence and detachment. Fictional
love, which once existed in words, evaporated, leaving behind
viscous awareness of a spoiled life, incorrigible deep mistakes and constant
anger. And the reason for everything is
misunderstanding of love as a high feeling. Parents are cold to their children; children,
without absorbing the affection and care necessary in childhood, they cannot give anything to their
children.Dead end. Regularity. Hopelessness. This is clearly felt in the film.
Of course, not in the first minutes. Changeability of generations that do not understand love,
the work of police and search groups brought to automatism, season,
hanging on the opposite transition from autumn to winter … All this becomes a metaphor
terrible endless dislike.

gives the impression of a raw piece of real life, the characters of which
just not able to live normally.Then a logical question arises: “Who
will he be able to live normally and will he be able to? ” Answer,
unfortunately, it leans in the negative direction, foreshadowing not only an exacerbation
relations between people, but also the imminent decline of the human era. This is probably why
the film runs a news program with the Apocalypse that foreshadowed the calendar

If children feel unnecessary and deprived
understanding and love, can they live normally and give life to others? No.The only possible way out, in their opinion, is to run. Unfortunately from reality
you will not run away.

Those who have left the race are left behind.
The runaway boy Alyosha, deciding to end all problems by simply leaving
them, went beyond the scope of history. He ceased to be a man, becoming a symbol
manifestations of “dislike”, the subject. In this film, parents treat children in
force of terrible stereotypes: “it should be done.” We must get married and have a child so that
stay at work, you must not miss the opportunity and get married, you need something
do it …

this film has a lot of connotations.A dream about a lost tooth “foreshadows” the death of a person;
ribbon of red and white colors act as a kind of attempt to protect yourself from
reality; treadmill – trampling in one place … Everything reflects the oppressive and
a hopeless picture that is compounded by bad news in the country and the world, and
also a gloomy landscape. Heroes stew in their own juice, convincing themselves that they
loved and needed by someone. In fact, they all drown in a swamp of despair and
are being pulled by the next generations.

engine – the turnover of generations, the renewal of life. And sooner or later everything
will again return to the original, “everything will be repeated as before: night, icy ripples
channel, pharmacy, street, lantern “…

Potapenko Marina , ZhL-72:

It’s fun to watch fate play puzzles. At times
it’s amazing how she connects shapes that fit together. When
the bending of the face is continued by the partner, forming the picture.And sometimes terrifying like fate
brings something so inappropriate people who, purely outwardly, are united by an unwanted
son Alyosha.

How often do we see this? Alas, yes. It is perfect
simple story. Zvyagintsev shows us the usual setting, while in front of
through the eyes of the audience, a three-act story-drama unfolds. The tie where
we are introduced to the heroes. The main conflict immediately unfolds: Alyosha

search for a child, the work of a search service, the actions of parents and their reaction to everything
happening. The climax takes place in the morgue, where the disfigured body is identified
child. But the viewer will never know whether it is Alyosha or not.
And finally, the denouement, where we see how everyone lives
from the parents of the missing boy two years later.

The simplicity and unpretentiousness (if I may say so) of this film
I explain by the director’s desire to make the story down to earth.There is a feeling
that everything shown on the screen is happening here, very close.

Should the boy’s parents be scolded and condemned? Endlessly. On the
such people can only be viewed with contempt. However, the film does everything to
make us feel their vision of life. The director does not show these
parents as antagonists, he makes it clear that there are such people. Sure,
every normal person will hate such parents in twenty minutes
film, but we are given to understand why they are.They were surrounded by hating parents
and therefore they themselves became hating parents; anger in their souls not only
grew, but also passed on to each other. This does not justify the heroes, only
shows that dislike is transmitted as an infection, and you yourself can be it

Why was the film made? Show how bad it is? What is love –
is this secret knowledge not given to everyone? Fortunately, I have not found a single match.
between the characters of this film and my family members.And I really wanted to go home, I wanted to
hug everyone and say “thank you.” For the sake of this it is worth filming and watching such

Anna Arkhipova , ZhL-62:

Drama is not the most
my favorite genre of creations in the film industry, but this film is an exception. Why? Movie
“Dislike” evokes emotions, makes you think and reflect on the eternal
themes. Let’s start with the main one, with the image – I’m talking about that finished picture,
which we see on the screen.Dislike is one of the few films that
look “from the inside”, creates a feeling of presence next to the actors. Thanks to
this effect gives the impression that you see a fragment from your own

Zvyagintseva reflects all the dirt of reality. The boy’s mother is the rudest person, not
letting go of the phone, the father is a soft-bodied office plankton, in general,
worthless little man. Both have lovers, probably this is also the norm for the modern
person.The main character during the day often recalls the fact of existence
her son, but she does not perceive her own son as her own blood,
in need of care and attention, but as her own mistake that should have been avoided.
And she would have found out about the disappearance of the child if she saw the post on Instagram. Also striking
work of an operative. Civil servant shown enough
true. After the words of the detective about the long terms of the search for the boy and
the difficulties of this process, the thought was born that the boy’s mother is now
will answer: “Okay, we will wait until he returns himself.”Surprisingly, this is not
It happened. The search for the boy causes a number of perplexities. They were looking for him, apparently, because
which is so necessary, as if for show, at the same time the scale of the search work is striking:
it was a thorough and massive search, organized by a group led by
coordinator. As the end of the film shows, the characters’ lives have not changed in any way,
in addition to the new iPhone, the mother and the new son of the father, who, by the way, the father
again pays no attention. The vicious circle in which the heroes are
will not be interrupted with the advent of new generations.Children who were not loved become
adults who cannot love.

But there are children
not only in the family, we are all children of our home country. Homeland is shown in the film
as something uncomfortable, slimy, with constant catastrophes, wars. I want to
to flee the country, from the family, from work: such a circle of hopelessness.

Me the film “Dislike”
made me think about the value of relatives and friends, about rash decisions
and their consequences, about public oppression by the media.

Erofeeva Daria , F-71:

Film “Dislike”
heavy. After it, there is a strange feeling of emptiness and a feeling of nausea.
It’s hard to watch. I would like to stop watching at the very beginning. Do not know,
what turns me off this movie so much. Despite the quality
camera work, good acting and a more or less interesting plot,
“Dislike” does not attract attention.This film does not look with interest: it is not here
sudden plot twists that leave you breathless, but
nevertheless, I think this film should be watched.

talks about problem relationships based on “flying”. The main
characters do not think about their son, everyone tries to relieve themselves of responsibility
for the future of Alyosha. The child subtly feels the atmosphere of hatred and disrespect in
family and decides to run away.But, blinded by new novels, Boris and Zhenya (parents
boy) do not pay attention to the son. For some reason they dream that a new life
help them get away from problems and become happier. The end of the film draws our life
the main characters after the divorce. Boris does not love a child from his second marriage. He is with
complete indifference refers to the upbringing of the baby. So that the boy does not get confused under
feet, the father takes him to the playpen in the nursery, equipped in the same way as
the room of the son from the first marriage.Maybe Zhenya is happy? She has no children, she
provided, but the same killing cold settled in the family. In the final
scene Zhenya runs along the treadmill, as if trying to escape from herself. Face
it expresses nothing but fatigue, boredom. Divorce did not help the heroes of this
film to achieve happiness, but only alienated people from this happiness.

