My favourite film
It’s not an easy thing to choose one favourite film from a wide range of films. Once I mentioned that I like the historical genre. And I would like to tell you about ‘Brave Heart’ starring Mel Gibson.
I believe that many of you have already watched this film. It was shot in 1995 and it’s a real masterpiece from different points of view up to now. It was directed by Mel Gibson himself. When I watch a film where its director is among the cast, I’m always impressed, because it’s much more difficult to shoot a film than to simply be an actor. But Mel Gibson coped with his task flawlessly.
It’s an epic film. Simply an epic one. It has two interconnected storylines – the first is love between William Wallace and a young girl and the second comes as a consequence of the first – it’s fight for freedom.
The Scots had always been eager to be independent, but the English Government and the Crown had its interest in the northern part of the British Isles. And William Wallace was the first warrior who lead his people and initiated the national resistance, having revealed the inner striving of his people for freedom and independence.
Originally he wanted to lead a quiet life, but the guards of an English lord killed his wife and William had to follow a new road…
It’s a sad film. But it’s so masterly done that you watch it from beginning to end without looking at your watch.
The people of Scotland remember their national hero even today. And they still want to be independent. And they may get it in the nearest future.
‘Brave Heart’ is not a film to watch once. I’m sure that you’ll see it several times. And every time I watch it, I find something new. The music is really beautiful. The bagpipe is a very special musical instrument, it’s charming and mesmerizing. Its sound goes deep into the soul, and the bagpiper himself seems to play not his instrument only, but some inner strings of your heart. The music is so
peaceful. And before watching the film, listen to its OST* first, listen to it several times until you come to understand the mood of the composer…
There’s everything in this film that the best story should possess: love, courage, betrayal. This film was shot in the best traditions of cinematography. There is no doubt, that people will remember and watch this film in the future. Just watch it yourself.
