TV series Palm Sunday watch online for freeLet's go back in time with this amazing story. Before us is the seventies, full of mysteries and secrets. Further, the viewer will move forward twenty years.Thus, the authors of the script hint at the parallels of times when totalitarian power was replaced by new power, when the common man triumphed, when truth and justice were open and accessible to all. In the era of stagnation, art, oddly enough, did not stand still. The main creator of the cultural history of that time was ballet. At that time, only the most high-ranking guests attended ballet performances, including barons, kings, presidents, prime ministers and many, many others. Ballerinas were the embodiment of the beauty of their time. So beautiful, smart, and most importantly, they could become an adornment of any diplomatic reception. The only thing that hindered the development of this type of art was the power that did not want to wait, which did not want to know what kind of hard labor ballet was. Every person who went through ballet school knew that for a successful future you need to give all your best! The fight takes place not only on stage, but also behind the scenes. Thus, a kind of small hierarchy is created in the world of ballet.
I have always been attracted by the atmosphere of the eighties in films. There is something special in them that makes you want to watch such projects. I did not think that this series would turn out to be soulful and so sensual, sincere and interesting. We are told a story about the broken life of a man, the brightest man who gave everything to his beloved work. I am not a fan of Svetlana Ivanova's work, but she is a very good actress, it is worth admitting. This project once again proved to me that Svetlana turned out to be an amazing actress capable of big roles. All the scenes she played were just great! I am ready to watch them over and over again and enjoy everything that is shown to us on the screen! In general, I believe that an extremely successful series was selected for this project, capable of delighting and elevating! Actor Leonid Bichevin also turned out good, although many consider his role to be not the most successful of those that he played. Perhaps this is so, but we turn our attention primarily to the series itself! From the very first minutes I was seized by the feeling that I was watching not just a television project, but a real life epic. What amazing music here, what a tragedy is presented to us. Ballerina ... her life, her feelings and suffering. All this is touched upon in the best way possible than in many other similar series. The cruelty of real life without pretties is shown to us, and therefore it is difficult to watch, because you feel that all this presses not only on the heroine, but also on yourself. Probably, expecting a happy ending from such a series is stupid. Here it will end exactly the same as it began - tragically. The bright and kind path of a sweet girl will end in grief. I liked the way the actors played their roles. They are real good fellows, because they managed to convey the feelings and thoughts of their characters so that it all looks real, so that the viewer feels real life, and not the acting. Ekaterina Guseva coped well with the role of Bitch. And not just bitches, but a person who came out of hell itself. Sorry for this comparison. Her eyes, her gaze, her thoughts are full of envy, contempt, greed, anger and hypocrisy. I would like to praise Dmitry Dyuzhev for the game. This is probably the first film when I see this actor in the role of an ugly person. He surprises me, even very much. He has a kind appearance, but the actions of his character speak more about the character than his appearance. The actor played amazingly. I believed him, and I believed every word, every action and movement of him. But not everyone is as cruel and merciless as Margarita Polozkova and Arthur Mitin, no, there are conscientious ones, there are those who make mistakes, but are ready to eventually answer and tell the truth, even after 22 years, if only for the sake of restoring the honest name of that girl - Oksana Lepina, although this will no longer correct her fate. I was born already in the mid-nineties and I hardly understand what was happening in people's lives in those years.It was only thanks to this series that I began to understand something. I remember the stories of my relatives and friends that there was no justice at that time, there was no power at that time, there was nothing around at all. I could not even imagine that such a tragedy in human destiny could happen! And the series shows us not just the tragedy of one person - we see the tragedy of the whole society! This is something in my opinion. There are very, very few such projects today, and those that come out do not always show as much as this wonderful series showed. He impressed me very much! I would like to give the project nine out of ten! I liked Paul's struggle against this power, against these people, in whose hands everything is concentrated, because there are those who have good in them, who have a conscience and who are not indifferent to the truth, because people should know the truth. Well, dear viewers, I hope that after my review you have decided whether to watch the series or not. I wish you all a pleasant viewing!