Sivkova Alina , F-61:

I love Andrey
Zvyagintseva, I just love it!

Severity and
denial – the first associations that come to mind after viewing
film.”Dislike” hypnotizes, but from some dark side. Tragedy
of the modern world, which is caused by the doom of relations that arise even
between dear, at first glance, people. Did I like this movie? And yes and
no. Such an ambivalent assessment is not because the plot pumped up, not because the actors
played badly. On the contrary, the form of performance is quite lively and clear,
atmospheric and moderately dynamic, it’s just that I’m a spectator who doesn’t like to watch
on “open wounds”.I do not like it when they immediately point out the problem, without an introduction
and context. Zvyagintsev was able to shorten the context. An episode with a lonely guy
playing childish carelessness in early spring, is quickly replaced by
a child sobbing silently in the dark, who is going through the divorce of unloving friends
friend and his own parents. The absolute loneliness of a child in a comfortable
a spacious apartment next to the cold ones, busy renewing their personal lives
parents. And why, in fact, are the parents getting divorced? It feels like they
just decided to rebuild their lives, find a better storyline, and what it feels
while their child is not important to them.In this film, everyone is only worried about
yourself. The father is only worried about his career, and his new wife wants recognition in
love, and chhat she wanted, that her “beloved” is morally and physically difficult.
Grandma is not at all a typical representative of the outgoing generation … Mobile phone
often appears in a close-up film (just like in the modern world): in it,
wanting to find out the interpretation of dreams, the new wife of the protagonist is stuck after sex.
On the phone, returning in the morning after a date, instead of looking at
room to the child, the mother is in correspondence with her lover.The phone is indifference
closeness, limitation.

It turns out that
no one loves anyone? Is it that bad? But I liked the people who
came to the aid of this callous family. Maybe this is a possible development
human society? A model of “good parenting” without the influence of others
people of the same state?

Here they are,
human vices. And already for their exposure, Andrei Zvyagintsev can be said
thanks.This film is a very likely scenario of what we have become or
we will become, if we do not turn to morality, ethics, conscience. And this thought
the director of the film reveals so openly, so sincerely, without flirting and without
embellishment that you involuntarily begin to think with sadness: “Or maybe this is the way it is …”

Sokolova Daria , ZhL-72:

Film “Dislike”
director Andrei Zvyagintsev leaves in strong tension after watching.If you want to relax and watch a cozy movie, then this movie is not for you. IN
the picture raises the problems of the family, real mothers and in general all life in
the whole. When I went to see this film, I did not think that it would be so

At the center of the film
this is a family going through a divorce. Unfortunately, now there are divorces
occur at every turn, people stop cherishing family values. But in
the film, everything is also overshadowed by the fact that the parents after the divorce are going to give
your child to an orphanage.After this scene, the heroes of the film called me
complete disgust that persisted throughout the entire viewing. Child,
after hearing their conversation, runs away from home. In fact, I was even surprised that
parents started looking for him. In my opinion, they were looking for a child simply because
what is so necessary, taking care not of him, but of yourself.

shows how long the heroes drive the car, how they eat, change clothes. And the viewer
plunges even more into the “everyday life” that surrounds him.In this film
there is almost no musical accompaniment. In my opinion, the director wanted to show
everything is realistic, as it happens in real life. Zvyagintsev’s film gives
to understand how indifferent people are to everything that surrounds them. Everybody cares and
think only of themselves, “drown” in their lives, not noticing the problems of others. Not in vain
the director recreates those moments as strangers pass by ads about
looking for the boy and do not pay any attention to them.The same can be said for
about the rescue squad: rescuers post missing boy announcements where
seeing those ads is going to be a lot of work. Who will go for the stop, crawling
through the drifts to see what kind of paper is hanging there on the post? All this
speaks of the hypocrisy and indifference of people to someone else’s grief, and to their own

This soulless and
pretended people are opposed by only one person – the child Alyosha. But what
means one against all? Unable to withstand everything that is happening around him, he
runs away, leaving people alone with their worries.

Full movie I
hoped that the child would be found safe and sound. But the director decided
leave the ending open. It is not known what happened to Alyosha and whether he is alive at all.
This gives viewers an opportunity to reflect on the importance of family values ​​and
human life as such. At the end, we are shown that after the loss of a child
nothing has changed. The attitude of a father to his already other son is just as rude,
what it was with Alyosha. And the mother “found her happiness” in the form of another lover,
but the routine did not disappear, the woman simply, one might say, “exists”, and not

I believe that
such films should be shown. Unfortunately, what is shown in the film is
our reality, from which you can’t get away.

Valeria Mitrokhina , F-71:

Director Andrey
Zvyagintsev in his picture showed us the life of ordinary people, and also revealed the idea,
that everything originally comes from the family. How do relationships work between people?
related by family ties, as parents managed to put love in their child,
care, ability to see and hear other people, help people and support them,
so it will live in the soul, heart, consciousness of each person for all his remaining
a life.Therefore, the title of the film is significant: born and raised in an atmosphere of dislike,
a person cannot be normal. With constant pain, fenced off from everyone,
such a person will live his life, constantly wandering from one corner to
to another in the hope that someone will be able to notice him, accept and give him a part
your love. So, for example, the main character of the film Eugene wandered, who in
the new man saw a possible object for love and tenderness. But at the end of the movie
it was clear that her life had not changed: this woman continued to live inside
its iron cocoon of callousness.And the memory of the lost son who
should have awakened love in the souls of these people, no one ever needed it. A son
was a kind of burden with which his own mother was so easily ready to say goodbye. Neither
a drop of respect for a friend for a friend, not a drop of love, not kind, affectionate words and hugs
was not shown in the film. Only callous hearts were shown. IN
the film breathed cold against the background of the dullness of life and terribly ache in the chest. Open
the ending of the film puzzled everyone, but at the same time gave us food for thought,
I had to become co-authors for a few minutes… Not a hard film, not a scary one,
he’s just real, he shows life as it really is, just not
everyone is ready to accept this and put up with this truth.

Gorelova Anastasia , ZhL-71:

In the film “Dislike”
Andrey Zvyagintsev raises real life problems. This movie shook me
to the core. Shown here are families whose members live purely for themselves,
parents do not think about children, and mothers are not able to fulfill even their own
maternal responsibilities, not to mention the fact that they are not able to give love to children.Divorce is one of the most pressing problems in family life. It only entails
negative consequences affecting the mental state of children.

In the film
“Dislike” shows a marriage of convenience. The main characters sought to find their happiness
in other people, but it turned out to be meaningless. I believe that with this
It is impossible to find true family happiness with a selfish approach to life. After all
only a family man who consciously approaches the creation of a family, showing
sincerely love, can live a truly happy family life.

