Child 44, il falso thriller.

Child 44 è il nuovo film di Danile Espinoza, regista danese alla sua seconda fatica prodotta oltreoceano, e nientepopodimeno che da Ridley Schott. Il film ha una co-produzione degli Stati Uniti d’America, Regno Unito, Romania, Repubblica Ceca, e girato prevalentemente in Repubblica Ceca.
Tratto dal romanzo Il bambino numero 44 di Tom Rob Smith, edito in Italia da Sperling&Kupfer, è basato sulla storia vera del cosiddetto macellaio di Rostov, Andrej Romanovič Čikatilo, anche se il film è ambientato negli anni ’50, quindi diversi decenni prima dei reali fatti di Rostov, e anche la trama si discosta a volte dai fatti realmente accaduti.
La trama si snoda attraverso le vicende di Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), alto membro della polizia sovietica MBG, e della sua discesa agli inferi che comincia con il suo rifiuto di denunciare la moglie ( Noomi Rapace) come traditrice. Sullo sfondo dei ritrovamenti dei primi cadaveri di bambini, Leo perde la sua posizione e i suoi privilegi, viene esiliato da Mosca e mandato in un piccolo paese a vivere in una topaia. Ma è qui che avverrà l’incontro con un generale, Gary Oldman, e la scoperta di nuovi cadaveri di bambini disseminati lungo la ferrovia.
Comincia una indagine fuori dal protocollo, il regime di Stalin non può ammettere l’esistenza di un killer seriale, perchè ‘non ci sono omicidi in Paradiso’ cioè nella Russia Comunista.  Alla fine l’assassino è stanato e Leo riabilitato, i buoni (sembrano) vincere in questa cupa vicenda.

CHILD 44, un thriller?

Detta così, e come viene presentata, la storia sembra quella di un classico serial killer movie, solo girato nell’est europeo.
In realtà in questo senso il film è un pò un raggiro. C’è in effetti la storia dell’indagine sugli omicidi dei bambini, ma viene liquidata alla fine abbastanza alla svelta. Il vero focus di questo film è la situazione del popolo sovietico di quegli anni, è un film politico e storico, che ricorda le stragi per fame in Ucraina, la popolazione terrorizzata alla mercè degli ispettori del MBG, che senza preavviso potevano arrestare, torturare e uccidere ‘sospetti’ di tradimento. Un clima di terrore che viene espresso nel film con una regia diretta e da colori spenti.
In Russia il film non è stato proiettato perchè considerato inappropriato in quanto si tratta di «una distorsione storica dei fatti, che dipinge i
sovietici come una sottocategoria umana immorale, una massa di orchi
assetati di sangue, una massa di spiriti malvagi».

Se il taglio del film sia storicamente più o meno corretto è una questione che rimando a voi, io posso solo dirvi che la critica  non è stata tenera con questo film, che ha preso su Rotten Tomatos, il celebre sito di settore, solo 4,6 su 10 come parere della critica e 3,3 su 5 come opinione dell’audience.
Il film a me è piaciuto, l’ho trovato comunque un pò diverso dal solito e con quelche spunto di riflessione, quindi sì, ve lo consiglio.
Vi lascio con qualche immagine e con il trailer italiano.

  1. Be..se il film è girato in Rep.Ceca allora le location devono essere bellissime, tra le tante colpe del comunismo c'è stata quella imperdonabile (per il Capitalismo soprattutto!) di preservare molti territori, certo che ora la Germania si sta dando da fare per cementificare(industrializzare/sfruttare, per esempio a distanza di 6 anni ho visto molto cambiata la Slovacchia, e non in meglio…
    Non voglio dare giudizi riguardo un film che non ho visto, ma c’è sempre più una tendenza a voler paragonare a parole o coi fatti il comunismo al nazifascismo e questo non è giusto, e rimando sempre a un libro, per me illuminante, “I sommersi e i salvati”, spero che questo regista se lo sia letto…

    1. Thanks Aparna! I'm training one of my girls for a tournament next month and she ordered the black Fenom kimono yesterday. I'm excited to see it in person. Your reviews are wonderfully thorough, so thanks for sending me the link. I'm still rolling with my old blue Atama and don't plan on updating anytime soon, but a white gi may be in the future. Thanks for the info about CatFight gear. I may snag a pair of the vale tudo sh…strohave you tried any of their stuff?

