French drama thriller In the House directed by François Ozon presented at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival. This project can be considered the brainchild of an outstanding filmmaker, as he not only directed the film, but also independently wrote the script, adapting the play "The Boy in the Last Desk" by the Spanish playwright Juan Mayorga. The film "In the House" (2012) received extremely laudatory reviews, its rating on IMDb: 7.40.
The masterpiece of one of the brightest representatives of the French film directors of the “new wave” is like a performance captured on film. This is not surprising, given the director's inclination towards theatricality. As critics noted in their reviews, the film "In the House" (2012) consists of well-balanced scenes during which the characters move along strictly marked trajectories. At the end, the curtain falls on the screen. Ozone, like "8 Women" and "Pool", remains true to the satirical intonation of the narrative, with which he denounces the shortcomings of the middle class of today. To the cinemaIn 2012, his hero becomes a sixteen-year-old boy, outwardly similar at the same time to John Maulder-Brown from The Deep and Courtney Gainesm from Children of the Corn, and it is not clear whether he is a genius or a psycho. This dilemma is more actively discussed by the audience in reviews of the film "In the House" (2012).
After reading the essays of the students, the attention of the literature teacher Germain is attracted by the work of Claude Garcia. A failed writer, he is trying with all his might to develop obvious inclinations of talent in a sixteen-year-old boy. After all, a student makes a fascinating story out of a banal work, and it surprises not so much with the use of turns of speech as with a specific topic. He describes the details of the life of his friend's family, with a special place in his story is the mother of the family, "a woman of the middle class."
The voyeuristic research of a teenager, set out on paper, captivates the teacher so much that he unwittingly becomes his accomplice in observing someone else's life. The author's irony lies in the fact that the teacher does not notice how he himself becomes an object of observation.
Criticism and ensemble cast
According to reviewers in the reviews of the film "In the House" (2012), the director, in a recognizable author's style, subtly mocks everyone and everything. It goes to intellectuals who have not realized their potential, colorless representatives of the middle class, creators and admirers of modern art, businessmen-swindlers andcritics. But at the same time, the director's delights bribe the fact that, like Woody Allen, he treats his characters with sympathy, kindness and understanding.
The idea of the director embodies on the screen a wonderful cast. The main part is performed by Fabrice Luchini (The Return of Casanova). Germain in his interpretation is incomparable. The second male lead is played by Ernst Umoer, who portrays Claude Garcia realistically. It was the acting debut of the young performer. Two amazing actresses are not inferior to men in skill: Kristin Scott Thomas, who played Jeanne Germain, and Emmanuelle Seigner, who got the part of Esther Artol. The actors of the film "In the House" were praised by movie experts.