The author of the film raises
communication deficit problems. All people are in the virtual world of gadgets.
The main character could not live without a phone at all, all the time she was photographed
on the phone, corresponded with her lover on the phone. She replaced the real
virtual life. In my opinion, the main character is not worthy to bear the title.
mother, because all the maternal qualities in her were absolutely absent. Which
is she a mother if she wanted to send her own son to a boarding school ?! I am very
sympathized with the boy and worried about him.This boy deserves a different attitude.
to yourself. And the manifestation of aggression towards the son comes from a lack of love. Boy’s mother
became so tough because her mother did not love her as a child. Children not only
externally, but also internally copy the behavior of their parents. In my opinion,
joining a family, you need to be ready for any situation, while you cannot lose
a sense of responsibility for the child. Even if the child was born from an unloved man,
This child is still your own son.Only after the disappearance of his son from
parents have a sense of responsibility for him. And this feeling arose
it seems to me just for show. The heroes of the film “Dislike” are so
stupid not to think about each other. For example, the protagonist’s mistress knew
that his son had disappeared, that the search for his son was going on, but at the same time she called herself and
she said she was bored and wanted to meet.

In this film
TV is talking about the end of the world, about the war in Ukraine, about the Apocalypse.In nature
only cold seasons are shown: autumn, winter. Feels uncomfortable
a tense atmosphere that makes you shiver. What’s going on in
a separate family, becomes a metaphor for the general ill-being of life. In the end
film in the eyes of the main characters, I did not see happiness. These people seem to want
run away from all the problems, but realize that they have nowhere to hide. In my opinion, u
this film has an open ending. The viewer himself must think about whether the boy survived
or died.

I believe that
films like these are worth showing because they teach morality,
humanity, teach that you need to think about what a family is. What’s the point
human communication.

I believe that
we all should appreciate what we have, because sooner or later we may lose it.
You need to enjoy life, love it, because we are all not eternal.

Kashirskaya Anastasia , F-61:

At the heart of the plot
film “Dislike” – real life, life as it is, with all its realities.This is not a story of specific people, but a projection of many human destinies. And from
it becomes uncomfortable.

Main characters,
Evgenia and Boris, choke on their hatred and drown in selfishness. They don’t like
and never loved each other. Obviously, the heroes of this film simply do not
know how to feel the feeling of love. “I have never loved anyone, only my mother, when
was small, ”says Evgenia. Dislike breeds dislike. In this
oppressive environment forced to grow up innocent little man,
twelve-year-old boy Alyosha.”You can not live in dislike”, so the child
disappears. Frost on the skin from the fact that selfish adults do not even immediately notice
the loss of my son, they are so passionate about the arrangement of their personal lives.

Scary and then
the same time, it is obvious that after what happened, the heroes will not change and no lessons
they will not extract for themselves. Boris is also indifferent to his new wife and child, Evgeniya
doesn’t look happy with a new man either. Life in dislike is harmful
a habit that is impossible to get rid of.

As for the final
film, then I cannot call it open. The viewer does not know what
happened to the boy. But mute shots of a cameraman showing a frozen
nature, leave no illusion. Stunning blue-gray cold footage
gloomy, “glassy” Moscow, landscape scenes incredibly accurately convey
the atmosphere of what is happening and immersed in the action so much that for
a few days after watching you can not get rid of the aching feeling of melancholy,
loneliness and hopelessness.

There are films
after watching which you cannot return to reality for a long time, experiencing
an acute desire to be alone with yourself and your thoughts. Andrey’s creation
Zvyagintseva is one of those. Strong, deep, scary.

Petrova Alina , F-61:

From the very first minutes, the film immerses you in
uncomfortable, “cold”, heavy atmosphere, which with each new shot
film more and more pulls you into the dark abyss of “dislike”, into which
one of the main characters of the film, 12-year-old Alyosha, whose parents
due to constant strife and conflicts, they completely forget about their own
child.Seeing on the screen how the boy cries excitedly during the next
clarifying the relationship of the parents, you feel how your heart pricks in pain and
pity for this unfortunate child. One day when parents are all
forgotten Alyosha again quarrel, he disappears without a trace …

Observing the behavior of the boy’s parents, I
tried to find at least some reasons to justify their so terrible and unfair
attitude towards him. Alyosha’s mother herself is an unloved child of her own
mothers, there is no connection between them, they are completely strangers and experience
to each other exclusively disrespect, hostility and sometimes even hatred.Zhenya
(the boy’s mother), whose heart is overflowing with suffering and childish grievances against the mother,
cannot give the necessary warmth and care to his child. However, we meet in
real life, there are millions of examples when many people with a “heavy background” in
the form of an unhappy childhood, cope with their psychological problems,
forgive their parents and build life without blaming anyone or looking for a reason
their own failures in a dysfunctional childhood. The heroes of the film “Dislike”, on the contrary,
accuse anyone but themselves.

Another Hero
film, Boris, Zhenya’s husband and Alexei’s father, is a completely amorphous
a disgusting person who does not behave like a man at all, he is not in
able to solve any problem and is ready to blame others for his troubles
of people. He is a coward who is afraid of his boss, therefore he is silent about
divorced, although she has long had a different family. In my opinion, his image is
the nastiest of all that is presented in the film.Terrifying scene when he’s in
at the end of the film, throws his child, who prevents him from watching TV, into
arena, deprives the viewer of at least some condescension to this “dad”.

In the film we
we see the indifference and anger that relatives show towards each other. On this
the background is especially striking the feeling of compassion, concern of employees
search and rescue squad, in which completely strangers apply huge
efforts trying to find Alyosha.The film seems to give hope that in
a cruel world in which hatred, cruelty, violence reigns (not in vain against the background
the events taking place in the film show the news, where they talk about the civil
the war that unfolded in eastern Ukraine), some people still have
something good and kind that does not allow the world to completely plunge into darkness and
“dislike”. In this film, the idea is clearly traced that this private
history concerns all of us. Zvyagintsev’s film makes you wonder if it’s all
so perfect in our relationships with parents, lovers, friends,
acquaintances.It may be worth giving more time and attention to those people who
are we surrounded? Perhaps we also have a kind of dislike?

Bataeva Katya , F-71:

Andrey’s Film
Zvyagintseva “Dislike” touches upon many problems of modern society, one
of which – a lack of understanding in the family. The mother does not love her son, Alyosha, because
her mother was clearly unreasonably strict with her and did not give her daughter due
attention. And that daughter wanted to run away from home as quickly as possible.And here’s the bottom line:
she early married Boris, whom she did not love. Surely he didn’t get it either
parental care and love: Boris’s parents died, his upbringing was
grandmother. The mother calls her son “a mistake.” Parents are oblivious
love for the son. After all, they themselves do not know what a loved one is. Finding no love in
family, Zhenya and Boris get divorced and begin to look for care and affection on the side,
completely forgetting about his son, remembering him only after he was gone. Zhenya goes to
a man who is clearly older than her.His daughter is busy with her own business; she doesn’t care
father. The father is subconsciously looking for someone he could take care of. And Zhenya, how
just looking for someone who could take care of her. Boris goes to a young girl,
who, it seems to me, wants to “run away from mom” as much as he
past companion. Each hero lives for his own pleasure, without remembering each about
friend. Despite the fact that for the first time after the boy’s disappearance, the heroes are clearly
worried and worried about him, after a year no one remembers him.Boris
just as dismissive of his son from his mistress, Zhenya continues
run away from your problems. Usually after accidents in people at least something
changes, immediately everything remains the same, as if their son had not disappeared, as if their
life hasn’t changed at all.

In this circuit
the loss of one link does not mean anything to “loveless families”. Zhenya is not
received care and love from her mother, could not give love to her
to kid. A person who did not receive affection and warmth from parents in childhood cannot
give them to your child.And to raise a normal child exclusively on
reproaches and abuse are impossible.

