“Green Book” – one of the winners of the Golden Globe and Oscar’s apparent favorites. The film combines social inequality from two sides (race and position in society) into one theme of male friendship, thanks to music and endless American expanses. The film is universal, which is why it allows to form the most voluminous emotional palette.
The protagonists of Peter Farrelli, famous for his comedy work with his brother, are two men – the ingenuous and down-to-earth bouncer – Italian Tony played by Viggo Mortensen and his host, sophisticated and secular black pianist of classical music, Don Shirley Ali Maershalla. Don Shirley is going on a tour of the southern American states, known for his racial intolerance, and is looking for a driver for a two-month journey. All his friends recommend him to Tony, who alone is able to resolve any issue. And since Tony needs money, he agrees to this job, even though he may miss the coming Christmas with his family.
Don Shirley is not familiar with the simple world. He, in principle, dangles between the worlds – quite famous and popular for his performance, he can afford to be black in the highest “white” world, playing classical music. When the sound made by the keys stops, Don Shirley turns out to be nobody. He does not know his own people and does not understand them, while strangers initially do not see him as a person. He is honest, decent and prudent, has a chance to survive in this world (the picture is valid in 1962), but he has no one who would be next to him.
Tony is adapted to life quite well. Nature has endowed him with strength and character, residents of the area and bar visitors are friendly and respectful to him. He has a wonderful family and a large Italian family. He has no intelligence, cleverness and opportunity to make all this, but he is much better and more compact in the society than his master.
The Green Book is in many ways a brilliant road movie, probably one of the most enjoyable filmmakers, where the search for truth takes place within movement through large areas, watching surrounding landscapes and looking at the road for a long time, until the knowledge at the very end of the prospect become the most available to the character. On the same side, one can also see a buddy-movie, a friends cinema, where friendship is built in the first place in the search for truth. In these two forms, Tony and Don Shirley were posed by the director to solve all their worldview questions.
One treats the other chicken and learn to eat with his hands, throwing bones through the glass of a moving car. The other is responsible literacy and teaches how to write letters to his wife. Both are trying to restrain their emotions and raise their heads as high as possible, resisting injustice, but not obeying it. The interaction of the actors, along with the music, makes of a racial question some kind of prank, a silly childish problem that anyone can cope with, from which the film does not even go in the direction of philosophical social preaching, but teaches, like traveling on a snowy road, ignoring the snow . A road in which there will always be a final chord of comfort and tranquility, in the way of which there will always be people adjacent to you in human qualities, with whom you will find a point of contact for a long (infinite) time interval, and you will forget all your silly children’s difficulties.
Light, barely noticeable humor and excessive cordiality, evoke the emotions of the viewer, it is easy to work with them, and they are easy to absorb. Farrelli’s work hardly differed from what he had created before, but here he found a balance between serious and frivolous, found the most important combination of feelings Â sadly, when fun and fun, when sad. Maybe somewhere in this is his lack, for a part of the Cinephils, lightness is a property of poverty and understatement. Here, it seems, everything is said. His film teaches all the basic human virtues, without forcing them to take notes and memorize. And most importantly, not putting their value in the absolute – in this picture being a man is not so much.
