A good idea, but they failed with the implementation…

Review of Kitchenblock

If I were in such a camp, I would definitely experience horror. This is not like sitting on the couch, drinking tea, watching and admiring vampires. The atmosphere is certainly creepy, completely incomparable with my memories of the children's camp.

And what about the movie? More precisely, the history... The plot is based on the novel of the same name, so it is unfair to judge the creators by the criterion of "interesting". Here everyone has their own - who likes what. I liked the performance and the acting of actors who are so young, which only gives them a head start for such an "immersion". And I would like to highlight in a special way Fyodor Fedoseev, who played the role of Levka Khlopov. He played great! And of course, a loving Whistler (Irina Pegova)!

There was not enough "catchy factor" in the series. It's as if the film was glued together from a variety of storylines and scenes that seem incoherent to me personally. The stories of the scenes are cut off one after another and there is a feeling of understatement. And this is the main reproach to the director's work - I wanted to make everything bigger and more spectacular, but it turned out to be a pile-up, from which you lose all passion from watching from series to series. There was not a single (!) moment in which I would have a feeling of empathy for the hero. Just as there was no feeling of empathy for Valery Lagunov, who, thanks to the screenwriters, turned out to be a controversial character. He turned out to be very "different", although the boy, as an actor, is talented!

But the most destructive effect on the film was the lack of a clear genre. As I wrote above, the creators decided to stuff the series with everything they can. Mysticism, black humor, a lot of emphasized erotic scenes, flashbacks to the revolutionary past, chaotic love ties and a series of awkward moments in dialogues, for which even, as a viewer, "in Spanish, it's a shame". Therefore, in order to perceive this tape more fully, it is necessary to at least read the book version of the novel.

But if we talk about the visual component ,then "Food Block" is undoubtedly a breakthrough in Russian cinema! Beautiful camerawork technique, dynamic shots and even dialogues have finally learned to dilute the secondary actions of the characters. Sound effects also perfectly complement the atmosphere. Here everything would seem to be there to create a high-quality movie, but once again the embodiment fails.

It will be interesting to watch such a series rather only in the company of friends - after all, there are topics that you want to talk about, evaluate jokes, but it's unlikely about "being scared". Alas, I didn't have a decent aftertaste after watching it personally. Perhaps someone" Food Department " went more than me! At least, the moral messages in it are very strong. And at least for this one thing, you can say Thank you to the creators!