Kokryatskaya Daria , ZhL-71:

Film “Dislike”
very heavy, not everyone can watch and understand it. It’s clear from the start
already that nothing good will be there. Both the nature in this film and the music are very dark,

Boy out
from school, it seemed to me unhappy. He walked in his thoughts and dreams.IN
in most cases, these children are not doing well at home. And when the boy
comes home, and I see that his parents do not treat him very well. IN
In the course of the film, I understand why the boy is so unhappy and sad. How to be happy
if your parents are constantly fighting? And soon you will know that they are going
get divorced and want to get rid of you, that no one needs you.

In the film Andrey
Zvyagintsev shows the problem of families, the problem of parents and children, talks about
divorces.He shows in his film what can happen if you say
an unnecessary and unnecessary word. And you don’t even know if someone hears him or not. AND
what after that can be the consequences. It is these consequences that are shown in
the film “Dislike”. The boy, having heard so much, simply ran away from home. And more
never returned.

I guess
what pain the boy felt: after all, no child will like it if he
he will hear that his parents do not need him and they want to give him away.When a man and a woman get divorced
and create new families, this is a huge betrayal. How can you just take and
stop loving a person you loved very much? Maybe now I don’t
I understand, since I have not encountered most of the problems shown in this
film. But, to be honest, I do not want to understand this.

In this movie
between the spouses there is no understanding, respect and just any simple
relationships. Everything for them is based on negative and evil.But still, not everything to parents
no matter when Alyosha disappeared. They start looking, connect a search team. Somewhere
deep down they love their son. They just don’t admit it to the end.
do not understand.

When a boy
I was looking for a search group in the building that Alyosha’s friend told about, I had
some hope that the child will be found. I also had thoughts that he,
maybe already dead. I tried to drive away these thoughts and did not want it to be
it turned out.I watched this film with great interest and great emotion.
As if she herself was among the heroes of this film.

When the movie
began, to be honest, I didn’t really want to watch it. But then I am so
wanted to know what would happen next. I’ve been waiting every second that all the same
say what happened to the boy. But I never found out. Now in my
head different thoughts about the boy: “Where did he go after all? What happened to him?
Where is he now? Is he alive at all? ” It seems to me that after leaving home, Alyosha simply
went somewhere into the distance, and, possibly, came somewhere.Or is there something with him
happened, but we will not find out about it. We can only speculate.

Russia, but also the modern world as a whole. Indeed, indeed, almost every fifth
jumps out in marriage and gives birth to an unwanted child on the green brains, but what is the result? ..
How many families do you know where they think of high things? Of course not, everyone
immersed in work and routine.I think everyone understands that marriages from
unformed individuals end in divorce. These people do not have such
concepts as moral values. They change their partners, believing that
something will change, but in the end they only get the “awl on the soap” effect.

I don’t understand
why, but the picture did not make an impression …
Either the plot is too primitive, or everything was somehow played out … Perhaps the whole point is that I have not met
such parents who absolutely do not care about their child.Yes, I saw
indifference to children, but not indifference, at least, parents always
worried about whether the child is full and whether everything is in order. This film shows
a well-to-do family, people do not live in poverty. Parents “at
money ”are usually pretty spoiled children. If parents do not love their children,
then they try to replace the lack of feelings with material ones, “buy off the child”. To me,
grown up in an atmosphere of family love, it is very difficult to imagine that in life
such parents really exist, but I think that such a problem really exists,
moreover, it is gaining momentum more and more.After watching the movie comes
the realization that Russia has to reap a certain “generation of House-2”.

People who are not
they know how to love, they cannot be happy. Similar issues raised by Tolstoy in
“Anna Karenina” are rapidly gaining momentum: an idle life, low
moral values, irresponsibility. I would like to draw an analogy with Anna
Karenina, who, by and large, created problems for herself from
idleness. In Zvyagintsev’s film, the problem is essentially eternal, only now it has become
more embossed: after all, if in Tolstoy’s novel this concerned only one
parent, now this problem has become universal.

People do not share
only for the classes “rich and poor”, but also for those who want something
to do for the neighbor, and those who do not care. Like a fungus on a cold tile
life, a society of consumers has grown. People who are not exactly someone else’s child
to do good, they will not bother to notice their own. And if your own child is not
can you love, how can you give something to others and bring goodness into this world?

In the film
volunteers who are ready to selflessly help the community evoke respect.Sometimes there is a feeling that for them finding the lost child is more important than
for his parents. These people are trying to fulfill themselves and bring joy in life.
of people.

Miroshnichenko Yulia , F-61:

There are films in
which you know for sure that here I would add something, but here I would remove something, and
there are films in which such a balance reigns, and therefore it seems that it is better
it was simply impossible to stage a film.It is to the last type of films and
refers to the film by Andrei Petrovich Zvyagintsev “Nedubov”.

The film produced on me
very great impression. To be honest, this turned out to be the most impressive
picture for me. If I were told to describe the film “Dislike” with one
adjective, I would say: “Realism.” How true he is
real and vital. It’s no secret that families collapse, and sometimes in family
relations are born such chaos that sweeps away everything and everyone in its path.Hatred makes you not see everyone, even your own children.

Main characters
the film, Eugene and Boris, is a vivid example of “dirty relations” (more
I can even find a suitable adjective). Everything in their lives and relationships
has long since died. Died in the soul of such human qualities as
mutual respect, remembrance, patience and, most importantly, love. And this is the most
a terrible thing that could happen to two people who were once dear. In spite of
mutual dislike for each other, the heroes do not even try to behave more tolerantly,
it feels like their main task is to annoy each other, exhausting nerves
not only to my husband // to my wife, but also to myself.When Alyosha’s parents apply
to the volunteers and the coordinator of the search and rescue squad Alexey makes
the plan of tracing the boy, Zhenya and Boris, and then they cannot hide their relationship: husband
reproaches his wife, to which Zhenya reacts rudely, not hiding his emotions. Much more
I was amazed by the scene in the car when, upon Zhenya’s refusal to stop smoking, her husband
opens the window (despite the fact that it is winter outside) and makes it louder and louder
very heavy music. These so-called parents seem to want to harass each other
annoy each other.

The worst thing
that children suffer. In KLIK, during the discussion, the thought sounded that “if Zhenya is
childhood love was not given, then for this very reason she could not give it ”. I do not
I can agree with this idea. I know many stories when the girl was growing up
unloved in the family, and for her child she will do everything possible so that with him
it never happened. She will surround him with such care, affection and love,
that you would never think that she had no happiness in her childhood.Only myself
a person decides how to live and how to treat their own children. Zhenya
could not nurture the feeling of love in her soul, and now she suffers herself and
harasses her husband. And the husband himself is not far away.

In this movie
the theme of nature is also more important. The film begins in winter, and ends with a picture of winter.
This is a metaphor for the fact that nothing has changed: winter in the souls of the heroes and

In this movie
people are immersed in their own worries and in the satisfaction of these worries.And that’s all
erotic scenes clearly demonstrate this to us. Carnal pleasures for these people are much
more important than the fate of his son. And the child in the film is shown very little, and therefore not even
I can fully understand his character. But I certainly feel sorry for him.

