Industrial village in Pensylvannie,
Worker handling a blowtorch,
Cimino Plant his(her,its) decoration(set) from the beginning, between factory chimneys and pub where a group of friends which(who) work in the same factory détentent.
John CazaleAmong whom(which) it will be the last movie, because reached(affected) by a cancer of bones, during the shooting, drink with his(her) friends,
Of whom(which) Of Niro And Christopher Walken.
A big party(holiday) gets ready, because Steven PushkovPlayed by John SavageHas to get married.
The opportunity(occasion) for Cimino To film an endless wedding scene(stage), by being inspired, certainly, by the scene(stage) of opening of the Godfather,
During whom(which) Nick//Walken Will make his(her) demand(request) in Linda//Meryl Streep.
This festive evocation of the fate of a small Russian community, in full industrial Pensylvannie, highlights the happy solidarity of his(her) members, through this group of buddies which does not jib raising the elbow,
And to call to a soldier,
Which(Who) comes back from Vietnam!
The nouba finishes, and the drunk troop decides to leave hunting(chasing away,going hunting),
Opportunity(Occasion) for the director to show us the contrast enters this manufacturer city(estate),
And this spotless nature.
Hunting scene which welds this male friendship,
And connect(bind) this community with this Earth of Pensylvannie!
Brutally the decoration(set) changes, and its mountains, Of Niro//Michael Vronsky Meets in the Vietnamese jungle
To burn(blow) out of the vietcong with his(her,its) lance-flame! Striking contrast, narrative break which plunges us into the horrors of the war, far from soft Pensylvannie! Arrested, with Nick And SteveConfined in a cage(goal) plunged into a river,
To watch géôliers making play prisoners the Russian roulette!
Steven Nick Then Michael Will pass there...
Under the glance frightened by his(her) friends!
By taking(bringing) out supernaturally, the war of Vietnam will amount to this part(party) of Russian roulette which will summarize the atrocity of the war and will allow in CiminoWith this narrative process, to avoid itself of long scenes(stages) warriors. "Journey" is in fact no war movie, but a history(story) on the effects of the war!
Because when Michael Will return to his(her,its) small village, to its deep America,
To find the friends and the family,
In particular LindaWith whom(which) he was secretly in love,
The community will have profoundly been boulversée and the fortunately sad reunion,
In the sound of a moving requiem.
Because the war bruised the legs of Steve
Sat(Based) in a wheelchair for the remainder of its life! Nick Untraceable rest, and, for MichaëlThe collection(quest) is going to begin, finishing in a shanty of Bangkok,
Around a gun,
And an unchained(given rise to) assistance(audience) betting on the winners(conquerors) of part(party) of Russian roulette, still she(it)!
Michael Try to convince his friend Nick Not to go there, even going as far as participating in it
But nothing will make for it...NickDestroyed(Annulled) psychically by the war, will not be more than a lobotomisé robot,
Who will owe inevitably dead!
Paroxystic moment of the movie, this duel with the castor(roulette) between both friends, the one lending itself in mortal game(set,play), to try to save the other one, in vain!
Return in Pensylvannie, in a Greek Orthodox Church,
For the funeral of Nick, tragic scene(stage) answering the happiness shared of the beginning. Funeral(dismal) meal gathering(combining) all the friends,
The last one trinquage in honour of Nick
And the veil falls on men's history(men's story,people history,people story)!
Movie taken(brought) out in 1979, almost at the same moment as Apocalyspe Now, of Francis Ford CoppolaThis opus distinguishes itself from equivalent prestigious sound, outdone(subsidized) in Cannes, by its intimism singular, cutting with the wagnerian lyric of the first one! Movie about the effects of the war, destroying(annulling) a small Russian community in Pensylvannie, The Deer Hunter is not at all a warlike action movie, but an evocation bittersweet on the discreet implosion of a group of friends, subjected to the horrors of the Vietnamese conflict, which goes crescendo, of the festive marriage of the beginning, to the touched funeral of the end. In majestic mountain landscapes of America, will answer this Russian roulette, allegory of the war and the vital lead of the movie, too present and repetitive to my taste, Cimino Sinking into the a little bit heavy hyperbola, which did not take place to be.
The scene(stage) of the beginning is a little bit a bit long, not to say endless, occupying near the third(third party) of the movie, which has the merit to anchor the history(story) in a human community, but which fills a little the history(story) by its monotomne slowness!
Nevertheless the movie remains a success, even if it a little aged, with its tempo pianissimo which can serve as good sleeping drug!
The evocation of this labor city with this Russian community is moving, in the happiness as in the misfortune, and the final scene(stage), where all the friends meet around a table, honoring the memory of NickIllustrate the deaf solidarity which connects(binds) these men(people) and these women, which will not be allowed bring(shoot) down by the tragic disappearance of one of theirs!
He(It) gets free, even today, a profound nostalgia, of The deer hunter, evocation of a lost paradise destroys(annuls) by the war, under the music of Stanley Myers.