  2. Friends help friends and sometimes acquaintances who they've only met in real life once. I like stopping here and reading what jumps out of your head and onto the blog. The world would be a little darker without you in it. Scott

  3. Du har så nydelig blogg!! Takk for alt du deler med oss :)Jeg lurer egentlig bare på hvor den mint(?)grønne hylla/skapet som står på kjøkkenet deres er fra? En sånn hadde passa perfekt hos oss :)Hilsen Ida (som imorgen feirer lillebrors 5mndrs dag. Jeg så den fine familien din, spente og forventningsfulle, da jeg satt med min lille nyfødte i armene på hotellet)

  4. Bonjour Martine,Malheureusement, si votre diagnostic est tout à fait vrai, les raisons de tout ça ne sont pas celles que vous croyez. Nana est tout à fait d’accord pour que sortent des DVD. Le problème vient des maisons de disques, qui sont de plus en plus frileuses. De plus, Nana est actuellement une des artistes qui vend beaucoup sur les sites internet qui vendent titre par titre, et ça sans le moindre frais de commercialisation…

  5. "CAN YOU DIG IT?"Another one I've seen a couple of times. I really like it, but some of the gangs were a little too specialized, but I guess it added to the movie. I heard there is remake in the works, or maybe it's already out. Not sure…When I saw "Dogma" I remember thinking that the hockey gangsters reminded me of the furies from "Warriors."I'm so happy when I actually can make a comment here!

  6. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will share this blog with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  7. wilson, that is sound advice, my friend, if kind of challenging to apply!Miguel, thanks – Thesis is beautiful isn’t it? The command to refocus is the one I need to keep on applying, over and over, and is the one I would probably most suggest to others too. Especially when coupled with powerful, inspiring purpose or intention. Thanks for your feedback – much appreciated

  8. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  9. “You’ve got to know you’re taking hits for a reason, and have the tolerance and endurance to bear it.”Knowing the reason makes it easier. Lately I have been taking a lot of hits at work, wondering if I’m any good, if I have a future in my field. I have lost view of “the reason” but the hits keep coming. Still, I have to endure because it’s my livelihood. (This is not “reason” enough. Merely earning a paycheck means moving backward.)My point is that sometimes we can’t know the reason, but yet must endure.

  11. La Siemens produce turbine che lavorano con vapore(o aria umida) proveniente da inceneritori (combustione di spazzatura più o meno separata dalla parte del percolato, e rafforzata conbruciatori di metano).Le temperature e il tasso di umidità dovrebberoessere simili. Il rendimento credo attorno al 25%.————————————————–GiancarloPS-> Ecco, la spazzatura… un bene inesauribile! (peccato che qualche ignorante ci butti batterie,lampade con il mercurio, vecchi pezzi di plasticain cloruro di vinile che diventa diossina, ecc.)

  12. Great goods from you, man. I??ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely great. I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you??re stating and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it wise. I can??t wait to read much more from you. This is actually a tremendous site.

  13. Alice-Jennifer Styles, October 29, 2012 at 7:45 pm I loved coming here last month! If you have a family coming in from out of town and have no idea where to take them for entertainment purposes, this is the place to go. it’s free, it’s fun, the sculptures are beautiful, and when mister Adickes is around, he’s very nice. Recommended!

  14. I don’t know if the council’s opposition will hold any weight with Caltrans and others or not, but at the very least it’s a strong symbolic gesture. I was especially pleased that one council member in particular, who was sitting on the fence, had the courage to vote in solidarity with the other members.

  15. was actually thinking of doing a charity event.So lets seperate the bids.1 for the tshirt and1. for the flashdrive.The catch is that every bid must be paid into the pot, so even if you loose the bid, you need to hand over the cash, that way the jackpot gets bigger and bigger and some lucky charity will benefit in the end. I will still need to sit down and pick a charity.What you think of that idea?I will flickr the prizes soon and link to them from here..

  16. I’m as guilty as anyone of busywork rather than engaging in the difficult and complex questions of life.It stems from a desire to simplify, and reduce the number of fronts I want to assault at one time, which in turn comes from the lack of patience and conviction with which I try to address these issues.Good post. Something I’ve got to be mindful of.

  17. What i do not understood is in reality how you are no longer really much more neatly-favored than you may be right now. You are very intelligent. You already know thus considerably in relation to this subject, made me in my opinion believe it from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men are not interested except it’s one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always deal with it up!