But for me a boy
from the movie is not dead. Yes, although so many years have passed and Alyosha has not been found, I have not
I believe that he died. I hope he found himself a home and happily
brought up by another family. In the film, we were shown a model of a modern family, but
I know for sure that not all families are like that.I want to think that another, real family
took on the education of the unfortunate Alyoshka. This is where my love is probably manifested
to happy ends. And Boris remained a pitiful man, whom even
the loss of her son taught nothing. We see him take his own again
the little son is already from another marriage and throws it into the playpen, because the child
prevents Boris from watching TV. For Boris, life will pass by. And Zhenya
lives in a luxurious apartment, but this does not make her happy.At the end of the film she
running down the treadmill to nowhere. It seems to me that in this way she wants
run away from their problems, but marking time, because from an unhappy life
you will not run away.

Zvyagintsev’s Film
– a film about a modern Russian family. This film turned out to be difficult for me. But,
certainly, such films are needed. You have to watch such films and think: “No,
Thank you, I will never have such a discord in my family, I will not allow this. ”
Even though I knew about the problem of dislike in families, it was still tough.When
all this dirt is collected and taken to the stage, you want to close your eyes and
run away, as little Alyoshka did, who took the protective tape and
threw it on a tree. This
the tape is his inner voice, a sign of protest, which is so torn
from the inside.

Boykova Anastasia , ZhL-73:

After viewing
of the film “Dislike” by Andrey Zvyagintsev on CLICK I left with a load in my soul.I still
I thought for a long time: “And how many such families where dislike reigns?” Although the family is
difficult to name. Family is where each other is loved and respected, and in the film
there was only hatred and anger. Each hero is busy with his own life, none of them is
things that are in the soul of another. All the heroes are mired in their swamp called
life, everyone’s life is dirty and empty. I feel sorry for the boy in this movie, because
that he was innocent. It is not his fault that the soul of his parents is empty.The most touching moment for me was when the boy cried: then I thought,
that there is somewhere a child who is as bad as the little hero of this
film. And I felt uneasy. The whole film sounded inside me with one thought: “How
there, in the film, you can’t live like that. ” But, as the film’s ending showed, the heroes are not
learned from their mistakes, and therefore everything is repeated anew. All the time that I was walking
film, there was never a sun in it. That is, there was absolutely no hint
for changes for the better.The film is hopeless. The heroes of this film are not
they know how to love and are not able to be happy. The film shows how
a man can be worse than a beast. You hope that maybe it will work out in the end, but
it doesn’t.

This film leaves
you alone with your thoughts. You think that indifference lives in souls
all people. Walking down the street, not everyone will help a stranger in trouble. It is not right.
It should not be.

Storublev Alexey , ZhL-73:

to start talking about the film “Dislike”, I would like to note that I am big
admirer of Andrei Zvyagintsev’s creativity.In each of his films, starting with
“Returns” and ending with “Leviathan”, I found something for myself.

Film “Dislike”
I just want to praise. Excellent cinematography by Mikhail Krichman: interesting
transitions, stunning angles, shooting aesthetics. This is not the first joint
the work of Zvyagintsev and Krichman, and the joint handwriting of the creators is immediately noticeable. Same
I am attracted by the ability of Andrei Zvyagintsev to shoot a film, clearly dividing into black and
white, while the viewer decides for himself who is who.

This film is not
for all. Not everyone will enjoy watching what is happening on the screen. BUT
some representatives of modern society will not understand at all what
Zvyagintsev wanted to tell us with this film? And he wanted to say that in pursuit
behind success, money and fame, we begin to forget that love and family are the most
dear that a person has. A wonderful thought that throughout
the film remains in the viewer’s head. And this thought does not leave a person when you
leaving the auditorium.After watching this movie, you will no longer be
the same. You will not forget this “horror of life” that Zvyagintsev presents as everyday
phenomenon of our life.

I can’t
advise everyone to watch this film, but I believe that everyone will come to
my understanding of this film. After watching this movie, I really wanted to
hug your loved ones and say how much I love them.

Sivak Ekaterina , ZhL-73:

disappointment in life, hopelessness, “everyday life” … These are the words that convey my
condition after viewing this picture.

The movie begins
a long scene: showing a winter forest, a river, a gray sky. Peace. Silence and
silence. It ends with a similar scene. Indeed, the beginning of the path and
its end is always incredibly similar, unlike what we have to
to experience on the way: misunderstanding, mistrust, hatred, dislike.

Dislike … What
This? Lack of love? Cruelty, ruthlessness? Attempts to replace one
a loved one to another? Selfishness? Maybe so, but for the most part,
love is killed by indifference.It is indifference that is inherent in the main characters of the picture.
Zvyagintsev, Zhenya and Boris. They don’t care what their son does
twelve-year-old Alyosha. And one day the inner rejection of these parents comes
to the peak: they decide to divorce and send their son to an orphanage. Having learned this, Alyosha
escapes, and the circumstances of his life remain unrevealed throughout
film. Who did the boy run from? From mom or dad? From endless quarrels
reproaches and shouts? In my opinion, a person, and especially a vulnerable child,
able to love, feel and adopt other people’s emotions, simply cannot live in
dislike, cannot give without receiving.Maybe it’s no coincidence that Zvyagintsev and
claims that there is no difference in whether Alyosha is alive or dead, because the main
here is that even the most beautiful flower, living among the weeds all its life,
sooner or later it will become the same if it is not transplanted at the right time.

Separately want
note the extreme non-romanticism and even excessive realism, flowing
into a banal description of everyday life, which, in principle, is not typical of cinema,
who prefers to exaggerate and dramatize everything.For example, the absence
music in bed scenes clearly does not arouse empathy in the viewer accustomed to
to the aesthetic beauty of such scenes in most motion pictures.

I would like
advise those who have not seen it yet to watch this movie. Not to
enjoy the beauty of the frames, not to laugh at jokes, and even
not to think of the lofty and beautiful. All this is far from
“Dislike”. But you need to watch this film in order to follow the main advice
director: “The message of the picture is that after watching it, everyone wants
hug your loved one! ”

Malko Nikita , ZhL-72:

“Dislike” –
one of the failed films by Andrey Zvyagintsev.In general, the film is good: when you
you watch it, you immerse yourself in this little cinema world. But compared to his
past works, but with the same “Leviathan”, this film does not really stand out.

The film has
the original idea, but Zvyagintsev could not fully implement it. Zvyagintsev
should have revealed the boy’s feelings deeper. The director started well, but abruptly
cut short the description of Alyosha’s emotions. When the boy goes missing I have not experienced the strong
emotions, although there were bitterness and excitement in my soul for the boy.But in his story there is
some understatement, a little more, everything would become clear, but no. For me
this is the film’s only drawback. And so in the picture all the anger is deeply revealed
and the essence of man. When watching the movie, the first minutes I thought it was
Documentary film. The film is excellent, but unsuccessful for Andrey Zvyagintsev.

Kim Ruslan , ZhL-73:

After watching a movie
“Dislike” directed by Andrei Zvyagintsev, I was left with mixed feelings.Let’s talk
about the pros and cons of this film.

First, from
the advantages of this film are the excellent camera work.
Almost every frame of the film is chosen to heighten the feeling of burden.

Secondly, it is
actor play. Actors Maryana Spivak and Alexey Rozin played excellently.

the work of the search group is excellently shown.

