Review: Film fans in my opinion can be divided into three categories: glutton, consumers and connoisseurs. Glutton – as people who can not stop in time and limit your diet, “eat”, that is watching everything from TV series, soap operas to category B horror movies and movies for adults. The main thing for them – look, and that – no matter. The second category – eaters. These people are more legible first, but the “American Pie,” “Invasion of the Spider” and “Van Wilder 3” for them, too, and the food is decent. Gourmets same – those film enthusiasts who are interested in the composition of the food (the plot, details, costumes, historical facts) and chefs (creators: directors, actors, writers, composers, etc.) Foodies enjoy the process of viewing, savor every minute of screen time able to distinguish all the flavors and subtle sense of “flavor” and “aftertaste” film product. Remember the rat Remy from “Ratatouille” (2007)? Perhaps I am wrong if I say that the film “Beautiful Monster” Karim Hussein of gourmet food category. It is so ambiguous, full of contradictions and moments “on the edge” that it could be considered a complicated dish. Do not be surprised if the majority feels it is too bland or cloying and with displeasure will push the plate. But this movie should be “is” without haste, chewing thoroughly, because it is not created with the intent to “feed” the viewer, but rather to “give it a try.” And as tasty or not, let him decide.
To me, the film Beautiful Beast is saturated even taste. Static action and some amorphous characters are deceptive, is only to peer into the characters and you can see a trend that just sparks of eyes will fall.
So which of the three, is a “great beast”? At first glance it seems that this is Isabelle-Marie (Caroline Davernas), consumed by a burning jealousy and envy of the mother and brother. The girl is definitely sick, and her sly, crooked smile and a look narrowed eyes testifying to the facts of insanity. Just because a mother and daughter, not better: so conspicuous pamper and caress her son in front of Isabelle-Marie least cruel. Beautiful but fading Louise (Carole Laure) is clearly not maternal eyes looking at her son. Carole Laure herself somehow reminded me of Anne Parillaud (“Nikita”, 1990). And poor Patrice (Marc-André Grondin)! Whether autistic, or an idiot, retardation or even blissful. But do not kill minions blessed mother of the sons of jealousy and love, they all still love, and friends and foes. By the way, judging from the outside, actor Marc-Andre Grondin might be the brother Franka Potente and Gaspard Ulliel. With the latter they are almost twins: the obvious similarities in appearance, the same height and age, the French and English-speaking. They are said to «cast in the same mold». And both are endowed with acting talent in abundance. By the way, you can easily solve the problem of their possible professional rivalry, is (in the opinion of the Hive) just put them in one film