I can probably be safely attributed to those critics who constantly "hayat" Russian serials and point out their shortcomings. This is not surprising, because very often, out of nothing to do, I was looking to watch and came across Russian serials shown on the TV channel "Russia" on Saturday evening. In these TV series, as a rule, there is no intrigue at all, but vice versa. Initially, you know the plot, everything will start very well. Further, of course, in an instant everything will become absolutely bad, and with this, the directors go overboard. With such situations, which are played out in TV shows, God forbid to face, and the heroes also take all the slaps of fate with their heads held high. Further, no matter how many episodes there are in the film, there is, of course, "happy end". Sounds like Indian melodrama, doesn't it? And the time when they fascinated me, naturally, "sunk into oblivion." Therefore, just when I decided to watch something worthwhile on TV, the question of whether it would be a Russian TV series somehow disappeared by itself. But I did not take into account that on the central, "First Channel", they show somewhat different melodramas. So I came across the series "Palm Sunday" and was incredibly surprised at the quality of this film. The only "minus" then was that this was not the first episode, but I would like to know about this story from the very beginning. And then I decided to find it on the Internet, especially since the film promised to be interesting and not long-playing, since there are only eight episodes in it. I must say right away that the series "Palm Sunday" turned my understanding of Russian cinema in the most positive direction. Let's talk a little about the plot. The plot covers a very long period of time - more than twenty years. I can't say that this is a novelty, but still I would classify it as a positive thing. Everything is shown quite realistically, that in the seventies, when history was just beginning, that in the nineties (about the nineties, I personally know everything, I grew up in them). I was always interested in the seventies and eighties, because it was quite an interesting time, not knowing which is very shameful. At that time, ballet was the main attraction for all "big shots" who came to our country. And in general, it was very fashionable to go to the ballet. It is, of course, very aesthetically beautiful. But personally, I cannot visit him. I can imagine what kind of work needs to be done to flutter on the stage like that and I feel sorry for those who take part in it. Then it was bad manners to be interested in the other side of this beautiful cultural event. It was then that the main character, who performed in the ballet, was slandered, and so seriously that she even ended up in prison. And at the same time, going to jail meant serving your due term. Then there were no options for amnesty.What was it like for a young girl to get there? This roughly meant that her life was over and her career too. But she still raised her daughter. And the daughter does not like the soul in her mother. In order to return her mother's good name, after almost twenty years, she decides to make an exposing film, where the whole truth about those distant events and the mistake that could cost her mother her life would be told. Agree, not bad, right? There is a time gap and a rather unusual profession for TV series, and at the same time, the whole world of Russian cinema is involved in the film, be it the older generation or novice artists. It was interesting to observe not only the characters familiar to the nineties, like "KGB player" Vasiliev, but also rather provocative ones. but let's go in order. In order to start her investigation from something, Oksana's daughter (namely, that was the name of the very unfortunate ballerina who was forced to serve not her own punishment) turned to a secret service official (well, in other words, the KGB, of course, but the secret service somehow sounds more pretentious , namely, to this ambiguous character I would like to attribute something with "fanfare and pathos") to Vasiliev. What seemed strange to me was that he handed over all the appearances and passwords to a stranger, from intimate life to the smallest everyday things. This is somewhat strange, because it is unlikely that their profession implies that someday it will be possible to reveal to someone the information that was once official. But apparently everything has its own explanation, because it would be difficult to reveal everything secret if such characters were not introduced. besides, he apparently still feels guilty, because he is in some way involved in the case for which the ballerina Oksana was imprisoned. Now that he is already in retirement, he can admit it. But this is with regard to those characters of this series who are quite understandable and characteristic. Was surprised by the appearance of a homosexual. Indeed, in the Soviet Union it was not just different minorities, "there was no sex." It was he who perpetrated intrigues on those who somehow guessed about his preferences. in general, the film has something to think about. You look and you just wonder how far people can go to cover themselves. They just "go over their heads". And then it is remembered that there is no animal more evil than man. It is noticeable that the creation of the film was approached with special care. in the film, to my great surprise, there are a lot of characters characteristic of that time and it looks like a finished product on a television screen, as a matter of course. But in fact, how much had to be studied and how to choose the actors so that the train called "Palm Sunday" rushed like a real locomotive towards its audience? It is worth noting that in the film, in principle, there are many historically accurate moments. For all that the story is fictional, I don't want to believe that it could be based on real drama. At the same time, I can say with some surprise that the budget of the film is not so big, and this is given the fact that a lot of famous actors played in it. However, the money spent did not affect the quality of the film in any way (well, of course, it did not have a negative effect). In general, as far as the plot is concerned, it seems to me that with all the democracy and the advertised freedom of speech, it is always very risky to touch on some political topics, because young people may not appreciate it, because they are not particularly interested in the past, but adults who grew up at that time , probably have their own point of view and not the fact that it will coincide with the one that is