Devoted to all lovers of cinema!!!

Coming Soon!!!!! The Kazakhstani project “Racketeer” (Рэкетир)

moviepicture6.jpgOn the 8th of November will be the premier of Kazakhstani film called “Racketeer”.                                               kaz_129_46.jpg

The producer of the project is Akhan Sataev. He is not so popular, because before the film, he was the shooter of only advertising videos. The budget is not so big, only 800.000$, but creators of the film have great hopes on this project. They are planning to show this film in all cinemas of Kazakhstan, Almaty is not exception!!! Also, in plans was to screen this film in Russia and to produce it on DVD disks on Kazakh and Russian languages. And one of the interesting things is that the soundtrack to the film is done by the young, but popular group “Métis”. The song is called “Bez sna”. Moreover, in the film you can observe one of the popular Russian actors- Vladimir Vdovichenkov (“Paragraph 78”, “Bummer 1”, and “Bummer 2”).So, are you already interested in it???? And want to know what about this film???

The genre of the “Racketeer”, as you have guessed from the name, is criminal drama. The story is about life of young man, whose name is Sayan. He is a boxer that hoping with the help of force and fists come to the better life!!! For some times this way is very good and progressive, but what will be then??? As we know, for all there is its price and we should pay for our mistakes. So…. if you want to know what will be with the main hero at the end, go to the cinema on 8th of November!!!! Will be waiting for your recessions!!!!

Eventually I watched this movie! As I expected its content seemed for me very empty but at the same time I liked Mongol from visual point of view. S.Bodrov made great decorations and battle scenes. Also I enjoyed soundtracks. It suits each episode in very nice way.

What about content I didn’t like character of Chingiskhan because he was shown as too humane and fair person. He was ruler, conqueror and, I suppose , must be very cruel and had few moral principles.

Nevertheless, I would recommend all to watch this movie because such big projects are very rare fo Kazakhstani our film industry.

Do you want to know more information about “Mongol” film???? Go here

542694.gif542694.gif542694.gifI have seen this film, and to be honestly I was dissapointed after watching it! “Why?”,- you will ask. As we all  know, PR of the film “Mongol” was amazing!!! Almost everyone was speaking about it, everyone was waiting for it! And I was not an exclusion! But as for me, I was waiting for something more effective, more exciting, because the slogan was “Soon the whole world will shudder from the name of Genghis Khan!!!”. It sounds very gripping and fascinating, really??? But the story was peacefull, without any terrible fights, without his historic gains. It recounted the early life of Genghis Khan who was a slave before going on to conquer half the world, also about his love and faithful wife Borte. In my point of view the audience was not waiting for this.

But i liked how “Mongol” was shooted. All actors played well, costumes were great, traditions of mongols were completely obeyed. The budget of the film comes to 15 million euro!!! Also I am happy to know that it is a major international co-production with the participation of Russia, Germany, Kazakhstan and the USA. Finally it was partly shooted in Kazakhstan. And if we take professional side of the film, we can see that Sergei Bodrov made him good, really good. The film’s editor is Zach Staenberg, the winner of an Oscar for “The Matrix”, can you believe???

So, it was my opinion, but how many people, as many opinions!!! look it, if you want to know more about history, about traditions of Asian people and about Genghis Khan’s early life!
