    Disappointing, this movie is very deep and needs someone who has a broader view of what came first the chicken or the egg

    Jonas Brenton Thwaites lives in an isolated futuristic utopian society complete with genetic engineering, void of emotion, and people control through daily chemical injections It is an artificial society that appears to be black and white When the students graduate Hint at target audience they are assigned professions based on their observed talents Jonas was special and is to receive special training from The Giver Jeff Bridges who never says man or dude Jonas is to learn pain, emotion, and be given memories of the past world and life, the good, the bad, and the ugly.Following the formula, Jonas believes this clean utopian society is worse than the world we lived in and sets out to change things.This is another teen saves the world film Fans of Divergent, Hunger Games, etc should find interest in this picture The film spent a lot of time in the beginning setting up the world and getting Jonas into training The end felt hurried and I suspect dragged out longer in the book With fifteen minutes left, I was thinking it should have another thirty to forty minutes to go.Yes this is another deep profound utopian society film that asks the same questions as all the other deep profound utopian society films.I felt it was overrated at PG 13 No swearing, sex, or nudity Infant is given an injection to kill it Boy punched in face Flashes of war scenes.

    Nach einem anstrengenden Tag beschlossen wir uns diesen Film aus der Bibliothek auszuleihen Mit Taylor Swift in der Besetzung und den Vorschl gen, die einem hier gemacht werden, erwarteten wir einen generischen YA Film, ber den wir uns einfach ein wenig am sieren k nnten In den ersten 10 Minuten haben wir noch fr hlich gequatscht, dann wurde es zunehmend still auf dem Sofa Die Tr nen kamen uns ohne zu viel verraten zu wollen genauso sehr, wie gl ckliches Lachen.Unsere Reaktion l sst sich wohl am besten so beschreiben am Ende haute meine Freundin frustriert mit der Hand auf das Sofa und rief Warum ist dieser Film SO gut Wir haben und auf jeden Fall sofort den Film und die Komplettbox der B cher gekauft, die wir gerade alle lesen.Wer diesen Film in eine Kategorie mit Hunger Games oder Divergent steckt, tut ihm und sich selbst ein gro es Unrecht Schon alleine die Cinematography ist so gro artig, dass der Film sich alle mal lohnt Die Distopie ist in sich schl ssig, ungewohnt glaubw rdig und in ihrer stillen, unauff lligen und pr zisen Ausf hrung so viel schlimmer, als die lauten und offensichtlichen Versionen mit ihren zerst rten Geb uden und Hungersn ten.Diesen Film kann man sich nicht nur einmal angucken, sondern sollte es auch unbedingt tun.Wie viel sind wir bereit aufzugeben f r ein sicheres Leben

    Ich habe diesen Film auf Grund der Beschreibung gekauft Und entdeckt beim St bern bei , zwischen den g nstigen Filmen.Ich hab den Film am n chsten Abend gleich nochmal geschaut Da steckt so viel Wahrheit drin, wenn man noch nicht ganz blind und manipuliert ist erkennt man den tieferen Sinn Wir d rfen es nicht so weit kommen lassen, dass wir eines Tages in solch einer Zukunft erwachen und wir unseren Urenkeln von der heutigen Welt erz hlen m ssen, damit sie nicht v llig in Vergessenheit ger t Aber welcher Enkel wird die F higkeit eines H ters haben Wer will denn schon aus der Reihe tanzen und anders sein Wir m ssen uns unsere Menschlichkeit unbedingt bewahren Hab mir auch das Buch bestellt Bin schon gespannt, es soll ganz anders sein als der Film.Was ich schade finde ist das dieses Buch oder der Film im Schulunterricht durchgenommen wird Die Sch ler m ssen eine Inhaltsangaben, Sachanalysen und Interpretationen schreiben Was ich dazu von Sch lern im Internet fand ist ziemlich traurig bzw sehr oberfl chlich So ein Film muss in der Tiefe bearbeitet werden Liebe Lehrer achtet doch mal darauf

    In the future, humans live in a high tech mountain top community where emotions are controlled with drugs and living is safe but drab and colourless Jonas is the lead character and is to be the next Giver but on his journey he discovers the secret past of his people and realises that he needs to escape to, ultimately, save everyone.A great idea for a story even though there isn t a lot of originality Cobbled together from a number of previous films and TV series, The Giver is nonetheless a pleasing production which would have been made with a healthy budget and the production values that go along with it This is also evident in the casting which includes many seasoned actors who give good performances.There is a lot of time spent following the day to day lives of the community members and watching the education of Jonas, and while this all works really well, a point is reached where the filmmakers seem to realise that they need to draw the story to a close, at which point everything speeds up While this is OK, the plot issues start to appear towards the end when many questions are raised but none of them are answered So you are left with some confusion about the people and how the current situation of their existence has come about, and what is really going on elsewhere in the world.The Blu ray presentation is the typical glossy view provided by a digital shoot but I like this The special effects are very good in general and quite believable Note that much of the earlier part of the film is shot in black and white but bright colours are gradually revealed as things move along The sound is delivered via a dts HD MA track which is typically good for the medium and provides clear speech and good support for the score.In the end, a good film which could have been better had been done with the conclusion.

    Based on a novel written by Lois Lowry published in 1993 this ambitious, thought provoking dystopian SF film is an intriguing exploration of totalitarianism set in an apparent post apocalyptic world where society has been reorganised into a series of peaceful self contained isolated communities However, this harmonious utopian society only exists through the chemical suppression of emotion as the philosophy of sameness demands total conformity and blandness and whose members are closely monitored for signs of deviant behaviour The rationality behind this belief being that the eradication of war, famine and other forms of suffering, and therefore the survival of the human race, can only be achieved through control, orthodoxy and obedience The sanitisation of language reminiscent of George Orwell s 1984 conceals the underlying brutality of the regime and the cold blooded efficiency displayed in maintaining order has chilling overtones of the concept of the master race Within this strictly structured society the existence of The Giver seems incongruous, but is deemed vital to the survival of society since the person in this position is the source of past memories and wisdom The narrative focuses on a 16 year old boy who has been chosen to take over this position and the consequences to him and his community of being exposed to past memories and feelings Brenton Thwaites certainly gives an assured performance as the protagonist and there are sound, restrained supporting performances from Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes The cinematography is interesting and the limited use of CGI ensures that there is no distraction from the kernel of the movie I liked it.
