Great TV series! An unexpectedly high-quality and amazing episodic film turned out, despite a rather modest budget and the lack of stars in the frame. The most important thing here is that the authors are not afraid to show the psychology of real life. It's great that a war film is not based on patriotism alone, but tries to penetrate into the depths of a person's soul. The authors were able to show everything that is in the hearts of people who participated in hostilities. It's amazing that the writers show the Germans as motley - among them there are worthy people who deserve respect! We are witnessing situations when even good people become hostages of a situation where there is no right to choose. Despite the fact that there are outright scum among the Germans, they are presented quite realistically in the film. We are watching their ordinary life. Some representatives of the German army are much better than those Russians who knocked on their own. On the forums, I've seen a lot of reviews on the topic of "good and bad" in this series. It seems to me that the show is good precisely because the viewer decides for himself who is a worthy person, and who is the one who should not be trusted with his life. It is these series that make you think about a lot. It is these series that do not leave their viewers indifferent. It seems to me that this kind of films should be watched by schoolchildren. By the way, to all those who like "Translator" I would advise you to watch "Our Mothers, Our Fathers". It's a German film, but it's shot like that ... I don't even have words ... However, in my opinion, the last episode smears the whole impression of the film. More precisely, his last five minutes.It is not clear who changed the screenwriter, because in a five-minute serious deep series appeared a real unkillable Rambo, who turned all the action on the screen into a second-rate action movie. I don’t want to be a spoiler, but I’ll still turn my attention to some points of the final episode. Acid - well, the gun didn't fire right away - great, but that's why the heroes get into the hands of a machine gun! ?? As if someone had replaced the scriptwriter. I remembered the cartoon "Three from Prostokvashino", when Matroskin and Sharik were finishing a letter after Uncle Fyodor. You will see - you will understand everything. I would like to say that we have a very high-quality series without a single flaw, but the ending does not allow me to do this. If you evaluate the film on a ten-point system, then you can put a solid eight. Everything is very good until the last episode.
There lived a modest little man who did not interfere with anyone, taught chemistry at school, was expecting a child from his beloved wife, with whom the mother-in-law had a frankly bad relationship. The little man loved Charlie Chaplin, which he repeatedly proved with his miniatures of him right in the classroom. So, he believed, you can improve the knowledge of schoolchildren. However, the happy life ends when an explosion occurs and German soldiers burst into the classroom. Unexpected turn! I immediately remember the couplet of a famous Soviet poet about the "GKChP": "When you come home from a party, open the door, and at home - tanks!" Yes, a real shock for an ordinary person who does not expect trouble. German troops occupied Taganrog without encountering resistance from the Red Army. It happened on October 17, 1941. However, our chemist is still a hero. Even after two blows in the stomach from the Germans, he managed to take the children out of the school and took out a high-ranking SD officer. Yes, this is the first human feat that our hero performed at the front. However, the stupid and frightened students immediately recorded their savior as traitors, putting an end to the quiet life of a chemistry teacher. But the fascist understood who he was dealing with. I was not at a loss - I wanted to check out the teacher better, I even made an offer to him, which could not be refused. Now our hero must be an interpreter in the SD. Immediately I will say that everything that happens next shows the whole baseness and vile essence of the German troops. The psychological pressure and drama are so enormous that it is impossible to tear yourself away from viewing, it is impossible to stop watching how a cat and a mouse live in the same cage. The cat is very bored - it can be seen, but the mouse is not so stupid as to lean out and give the enemy a chance. Moreover, the mouse still continues to radiate vital energy, remembering about his beloved Charlie Chaplin. The cat is also cunning - it has already calculated all possible mouse moves long ago. It is a great pleasure for the mustachioed to observe how a defenseless animal in the role of a translator tries to turn around in order to become something more, supposedly for the Third Reich. But here you need to make a scenario digression. Could it be that the SD security service so easily entrusted the translation to a single person taken prisoner. And of all Germans, no one really knows Russian! And so the local teacher is engaged in translations. I wonder if anyone thinks that the main character might translate inaccurately? Yes, I must admit that, by and large, our cat outplayed the mouse. But he underestimated, for which he paid! And the mouse did not have enough thought (probably due to a state of passion) at the end of the film to fire a machine gun fire at the closet (it just suggested itself !!!). The most important question: who is to blame? Whom to judge? What could a simple chemistry teacher do? It seems to me that he was able to do his best to protect loved ones. It is impossible to condemn what the local Charlie Chaplin did, because we ourselves would hardly have done otherwise. If you do a trial, then you want, first of all, to act as a lawyer for a chemist, and not as his accuser. My advocate speech would be as follows: - According to the classical canons, you need to put yourself in the shoes of a suspect in order to understand the difficulty of the case. I do this and understand that I would do exactly the same as our hero. Imagine for a moment that angry people burst into your calm house and begin to make their own rules. The life of all loved ones, friends, family is under threat. And you are all alone, you have no connections with the underground and the partisans. What is left to protect our own? Probably get a job with the Germans and ruin their life from the inside. You also need to harm competently, so as not to be caught, because anything can happen. The invaders are busy with their own business, so saving people, risking their own lives, is the only reasonable choice. Yes, the client committed vile acts, but he did it all by force, in order to become one of those whom everyone considers enemies and to destroy all this horror from within. Yes, undoubtedly, the position of the protagonist is not the best by local standards. However, the secretary was already figured out by the SD. There is an excuse for my client. It's weighty. He helped as best he could, he retained his status both in the enemy ranks and in his native land. Probably, in the place of my client, I did the same as in the final. He finally felt like a real Russian man, a warrior and defender of the Fatherland! I have finished my speech. It's up to you, gentlemen of the jury! "The ice has broken!" ... so now I want to talk about the show itself. The "translator" is presented with a deep and elaborate picture that will capture the viewer headlong. Thank you very much to Andrey Proshkin, who has truly made an amazing movie. We are dealing with a series with a good budget and excellent execution. Before us is a real, beautiful movie that will decorate the air of any channel. In my opinion, the operator did the job very well. Although the actors are little known, they play with dedication and quality. It is worth paying attention to the actor Kamil Tukayev, who plays the neighbor of our protagonist. In addition, I was very touched by the scene of the “resettlement” of the neighbors of the Charlie-Jewish family to nowhere. I already wrote, I was surprised in reviews of other films: what about the ancient, God's chosen (see the Old Testament) people, everywhere persecuted (anti-Semitism - more than 2000 years! ) so "did not calculate" Hitler and Nazism and did not run away from them "with the whole kagal", but was as trusting as the neighbors of our teacher? Hence the Holocaust! So, the music left pleasant impressions. Alexey Aigi was able to write such melodies that would not only sound in the background, but also convey the special atmosphere of the film. It is immediately evident that young talent knows a lot about music. I remember all the compositions, which is very cool. I recommend this wonderful series to everyone. I'm sure every viewer will like it.
