In our collection — drama about the meaning of life, Thriller based on the novel by Dostoevsky, a fantasy about a dying town, anime with a wonderful soundtrack and black-and-white film adaptation of stories by Dovlatov.

"American beauty" (American Beauty)
  • Drama.
  • USA, 1999.
  • Duration: 122 min.

The movie is quite famous, you will find it in many lists of the best movies. The characters are many and each has its own reason not to be happy. But at the same time, this is not a sob story, and beautiful picture about the problems of ordinary people. Not to say that the film opens the eyes of: any special recipe on how to avoid mistakes in life, there is no. But on the other hand, the lack of doctrine, coupled with the very high quality of the film allow you to get great pleasure from watching even a second and third time.

The Double (The Double)
  • Thriller.
  • United Kingdom, 2013.
  • Duration: 93 min.

Very original and exciting interpretation of the novel by Dostoevsky. Very atmospheric movie. The acting is on top. Plus kind of appearance Jesse Eisenberg (Jesse Eisenberg and MIA Wasikowska (Mia Wasikowska) immediately catch the eye. From the scenery of a gloomy office, where everyone is running around with work, but it is absolutely unclear what it is, just goose bumps. And stunning camera work and sound kept in suspense throughout the entire film. Complex movie, worthy of attention.

"Northfork" (Northfork)
  • Fantasy.
  • USA, 2003.
  • Duration: 103 min.

A metaphorical film about the life and death, attachment to native places, God. But not in any deep sense the beauty of this film, namely the stunning imagery: breathtaking space, soft colors, surprising characters, and misplaced objects. The film creates the feeling of a dream that cannot be interpreted unambiguously, but longer want to hold in memory.

Paprika (Papurika)
  • Cartoon.
  • Japan, 2006.
  • Duration: 90 min.

The music makes this cartoon! The story is also good: detective, fascinating, and in addition pseudo-scientific. Even if you are a fan of anime, pay attention to this cartoon, which was even nominated for the Golden lion at the Venice film festival.

"The end of a great era"
  • Drama, Comedy.
  • Russia, 2015 year.
  • Duration: 98 min.

A cute film in which Stanislav Govorukhin was able to show alcoholism with humor, deceit and mediocrity — in-kind, and sex without vulgarity. The film is light, thin and filmed with taste.published
