Hello, I hope you laughed with the last film because today I will talk about a good movie that has a bit of everything but it has nothing to engaraçado: electrifying 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 true story very interesting with beautiful photography and a combination of action and convincing performances of scenes.
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 going to live in the forest region, a place that starts to receive every day, more and more survivors becoming a pole of resistance to the German army and matter of honor for the Führer. The desire to survive generates two behaviors:. The organization in community with its natural conflicts exacerbated by the shortage, and the will to react The film resembles in some respects, Inglourious Basterds Tarantino and Lord of the Flies it shows characters who refuse to be victims and show the difficulty of life in society without a strong arm in charge.
The film also shows a part of the second war that is hardly shown by Hollywood, the overwhelming participation of Russia to the Allied victory is with traditional battalions, is fighting with the partisans guerrillas.
In war the man reveals its limits and all the nuances of feelings are exacerbated.
Good movie to learn, reflect and have fun!