Now the cons.
In my opinion, the main disadvantage of the film is the idea itself.Or rather, not an idea, but
how Andrey Zvyagintsev tried to show this idea. In this film, he wanted to
once again show the futility of being. In our time, general indifference reigns.
From the police, who are more busy with paperwork, to
mother of the main character. The only light ray in this piece is
volunteers; but they are shown as an exception.

the problem of the film, it seems to me, is the protractedness of the picture.All these
erotic scenes (taxi rides, toilet scenes, etc.) do not reveal
characters, but serve to stretch the picture. Perhaps Zvyagintsev just had
it’s a pity to throw out the beautiful shots that the cameraman filmed. Frames, of course,
beautiful, but they do not carry any meaning.

Overall, I am everything
I also think that the film “Dislike” is a good picture. Not the best for
Zvyagintsev. The same “Leviathan” tried to show the same thing, but in more
interesting form.But still I do not regret having watched the average film excellent
directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev.

Yakimenko Ivan , F-71:

Zvyagintsev’s Film
I categorically did not like “dislike”. I thought I’d take a look
an intellectual film, but just looked at the banal life once again
people who are full in this world and in this country.

Film script
“Dislike” leaves much to be desired.There are a lot of unnecessary scenes in the picture,
which do not affect anything. For example, a scene in a car when the hero was driving
work, as well as a scene in the toilet, which, in my opinion, is not appropriate. The stage
the fact that the boy overheard the parents’ conversation could be shown in a different way.

Characters in
the film – puppets that do not change in any way. They cannot be called heroes, they
I don’t want to empathize. But there are only good people in the film: the coordinator
searches for the boy and his team of volunteers.It’s more interesting to watch them than
the main characters.

Dialogues of these
characters are as empty as movie characters. Through dialogues, not actions
Zvyagintsev tries to reveal the characters, but never reaches his goal.

Throughout the film, I had only one question, and this question was: “Why?”.
Why should I know that the heroine goes to the toilet without closing the door, why should I
to know what is in her mobile phone, why should I know that a man eats potatoes for lunch
and vegetable salad, and all the time picking at my mouth, why should I know that they
buy chicken and broccoli, why does grandfather buy a bottle of soda in line and
two bags of juice, why should I know that the main man is late for work and not
says hello to anyone, why should I know about a 4-room apartment in Tushino for
obscene money and a Kia car? What for? The film does not give us an answer to this question.

In conclusion, I would like to say that the only
The “dislike” in the film that I saw is the “dislike” for the viewer. Unwritten
script, poor quality attention to detail, delusional dialogues. The film is not
makes you think, but just tries to show you how not to do it – and
in terms of life, and in terms of making movies.

Kirsanova Ksenia , F-61:

The film is very
liked it.From the very first minutes there was tension and many questions: “How
to talk about your child like that? What do you mean – “you don’t need a child”? ”

13 years old
a boy in a family where he is not loved. What a pity for him!

Film shows
our XXI century: a mother who thinks only of herself is constantly sitting in
Instagram; that mummy is nothing but “House-2” and a new hakhal,
nothing else interests. A father who is fixated on his work, on opinion
others, on his new passion, not knowing how to connect even two words, all the time
swears.Are these parents? Can they even be called by this word? They are
do not follow the upbringing of their son, they are never interested in how he is doing, how
his day goes by, what he does. You can recall the episode where the volunteer
asks the parents about the boy’s interests. The mother there answers with uncertainty
phrases: “Probably”, “In my opinion”, “It seems” … Father is mostly silent, by name
He does not call the child, but calls him a boy. What can I say, he didn’t even fit
to the child, Alyoshenka turned out to be an unnecessary thing with which they played and forgot.Want
tell about Zhenya’s speech when she complained to her lover about her son, called
his freak, not necessary to her … How disgusting! Where can she get love? Her
mother herself always kept in “iron grip”, the girl in childhood did not
gave love, now the adult aunt is acting out on her child. Yes and
the lover is not very fond of her. But how do events develop when
Alyoshenka is missing! Everyone starts to panic, fear for his fate.

The whole film lived in
stress.It seemed that he was about to be found. How much hope was that
the boy from the hospital turns out to be Alyosha. Past. I thought that in an abandoned building he
will be. Past again.

Excellent showed
the work of our police. It’s the same in reality! Volunteers are working for thanks,
they do not feel sorry for the strength or the time, and the police are “weak”, as always.

the film ends sadly. I could not hold back the tears at the end, when later
For years, a ribbon thrown by the boy remained on the tree.This
the ribbon is a small reminder of his once very small existence.
How much he had just ahead …

And his “parents”
life taught? No. Everything was forgotten like a bad dream. Zhenya continues the same
flipping through the “Vkontakte” tape. Her ex-husband has a new wife, a new one
child, but he still has the same: watching TV silently, without being distracted by
family members.

Very vital

Semenyakova Natasha , F-61:

When you read the abstract before viewing
film, then mentally prepare yourself for the worst, you know what this film will cause
negative emotions in you.When you mentally set yourself up and, it would seem,
perfectly prepared for everything, for any turn of events, you didn’t seem to
must be disappointed. But in the end, after watching the movie, you manage to
disappointment is much more powerful than he could have imagined. All sorts of negative
emotions cover you with your head, literally tear you apart.

I would like
to say right away that the main characters, the spouses, were simply disgusting to me. And if
in many films, towards the end, you clearly reconsider your attitude towards the characters,
then here there could be no question of such a thing for me.What they’ve been through is usually
breaks people, leaves a deep bleeding wound on the heart, induces
rethink your life, perhaps even completely change your worldview.
But these people … It seems that they simply didn’t take anything out of it. Maybe,
I’m too callous, but they didn’t make me feel sorry for them at all.
I only feel sorry for their son Alyosha: the child literally lived in hell for most of his
short life, was never loved and did not receive that parental care,
the warmth and tenderness that he was obliged to receive.

In this
there is no love for the dying cell of society, but in real life there are many such families.
In other such families, there is respect for each other, children are born desirable. But in
Zvyagintsev’s film husband and wife are disgusting to each other, they both are ready to refuse
your child. Honestly, no matter how cruel and dangerous it was, they should
I should have given it to Alyosha long ago. He could already have been sheltered by other kind people who
a family is really needed, it would be sheltered by people who love children and collect
take care of the child.Here the boy, having both parents, lived in hell in reality. At
a normal atmosphere in families does not even need words to feel love
parents. Here, in this “family”, the child could only feel the cold,
neglect, perhaps even self-loathing.

But I naively believed these tears of heroes, their
experiences, their desire to find a boy. I believed and hoped that he
will awaken at least something bright and good in them. Yes, those parents would hardly

their hearts.Belated maternal / paternal instincts possibly
awaken … But, of course, I was disappointed. What’s one, what’s the second stuck
in one phase of development and continued to be in it, and everyone was still
unhappy. What was the point in starting a new relationship at all if you were in it?
also unhappy? Having a child again that you don’t love, you get annoyed and
Throwing into the arena so as not to interfere with watching TV?

