on 17 November in the Russian rolling out the film “Fantastic beasts and where they live” is a new story about wizards, invented by British writer J. K. Rowling, who this time made his debut as a screenwriter. The Director of the movie was announced David Yates, he directed four of the Harry Potter books.

In fact, of course, it was revived not Harry Potter. And J. K. Rowling after a long break, presented to its customers a brand new and fascinating history. The last book about the boy wizard came out in 2007 (not counting plays “Harry Potter cursed child”, which premiered in June 2016), the last film in 2011.

this time there is another boy – very small, and an adult who graduated from high school. Not dark, but red, no glasses and no scar on his forehead. But also not like all the others, even among wizards. This hero’s name is newt Salamander (Eddie Redmayne), he is the author of a textbook on fantastic animals, in which children learn, including Harry Potter with colleagues in the school of magic Hogwarts.

This is something little that connects the current story of the “potteriany”. There are still some details that will delight loyal fans of the books Rowling. For such viewers this film will be an interesting background have already read and filmed. For viewers uninitiated in the details of life wizards is an intriguing and beautifully filmed story, which will have a sequel. It is known already that movies of the new franchise will be five.

the act of “Fantastic creatures and where they live” is set in new York in 1926. In the city arrives British newt Salamander with a small suitcase, which actually saved them live in different countries fantastic animals. Next to newt are three “local”: two sisters-sorceress (Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol) and accidentally caught the company of “non-magician” (Dan fogler). Together they are looking for and, of course, find a source of crushing the dark forces that rampaged in new York and keeps at Bay the entire city.

Moving the scene from the British Isles to America, the creators do not deny yourself the pleasure to sneer at the difference in mentality: even magicians in England and America give different names to the same phenomenon. For example, instead of the usual for fans of Harry Potter of the word “Muggle” American wizards say “non-mage”.

the Four main characters likable. But perhaps the most unusual and charismatic is a “non-mage” Jacob Kowalski, an employee of the canning factory, dreams to open his own bakery. The owner of a comical appearance, fat, and big in the most difficult and urgent situations, he begins to act like a normal person. His punch is sometimes more effective than the wave of a magic wand.

the Magical and normal worlds this picture, as usual, divided. But this time the magical world of new York to some extent aligned with the era of the 1920s: there are gangsters, clubs, where you pour a drink and play jazz singer in dresses in the style of art Deco.

Separately to say about the vibrant fantasy world. Written by the hero of this story is a textbook about the fantastic things published on paper, any fan of Harry Potter can buy it and read.

the Book was published in 2001, Russian translation appeared in 2009 under the title “Fantastic beasts and their habitats”. This is a detailed description of the fantastic animals, which are now the creators of revived, giving features of actually existing fauna.

In all these fantastic creatures, regardless of their habits, good and nice. But exactly what is indifferent will not leave one of the beasts – prankster nuhl, furry and agile animal, which is susceptible to shiny things. With a special passion he “moves” in new York banks and jewelry stores.

resist chatter that the creators of such large-scale paintings only think about income. Forget the talk about the dangers of fairy stories Rowling. Her books have grown up several generations of children, and rampant fascination with the occult, which some predicted in the early 2000s, didn’t happen. Stories about Harry Potter stood on the shelf next to the other tales. And really, what books are read by children, and what they are addicted – still depends on the parents.

the Creators of the new film fortunately, managed to avoid sketchy moves and cliches that can ruin any, even a very good literary history. One of the latest embarrassing examples in the world of children’s cinema – adaptation of the wonderful on paper, stories about Paddington bear. On the screen these stories, full of humor, charm and knowledge about the UK, turned into a formulaic story about a family that is overcoming difficulties, regaining peace and harmony.

“Fantastic animals and where they live” – a beautiful and fascinating film that has it all: an intriguing story, a magical world is really quite fantastic, deep thinking about the goodness and nature of evil. However, it is always different from the books about the young wizard Harry Potter.
