It just so happened that the main movie breakthroughs are made across the ocean, they can also include this famous American children’s musical, shot so large and expensive in times without computers, when a huge, like the whole world, scenery for the film was built all year. And in our high-speed era, prices that were too high for all, even time, would not be enough. It is absolutely impossible to imagine such a thing – a real Emerald city with its inhabitants, many costumes, shoes and hats, simple houses and phenomenal palaces. Everything is done naturally, including a yellow brick road. But the point, of course, is not in the scenery, but in the story, which solves all the capital fabulous questions easily and boldly.
The plot of this film is generally well known to us thanks to Volkovs ÂWizard, the most ambitious plagiarism of the Soviet era. All the surname of the translator should not replace the author, in addition, the names of the heroes are also changed, only the little dog Toto, the Lumberjack and two other “sidekicks” are preserved by some logic. This, to put it mildly, strangeness would now be called rewriting, which, however, is not so important. The original story and this 1939 film will remain unsurpassed.
Girl Dorothy, is in conflict with her neighbor – the influential but harmful Miss Gulch (there are evil forces in the world – witches, evil spirits – you will not list everyone), who came to confiscate her dog (“This dog is a threat to society!”). Dorothy lives on a farm with Uncle Henry and Aunt Emily, and around them there are workers and a predictor professor, colorful characters who will soon appear in DorothyÂs dream in similar but unusual images, and the whole story of her adventures to save Totoshka will repeat itself, mixing reality and fiction, brilliantly described scenario hundred.
Of course, a hurricane begins, after which she leaves the house and, it turns out, this is not Kansas City, she is “on the other side of the rainbow.” Then Dorothy, on the advice of the fairy of Glinda, goes to the great and terrible wizard of Oz. Time to find out – does happiness itself come in life or should it be obtained? Having met the Scarecrow brought up, although without brains (ÂI wonÂt bother you because I donÂt know how to think), heartless Lumberjack and the cowardly Leo, the five of them will go to seek luck in the Emerald City, where no one is waiting for them.
Having overcome both the dark forest and the poppy field, he appears on the horizon – inspired by the City, its inhabitants are quite real, they are ruled by an invisible wizard who amazes over a secret “show” – the image of a large head on the screen, special effects, flashes of fire and smoke. A true wizard, although no one saw him, did everything for ordinary people to believe in his greatness. Everything that happens in the Emerald City is so fabulous and cute (“Is it a horse of a different color. Have you heard about this?”), That the untenable camouflage of the great and terrible looks organically. It is true that the supreme ruler will end up being quite ordinary (“And your magic is enough for that ? “), Well, how can I say … he knows how to attach awards. But our heroes with their dreams and shortcomings receive lessons of wisdom – Âevery creeping creature has brains, but there is no sense in them and Âthey judge the greatness of the heart by how much they love you and, finally, Âthere is no better place at home. And these are not metaphors, but exact simple truths.
And so, having overcome many obstacles, the girl will return to her home, only defeating her “outstanding villain”, an evil fairy, read your children’s fears from the depths.
Finally, such a difficult question will be resolved – is it true that only the possible, the impossible is really impossible? Are there opportunities lurking around us that no one thinks and dares to speak about? And those words of the wizard of the country of Oz – how not to be a victim of delusion and be able to get the strength of spirit, have the answer: yes, only keeping the eternal child in the soul, be able to ask and hear the voice of a fairy tale.
