The Film Gourmand Posted by FilmGourmand 6 years ago in 1:42 pm
To tell the truth, inclusion of this post into a category «Movie inspired» is not absolutely defensible. In this case has occurred exactly on the contrary: the events played in the Ural settlement Sagra, have cast to Sergey Dorenko associations with John Sturgess’s film «The Magnificent Seven». He told about it in his TV-program on Ren-TV. Well, and this made me to watch this film once again that I and have done it with great pleasure.
Just in case, if suddenly someone does not know, especially, behind boundaries of my country, I will describe in brief aforementioned events in Sagra.
Inhabitants of this silent peace settlement in Ural were fed up by the NOBODY stopped criminal activity of one of inhabitants, the gipsy on a nationality. This activity consisted of selling drugs. That naturally aroused an infinite steam of cars, and simple the pedestrian buyers in this settlement. Well, and alien and strangers, especially, requiring money for purchase of a dose did not shun larceny at local residents. And any other bad acts.
More shortly, inhabitants of settlement who were fed up of all this, have declared the ultimatum to this gipsy and have compelled him to leave settlement. And he was forced to do this, but as Carlson and Terminator, has promised to come back. And not alone. And the word has constrained: after some days on approaches to settlement the caravan from 15-20 cars has been noticed. 9 guys, to be exact, 4 adult lads with three fowling pieces and 5 boys with pitchforks and an axe have acted on settlement protection. Shooting has begun. "Visitors", matter of course, were not empty-handed, on an attestation of eyewitnesses, had a lot of guns. However, in any way without expecting the organised resistance, chasteners (as subsequently it was found out, basically Azerbaijanians on a nationality) have soon enough retired to the background and have receded. Besides to the aid of defenders of settlement have appeared in time … no, not police but … women. Well, and who read Sholokhov, knows what is the «woman’s revolt».
Policemen appeared in Sagra only next day. And what they were engaged? They have started to press defenders of settlement that those would take the fault for murder of the nephew of any criminal authority, ostensibly, shot during firing. Intimidated inhabitants, that if those will not hand over the one who shot, this authority personally with a gang will come to the settlement and all will arrange a real massacre (Is asked, for which purpose do we such a lot policemen, actually ten persons in each corner?)
And after all, probably, would intimidate, as it, probably, often occurs. But it happened so that event, thanks to the Internet, became known everywhere. The higher investigatory ranks have appeared suddenly in Sagra, and it was necessary to local cops, sorry, polizei-men to be engaged in true originators of incident.
Here the outline of the events which have caused in Sergey Dorenko of association with «The Magnificent Seven» is that, in brief. Certainly, something the general is. But for me somehow distinctions are more evident. First, «The Magnificent Seven» has been hired by inhabitants of village for protection against gangsters. «The magnificent nine» protected their own settlement themselves. Secondly, «The Magnificent Seven», consisting mainly of Americans, which has gone for the work to Mexico where, apparently, owing to weakness of the state of force of the law and order simply were absent.
Sagra is located in the country where relative density of employees of every possible services of the law and order in a population lump reads off scale all reasonable limits. Thirdly, «The Magnificent Seven» has crushed a gang, having lost the four the companions, remained in the live have received the deserved glory, honour and respect. In Sagra, apparently, the future life of defenders of settlement from gangsters will be very hard. Already one how militian, sorry, the police chief declared all over the country that all complaints of inhabitants on the gipsy have appeared groundless that so much times checked it, and any criminal actions were not found, and actually as it was found out, this gipsy of veins under counterfeit documents and was registered in federal search. This means that militia, sorry, the police was at one for a long time with gangsters and drug dealers. I will not be surprised, if it will suddenly be found out that among attacking settlement there were also cops, sorry, polizei-men. Though, who will permit to publish such information even if it will be opened.
… So, between «The Magnificent Seven» and the Magnificent nine there is enough distinctions. But there is one moment to which hardly who will pay attention, but it seems to me symbolical. The matter is that main roles and in «The Magnificent Seven» and in the Magnificent nine were performed by our fellow countrymen. Well, that inhabitants of Sagra – our fellow countrymen, is not subject to doubt. And about «The Magnificent Seven» would like to note the following:
- Role of the leader of «The Magnificent Seven» of Chris Adams was played by the actor by name July Borisovich Brinner, the native of Vladivostok more known as Yul Brynner;
– Role of Bernardo’s O’Reilly was played by Karolis Bučinskis, more known under a name Charles Bronson, born in a family of the polsko-Lithuanian Tatars. Also, all our people.
- Well, and a role of the old man-Mexican, some kind of the confessor and the instructor of «The Magnificent Seven» was played by the Moscow native Vladimir Nikolaevich Sokolov.
So may be, not casually John Sturgess for key roles in «The Magnificent Seven» invited our fellow countrymen? Who what thinks about it?