Not quite
I liked the light in which the law enforcement agencies were exposed, although,
of course, it is difficult to disagree with the fact that such egregious cases occur.But
against their background, volunteers looked very profitable, who are ready for free
look for the missing boy. And in this situation, the volunteers were even more
interested in finding a boy, more worried about him than the parents.
Probably, it was the volunteers, their difficult mission and their dedication who left
the most positive impression. All other characters, to varying degrees
(except for the missing boy) left a negative impression.

worth seeing at least once, because most of the plot concerns
life topics and moments, unfortunately, true.There are thousands of such cases, such
there are even more families, no less such an attitude to other people’s troubles. The movie makes
think about many things, makes us understand that our life is not so bad, we ourselves
parents are wonderful. This film has a heavy, oppressive atmosphere. I still
for several days I walked under the impression and could not move away from the film, mentally
discussing the issues raised in it.

Shilova Vasilina , F-61:

At first glance
it may seem that the film really tells about the divorce of Zhenya and Boris and
about what will be presented to them to decide – with whom their son, Alyosha, will stay.But the film is not about
this. Despite the storyline of the search for the missing boy, the film tells about
the fact that it is important to take care of each other, listen to your neighbor and love.

I am very
I liked the atmosphere in which events unfold. Incredible
landscapes, a successful combination of colors is captivating, it is worth watching a movie at least
in order to enjoy it. Quite a strong impression made on me
the last scene with a tree and a ribbon left on it once by Alyosha.This
the scene shows the audience that the memory of the boy will always live on. Open
the finale is thought-provoking. Surely it’s foolish to hope that years later, a boy
is still alive, that he started a new life somewhere in the distance, but I want to

Tridub Ksenia , F-61:

poisoned. Help! “- the only thought that drilled all of my mind
after what he saw. I am confused and do not understand anything at all. Zvyagintsev created
amazing, talented, but completely misanthropic movie. Until now
the feeling that I was fed to the bone with poison does not leave.

It all starts with
the woods. It’s cold outside. The kind of dying trees with branches that do not stretch up, but
powerlessly falling down.Not an empty landscape, but definitely a hint of the life of some
people infected with a dangerous virus of “dislike”.

As you know,
the theme of love is one of the leading in art. But this time Zvyagintsev decided
show her antithesis with all the nightmares and consequences.

revolves around a family going through a period of terrible indifference to each
friend in which: Boris (husband and father), who lost his parents early, did not
received from them love and an example of life; Zhenya (wife and mother), who received
dislike inherited from your mother; Alyosha (son) – 12-year-old going through
a boy whose feelings are still alive, but he is running out of strength to endure
experiences from his uselessness to the people closest to him, and therefore the boy
decides to disappear from such a world.

I do not know how to describe what
takes place between Boris and Zhenya. Dry restraint? They are so strong
hate each other, that no passion and romanticization in this conflict and
does not smell. They even swear listlessly, completely insensitively, with disgust.
to friend.

Despite a certain atmosphere of cold
hopelessness, the director gives us a little faith in the existence of warmth.
The stark contrast to the spouses is the search and rescue squad.Their orange
vests, like lights, stand out against a colorless background. In fact, their attitude
the loss of the boy only intensified my sadness: after all, completely strangers
react to the current situation much more “lively” than
own parents …

On the movie poster
depicts a woman covering her face with her hands. Her pose embodies rather
total, a state of despair, misunderstanding and fear. Watching “Dislike” was
extremely difficult. Sometimes, from overwhelming feelings, I terribly wanted to repeat the gesture with
posters, just not to see all these disgusting actions of the heroes, if only
convince yourself that this does not happen, that this is just a movie.I am not at all
I know if I can at least recommend it to someone for viewing …

Strong. Hurt.

Yakupova Madina , F-71

at the very beginning of the film, a modern family is presented who is trying to sell
apartment due to divorce. Showing the apartment to buyers, mother gives a slap on the head
to his son Alyosha, because he did not greet the adults.

cannot decide with whom to leave their son Alyosha, and Zhenya (mother) comes to this
to the opinion that Alyosha “likes it in the summer camp, he will like it in the boarding school”.Boris
(father) does not want to send his own son just because he will be “trampled”
from work, because at work you need family people. Alyosha, standing outside the door, hears
the whole scandal; with tears in his eyes, he realizes that no one needs him, that his
nobody will educate further. The next day, Alyosha’s mother at breakfast
calls him “kvolyom”, to which Alyosha takes offense and runs away from home. Immediately
the problem of dislike for one’s own child is being built. Alyosha does not consider himself
loved one and decides to leave home.

Alyosha’s parents remain officially married, and each has a relationship on
side. Boris lives with a pregnant Masha, and Zhenya has a rich lover Anton.
Zhenya, spending the night with Anton, is unaware that her son has left home.
Soon after numerous searches for Alyosha, the spouses go to the morgue for
identification of the corpse of an unknown boy. It turns out not him, Zhenya claims
that there should be a mole on the chest, that the hands, fingers, hair of that murdered
boys are not the same as those of Alyosha.Zhenya goes into hysterics, and she says that
I would never have given Alyosha to an orphanage.

2 years old boy still not found. The spouses live separately, Boris has a son,
to which he relates in the same way, without experiencing warm parental feelings, throwing
your child in the playpen, leaving him unattended. Zhenya lives in a luxurious
Anton’s apartment, feeling unhappy. At the very end of the film,
protective tape on the tree, when once Alyosha threw it on the way from school.

In my opinion
opinion, the idea of ​​this film is that after a long life together, the spouses are tired
apart, they saw no reason to live on, not loving each other. Generally in this
the film, you can find many problems, starting with social networks: society
obsessed with phones, people do not pay attention to what is happening

Yulia Zabelina , F-71:

In the film
“Dislike” Andrei Zvyagintsev, showing his family, raised a problem common to all mankind,
concerning the whole of our country in general.Revealing the characters of the actors, Zvyagintsev
the most shows the mentality of Russians and Russia in general.

difficulties grows into a universal problem. Why the news shows us
problems of Ukraine? Why focus on the fact that somewhere people live worse than
in our country? Everything is really simple: people in our country, as usual, do not
think to solve the problems of the Fatherland, everyone thinks only of themselves, people
are guided by calculation and do not often think about how they live.

Pay attention
that the main character blames everyone for her problems, but does not think,
that the main problem is in herself (this is how most Russians live). Zhenya wants
to be happy, but will the unhappiness of her own child bring her pleasure? She
does not think about it, after which he will definitely regret what happened, but he will
it’s already late.

The most
the emotional scene for me was the quarrel of the boy’s parents in the morgue.Immediately there is
question: “Why don’t modern parents think about their children?” After all, when
the child suffers the most from family problems. Alyosha became a victim of the conflict.

What is a family
now? The family has always been a shrine, but not now. Throughout the film, we
we see only ridicule of sacred values. At the moment, family ties are nothing
do not mean. Modern families live by calculation, each family member thinks only
about myself, and it upsets me.Boris and Zhenya hoped that with new partners
everything will be completely different, but I have absolutely no changes in their life
saw. All the same misunderstanding remained, all the same misfortune is present in their
lives, all the same dislike.

Now let’s talk
about “mom” in the film. In my opinion, Zhenya did not become a caring mother simply
because in childhood her mother did not give her these tender feelings. She didn’t see
examples of how to behave, and therefore now she has problems with her son.