  18. Hi Bella, thanks for reading and for your insightful comment. Yes, I completely agree with you that there is likely the feeling of being the “first loser” when you win silver whereas the bronze medalist is Top 3! I can only imagine that many times the silver medalist saw the gold within reach — especially when they are heavily favored to win — so the disappointment is greater. I guess my bigger gripe is the way they handled it. I wish they could just buck up and THEN go back to the Olympic Village and sulk and cry!

  19. “If Barack had kept smoking weed and dropped out of Occidental College instead of transferring to Columbia, etc. etc. no one would be questioning his Negro credentials. He’d be another under employed Black man who enjoys pick up games and Kools.” I like that! :)And BTW, I agree with you about black being black. In my post I was merely echoing a common sentiment.

  20. Mary, What a great idea for Christmas night dinner. Your recipe is simple, flavorful and sounds delicious. I am sure your grandson has been a gift to all during this joyous season. Awesome recipe and many thanks for the idea.

  21. Brother Tim,That is an excellent question and yes I am trying to dig that out a bit.Personally, I believe the Apostle Paul by his very actions and encouragement partook of the Lord’s table in many places. He may have had a “portable” membership card. :)My take on the Apostle and his friends (others in ministry with him) is that they are commanded to partake of the Lord’s table and it is a privilege to do so as the church gathers (Acts 20).Blessings,Chris

  22. É sempre engraçado ver os mentecaptos espumarem de raiva! Queixam-se de tudo, até do facto de a Académica ter lutado até à exaustão! Eu sei que vocês estão habituados a outras situações menos claras, como o vosso reizinho eusébio que afirmou alto e bom som, que pura e simplesmente não jogou frente ao banfica quando estava ao serviço do Beira-Mar! É natural que esse seja o vosso símbolo! INNNNNCHEMMMMMMMM!!!!

  23. Also, don’t forget about analyzing the competitiveness of your keyword space, which in turn allows you to use other SEO tools to figure out what your opponents are doing. There are simple tools out there (Micro Niche Finder, Market Samurai, etc) that give you a huge heads-up in this regard, particularly against Davey Domainer who’s using the G Keyword tool and campaign cost price to try and ‘guess’ what he’s up against. Against those people, I could outrank them for “Credit Cards” using LindsayLohanNipSlip.cc as my domain platform.

  24. patético mesmo foi o Patriota desembolsando "10 reau" pra compensar a poluição causada pela queima de combustível do avião que o levou ate o Rio…essa gente não tem noção do ridículo…a coisa esta ficando absolutamente fora de controle "no que se refere*" a ridicularia, patifaria e patetice…

  25. توی بروکسل هست. اگه می‌پرسی کجای بروکسل شرمنده می‌شم چون واقعا نمی‌دانم. از بس لوران منو از توی کوچه و پس کوچه چرخاند که مطمئن نیستم کجای شهر بودیم. البته عشق به مفهوم عام اون. عشق به انسان، عشق به علم، عشق به اکتشاف، عشق به آینده و …

  26. Mamma sier:Trenger du noen varme klaer? F.eks. litt ull? Det tar jo litt tid för jeg klarer aa faa sent av gaarde ting i.o.m. at jeg hele tiden kommer paa ting du kunne trenge eller som er koselig aa dytte nedi. Jeg er forresten kjempefornöyd med at du tar kjempeordene seriöst, staa paa! Knusekos fra Köln ;-*

  27. that Mussina confounded everybody with his decision. That’s probably true, unless you actually read anything about it before today: The beat writers were saying he would retire, the Yankees were saying he would retire, and even Moose was saying near the end of the year that he would probably retire. If this announcement confounds you, you’re lost. But such is the state of the afternoon show on WFAN, where facts shall not be allowed to stand in the way of the host.

  28. Thank you for sharing superb informations. Your site is so cool. I am impressed by the details that you have on this website. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this web page, will come back for more articles. You, my friend, ROCK! I found just the info I already searched everywhere and just could not come across. What an ideal site.

  29. Hej du fina goa..! Tack för dina ord om koliken och Lillen. det är inget kul, nej. Men nu har vi börjat ge honom lite fänkålste, och det verkar hjälpa en del. får se på några dagar..och hålla nära så klart..läänge :)Ja, man borde verkligen inte klaga på något så illa som det är på många andra håll..Många kramar Lycke

  30. Thanks, Julia , for the inspiration! Your image is a delight for me to view. It is cold here in Wisconsin with snow on the ground and your image is warming!!!Love how you put colors and prints together. It encourages me to venture out of the box with my combinations too! Keep the ideas coming and brightening my cold WI. days!Susan
