Рецензія на фільм / Film Review "Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone" / Гаррі Поттер і філософський камінь / Гарри Поттер и философский камень
“Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” is a British-American fantasy film directed by Chris Columbus. It is based on the splendid novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling. The movie was released in 2001 and at once it became a box office hit.
The film follows a little boy Harry Potter who lives with his neglectful relatives the Dursleys in Surrey, England. His life is ordinary one until a mysterious stranger Rubeus Hagrid tells the boy that he is a wizard. And moreover, Harry discovers that he is famous because the evil Lord Voldemort has failed to kill him. Hagrid also reveals to Harry that there is a special Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy and the boy is invited to attend it. Having bought his school supplies, Harry Potter boards the train to Hogwards. But it is only the beginning of the story…
What is striking about the film is the way that it draws the audience into the world of magic and miracles. The gripping plot, absolutely breath-taking scenery and staggering special effects will definitely enchant you. And the spectacular acting of Richard Harris, Maggie Smith and other marvellous actors makes you believe that Harry Potter`s world is real and up for grabs.
Another thing which probably surprises you is the music of the film. The soundtrack to “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone” was composed by John Williams and was nominated for Best Original Score at the 74th Academy Awards. This music is a brilliant piece of art. And you can nothing but relish it.
The film is very exciting and really worth watching. I would advise it to anyone, especially to those whose lives need a little bit of magic and a glimmer of hope. “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” appeals to both adults and children because it is not only a beautiful fairy tale but also it is an inspiring complex story about the eternal struggle between good and evil.
