Hello, I hope you laughed with the last film because today I will talk about a good movie that has a little of everything but has nothing engaraçado: thrilling combat scenes, socio-political and philosophical questions, drama and romance.

"Defiance" director Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond and The Last Samurai) is a war drama set in Belarus during World War II. Tells a real interesting story with beautiful photography and a combination of stunts and convincing performances.

Tuvia ( Daniel Craig ), Zus (Liev Schreiber-X-Men Origins) and Asael ( Jamie Bell - Billy Elliot) are the Bielski brothers. Jewish survivors of an attack that killed his parents on the farm where they lived. The brothers take refuge in the forest and began living in the area, a place that starts to receive each day, more and more survivors becoming a center of resistance to the German army and matter of honor for the Führer. The desire to survive generates two behaviors:. Organization in the community with their natural conflicts exacerbated by the shortage, and the desire to react The film resembles in some respects, and Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds Lord of the Flies because it shows characters who refuse to be victims and to show the difficulty of life in society without a strong arm on command.

The film also shows a second aspect of the war that is rarely shown by Hollywood, the overwhelming participation of Russia to the Allied victory is with traditional battalions, is fighting with the partisans guerrillas.

In war man reveals its limits and all the nuances of feelings are exacerbated.

Good movie to learn, reflect and have fun!