reflected in the film. and the very fact that a member of the Soviet Politburo was involved in the atrocities somewhat discouraged me. The very presentation prompted the idea that the authors were trying to convey to us a little more information, it is possible that this story is not such a fiction. In general, of course, a terrible time.I read somewhere on the reviews (and I had time for this, since I repeat that the film includes as many as eight episodes and in between viewing you still have a long time left for the "aftertaste" and thinking that you only what they could see on their television screens or computer monitors), that that time was shown too harsh - all these repressions and dissidents could not reflect what was really happening. Well, here I do not agree with those who spoke so, as far as I remember the lessons of Russian history, that's all. which we were shown very realistically. From this it becomes sad, because once you stumbled or God forbid, crossing someone's road you could lose everything. As I said, basically I liked everything in terms of the production and the main characters, but there are also controversial characters, like the heroine Rozanova Dunka. Something seems to me very doubtful in general the interpretation of such a "Dunka". I can't doubt the qualifications of the artist Irina Rozanova, because she starred in so many of my favorite films, such as "Dowry" (2011), "My dear man" (2011), "Lord officers" (2004). Her filmography can be listed for a very long time. But the image that she had to play here just amazed me, and I can't say that in a positive way. in general, it is strange to look at a woman, whose work you really respect, chatting on a "hair dryer" and living with the same criminal, which she herself is here. Maybe this is due, of course, to my personal non-perception of such changes by Rozanova, but the role of Oksana's cellmate seemed just awful and not impressive to me. I would not like the actress to repeat this bitter experience and ever play such a negative social type, after all, Irina Rozanova, it seems to me, is very good in female roles. And it is somehow difficult to call "Dunka" a woman. But there are also positive images and, in general, the director's findings. These are the positive aspects of the screen images of the same Dmitry Dyuzhev and Guseva. I am not prejudiced against these actors. They once starred together in such a "shot at the time" series "Brigade". I do not like this series, although the actors themselves played well in it, they shot it pretty well, it's not for nothing that they still love him is one of the most replicated both on images and on the smallest details, like soundtracks, TV series. But there was something in him that did not allow me to love him. Maybe this is a substitution of concepts that the creators did not want, but it turned out like this But this is so, a lyrical digression. I would like to separately say about Ekaterina Guseva. Here she plays very convincingly. Despite the fact that pairing with Dyuzhev Gusev was somewhat risky, because the audience could emerge from the "brigade" images, everything turned out much better than one can imagine. I can say that contrary to the opinions that it is difficult for Dyuzhev to get out of the image of a bandit nicknamed "Cosmos", he left this image a long time ago. and 2 Palm Sunday "generally approached very responsibly - here you will find the incomparable play of Oleg Basilashivili and the new star of Russian cinema, Vilkov. If it was necessary to choose a type for the image. then it came out just brilliantly. What is only Arthur's son (which was brilliantly performed by Dmitry Dyuzhev). The actor was chosen in this way, then he seems to be not a typical copy of Dyuzhev himself (which I really liked, because otherwise it would be just obvious that they were looking for a certain understudy, and so there is a similarity and it looks very realistic, as it could look exactly in real everyday life), but there is something in his features and gestures, which indicates their "cinematic relationship". There is no doubt about the actors' play, as I wrote above. They play just great. Therefore, it becomes sad that with such an acting potential, we actually shoot very few high-quality films. I would also like to note that the series is thought out to the smallest detail. Here, not only the images and their lives are presented to our attention, although this is the key direction of this film. Here you will be shown the atmosphere of Soviet times and even the backstage life of the same ballet. Personally, I really liked that the directors and the entire film crew did not ignore these details. Not without musical accompaniment. Sometimes I got the impression that I am also at the same time and if I go out on the street now, then the Soviet Union and everything connected with it will be waiting for me. This is very rare. I cannot say that this film can leave at least someone indifferent. After reading many reviews on him, I realized that you will either finally fall in love with him, or just pass by. Although to pass by such a film, you have to be completely uninterested in an egoist. Such, unfortunately, judging by the reviews, there are more and more. It is sad. After all, we cease to appreciate what we once had and exactly the time when our parents grew up and lived. My parents told me a lot and judging by the way everything is filmed in the film, those who had a hand in the creation of Palm Sunday also know firsthand about all the moments of that time. For all that I reacted very emotionally to this film, I did not reveal all the plot twists. I would like to pay special attention to the series finale. It turned out to be unexpected and very impressive. But I will not disclose it, so as not to spoil your impression when viewing it. Can I recommend the film "Palm Sunday" (mind you, the film, because despite the fact that this is a full-fledged series, it looks like a full-length feature film)? Yes, perhaps, I can say with full responsibility that the picture is very worthy and will dot the "and" throughout the plot. The picture makes you think about some things and about what to put in your life as priorities. I hope that you will also enjoy the Russian TV series "Palm Sunday". I didn’t watch it when it just came out, in two thousand and nine, but I’ve already fixed it and I don’t regret it a bit. And, of course, I also advise you to watch it. Thank you for your attention. I hope that my opinion will help you decide on the choice of a quality picture. And exactly the film that leaves the most pleasant memories and impressions. Happy viewing.
