His father, he finds it, but that's to return home after a brief and awkward conversation, not in a hurry. Especially that very soon life makes him a loafer by Max (Joe Anderson, a name taken, apparently, from a song about a silver hammer Maxwell), to whom Jude quickly becomes a true friend. At the Max has a sister Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood, the song is clear – "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"). Lucy is clean, open around the world girl, stung by those injustices. Jude, who arrived with Max to visit them for Thanksgiving and saw her just that. The girl he likes, but Lucy is waiting for her boyfriend after school to go to war, and therefore with a friend Jude went to New York where he engaged in painting. They join in company of musicians Sadie and Jo-Jo (well, sooo like Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix) and living in their apartment odd but charming girl Prudence ("Dear Prudence"). And later, Lucy joins them: her fiance killed in the war and she begins to suffocate in a polite bourgeois town, where prefer not to delve into issues of war and death.
Flow time, the heroes are looking for you. Max – in an attempt to forget about the terrible war, where he still hit and where he was severely wounded, Lucy – in the radical antiwar movement, and Jude, and musicians – in the works. Their paths diverge, but life – a piece unpredictable. And all this for the song "Beatles"! Frankly, translation and subtitles in this the film is not so important, even without knowing the language perfectly possible to understand the meaning of such a convex, live acting, such understandable without translation songs and such a bright visuals. Picture perfect reflection of the internal state of the characters: clean and shining in the scenes with the young Lucy and overcast – with an adult. Dark colors at home contrasted with Judah night city lights during his acquaintances and drinking with Max. Bright and phantasmagorical special effects and colors (where g without them, but how they are relevant and how to measure used!) in a circus and a scary scene at the recruiting office with Max. We must, we must look, and sure as that nothing prevented a complete visual and Of course, audio pleasure.
After all, how to play the song – it's something! For one interpretation of a famous "Let it be" should be given government awards. (Incidentally, the film was nominated for an Oscar nomination in the best … costumes – and he was not given.) And there are simply destructive and shocking (my favorite!) "I want you." And all the actors on the already established tradition, performing their own songs! In general, the easiest way to reward yourself movie. Bright, music, funny, nostalgic, serious, philosophical and social time. And, and, most importantly: Tape loved Sir Paul McCartney and John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono. In my opinion, a good recommendation! Donate his friends and his two o'clock a bright, beautiful and intelligent pleasure. Listen to the wonderful song "The Beatles", admire unusual arrangements and interesting visual solution of the usual things. And as long as possible after view, do not forget that all you need in life – this is love!