Alyosha’s room
the farthest, it seems to be outside the apartment. This metaphorically testifies
about the distance of the son from his parents. The surrounding nature is more human than people: it
“Sends” hope to both the family and the search party. Zvyagintsev adds autumn and
spring in the episodes where they are looking for Alyosha, this brings the expectation of something good. In film
constant cyclicality of the seasons: actions begin in winter and end at
the same cold winter time. Due to this, the cold atmosphere in the family is felt.I liked how the director filmed nature.

Andrey’s film
I liked Zvyagintsev because I walked away from watching for a very long time. Movie
heavy, very emotional, I think it is even instructive to some extent, so
as shows the immorality and irresponsibility of people.

Director’s film
Andrey Zvyagintsev’s “Dislike”, like, in fact, all his other works,
has an acute social character.It covers the topic of parenting,
relations between parents and children, the topic of relationships in marriage, but the main and
the leading problem revealed by the director is the inability of the modern
a person to love and be happy. Director for a long time and to the smallest details
shows the viewer the life of the main characters so that everyone can feel the plot
and understand how the hero came to what he has in the present.

Zvyagintsev –
one of those who “denounced” the average Russian person.His heroes
films do not know how to love and have never really loved, the main character
Evgenia herself grew up in a dysfunctional family with one mother who did not
provided her daughter with the necessary support and understanding. Zhenya saw salvation in Boris,
moved to him, although she did not love him, like he did her, then in this dislike
their common child was born and grew up.

Heroes of this
the film, as they thought, found their new happiness, Boris even had a second
a child at the end of the film.But, as it turned out, the problem was not in the person, with
which they were together, but in themselves. It can be easily seen that both
the other is still unhappy. Boris pays no attention to his little one
the child and, in the end, takes him to the arena, so that he does not interfere with his watching
television. And Evgenia is still absolutely indifferent to her companion, their former
passion faded, and their relationship turned into a simple cohabitation.

who has not been given love since childhood and hardly ever somewhere else
he learns this, and therefore he will raise his children in the same way as he once did
he was raised by his parents, and his children, accordingly, will also be crippled
own children.And this dislike turns into a kind of vicious circle. I think,
that in modern society the concepts of morality and love are being lost more and more. After all
it should be laid down precisely in the family and from an early age. No wonder they say
that the main education is given by the family, and only then the person is brought up by society and
lays in it secondary qualities.

deservedly received such a high assessment for his work. The film turned out
hard enough to perceive.But, if at least a few people are given
the film adaptation made you think and rethink your life, which means that she
was not born in vain.


Never before
I have never watched films like the drama of Andrei Zvyagintsev “Dislike”.
I did not regret at all that I saw this film. Although the idea of ​​the film is not me
surprised, but the presentation itself was top notch.The acting is really
deserves praise. They managed to make me feel disgusted with them
abruptly switch to pity and empathy. I do not make any excuses for my actions
Eugenia and Boris, but I must admit that at the end of the film I really wanted to see
reuniting their family. Although I understood that these people did not deserve at all
such a gift of fate in the person of Alyosha’s little son, I wanted to give them a second

But not only
the play of adult actors amazed me.The scene where the unfortunate Alyosha sobbed,
choked with tears, touched me to the depths of my soul. It was a very powerful moment.
paintings that could not leave anyone indifferent to what was happening. Noiseless
children’s crying in a dark corridor … You will not hear it, but you will definitely feel it. IN
this very moment the viewer realizes that now he will be told one of the most
sad stories, in which there is no love and happiness, but only hate and

Despite the fact
that Zvyagintsev displayed only “dislike” in his film, I believe that this
the film is a must see for everyone.Pictures like this make us delve into
social problems of society, which we often forget or which are simply
ignore. I hope this movie makes the same impression on others.
people and will not leave them indifferent.


“Dislike” –
a film that evokes negative emotions. When you look, you try to see
something pure and light in the characters, but these attempts are in vain.

It was difficult for me
watch this movie. It seemed that everything happens not in the film, but in life. Was
an ordinary Russian family is shown, which was built on a “flight” marriage. You
look at scandals, fatigue, adventures with lovers, in a word, you
show everyday life, and you recognize yourself, your friends. When I was looking
on the parents who decide who the child will stay with, I was in pain for
this boy. After all, he was born by chance and did nothing to anyone
bad, and then the parents shove him off to each other.I was amazed by the parental
indifference, when for the whole day none of the parents even called him and did not
asked what he ate, how was he doing, if he was all right. Not surprising,
that the boy ran away. After the disappearance, my parents tried to find him, but, as I
it seems that the parents only pretended to be looking for a son. In this film, everyone is selfish.
Everyone wants to become happy and live without noticing anything around.

Relief I
experienced when I realized it was just a movie.The director succeeded
show a real picture of our life. This movie can’t leave anyone behind
indifferent. Now “Dislike” is one of my favorite films.

Arrangement of actors on stage at one point or another during shooting; one of the most important elements of directing.
As a means of figurative expression, the mise-en-scene in the drama theater developed with the birth and formation of the art of directing and scenography.In the era of the actor’s theater, actors’ exits to the stage and the stage setting were mostly functional. This is natural: the actor’s view “from the inside” of the performance, by definition, cannot develop and evaluate a complex imaginative solution that includes all the numerous and varied components of the stage action. It took a creative look “from outside” – the director and set designer – to understand that the emotional impact on the audience can be multiplied by staging effects – the play of light, musical and sound inclusions, the development of the image of the space of the performance, of which the mise-en-scene is undoubtedly a component …

In the development of mise-en-scenes, a complex dialectical interaction of form and content is manifested: the expression of the inner essence of the conflict, relationships, ideas, logic of stage action through its form, the external visual image of the performance. At the same time, the construction of accurate mise-en-scenes is equally important as when solving the so-called. mass scenes with the participation of a large number of characters and extras, and in the compositional development of “sparsely populated” episodes, including the presence of only one hero on the stage.

The construction of mise-en-scenes is closely related to the plastic development of images. So, when studying at the theater universities in the skill of a director, much attention is paid to the study of the laws of composition in the visual arts – especially in sculpture and painting. The creation of the so-called. sketches based on classical paintings and sculptural compositions are a very important aspect of the work of directing courses.

The style and genre nature of the performance are expressed in the nature of the construction of the mise-en-scène.So, for example, classical tragedy implies strict and monumental mise-en-scenes, vaudeville – light and mobile, everyday drama – realistic and convincing. However, the opposite, paradoxical directorial move is also possible: when the mise-en-scene, at first glance contradicting the general stylistic solution of the performance, transforms its sound into a different plane, enriching its image and giving additional volume. So, for example, in the long-standing tragic performance of the Vakhtangov Theater Anthony and Cleopatra, M. Ulyanov in the role of Anthony, committing suicide, strikingly awkwardly threw himself on the sword fixed in the floor of the stage.This scene was one of the most poignant in the play: its non-pathetic, even everyday mise-en-scene and plastic solution provided a very strong emotional counterpoint to perception.

The full-fledged co-authors in the development of mise-en-scenes are undoubtedly not only the director and actor, but also the artist of the performance – both the set designer and the author of the costumes. So, the cooperation of Y. Lyubimov with the artist D. Borovsky in the performances of the Taganka Theater led to the creation of many figurative (including mise-en-scene) solutions that were included in the golden fund of Russian theatrical practice (The dawns here are quiet, Hamlet, etc.).
