Movies about real events: where is the line between life and fiction

Фильмы о реальных событиях: где грань между жизнью и выдумкой

Sometimes you watch a movie and understand everything in life: the history and the characters come to life, and a sense of belonging to what is happening does not leave even for a minute. This is especially true of military ribbons – they are sneaking to shiver and penetrate into the soul of each spectator. When you hear the phrase “removed based on real events”, which impressed even stronger and fully believe the Director. Does this mean that the war films to examine the history, where the line between reality and directing fiction – versed “MIR 24”.

They claim historical accuracy and force to hold back the lump in his throat. For more than 70 years, the audience watching war movies. Just last year the wide screens came out about 10 tapes about the events of the great Patriotic war. Increasingly Directors are committed to take the plot is the real story. The feat of the Soviet sniper Lyudmila Pavlichenko, for example, formed the basis for the movie “Battle for Sevastopol”. It has destroyed 309 Nazi soldiers. The Americans nicknamed her “lady death,” and Director Sergei Mokritsky decided to show what it means to be a woman in the war.

For example, a scary scene where Pavlichenko buried in the ground after the explosion, filmed without doubles. Actress Yulia Peresild in this moment felt real fear, says the Director. But it is these moments and helped to make the painting accurate. The creators have studied a huge number of archival documents, in the scenario laid memories of Lyudmila Pavlichenko. But there was something that had to miss out.

“Some absolutely true to the situation I was afraid to play in a movie. She Pavlichenko, for example, describes such a case. In the morning when there was light, she got into position on the hill and saw the Germans down, simply live targets. But it is not something to cling to. Suddenly, she noticed two dead Germans. She took them, put heads to each other and went after them with a rifle. All day, these young men looked at her with dead eyes. I have tears welling. I as the Director have to watch, a fact to take, and what not – there is a internal filter,” says the Director.

Mokritsky now preparing a new movie – “First Oscar” on the front-line operators. Military ribbons, by the way, are often caught in the crosshairs of critics. Historians looking for deviations from the truth, as, for example, in the film “28 Panfilov”. The myth, the legend – has been called the feat of the red army in the battle of Moscow. Soldiers were not 28, and events are nothing more than “fiction”. But Director Andrey Shalopa than once – the film is dedicated to the actual deed, and of such a dispute is not accepted even in the movie. The reality of the events described in this film, is difficult to dispute.

“In the sky night witches” was directed by Yevgeniya Zhigulenko, which itself was part of the wing. The heroism of Soviet pilots in the ribbon, 1981 worthy books. Critics believe: that the films made in the postwar period, the most plausible.

“The films are shot Bykov “go To fight some old people”, “They fought for the Motherland” – picture taken with veterans, taken by people who experienced it, they knew how it all happened, the front wound did not heal. The fact that today is served with sauce of real events – this is the legend,” – said the film critic Aleksandr Golubchikov.

Filmmakers are increasingly turning to computer graphics, and in the 20th century it was decided to shoot on location. Sergei Bondarchuk in the film “They fought for the Motherland” considered this factor most important. During the filming near modern Volgograd group have repeatedly encountered the mines. The filmmakers didn’t have to dig craters from shells – they left after fighting in WWII. Actor Yuri Nikulin, who played the ordinary Nekrasov, fought near Leningrad and was awarded several medals.

The theme of the Second world war are often treated in Hollywood. Steven Spielberg refused the fee for a historical drama about the Holocaust “Schindler’s List”. Roman Polanski film “the Pianist” told in the language of cinema autobiography of a musician Wladyslaw szpilman. From the screens to the audience of war movies remind you not to forget the feats of their ancestors. As long as memory stays alive and they.
