This is the story of growing up, the story of the war for YOUR PLACE. Each of us has something where we want to become the best.
The plot rests on Nina’s intrapersonal conflict, on her fears and minutes of passion, all this is perfectly captured by the camera.
In a dream, the girl finally saw her Destination, her Fate. Those who carefully watched the film should have noticed that in the hall when the troupe leader selected the main characters, he did not touch Nina – i.e. he did not choose her. She herself came to the main selection. The true essence of Nina is breaking out. She does not lose her mind, she finally wakes up and begins to choose what she wants.
Why initially Thomas did not choose her – because he is a real Devil-Male, he can love only the Black Swan, which is Lily. Lily cannot be the White Swan, she is Black, dark, it is stamped in her soul as well as the tattoo on her back.
And Nina is neither Black nor White, she is Queen Swan.
Elegant, sophisticated, delightful, bewitching! The perfection of the Black Swan is visible to all. I’ll speak banally, but I haven’t seen such a film yet. How much grace, plasticity, inspiration in it!
It is worth saying about Natalie Portman, but much has already been said about her. Who would doubt that this is not her role … The world knows that she is a great actress. And she was able to surprise again, such a bold role she played so confidently and lively.
I don’t know if I saw other works of Darren Aronofsky or not, it’s hard to remember everything. He is a nugget, this is my statement, and I’m sure many will agree with him. To keep the viewer in suspense the entire film without special effects and naked girls manage only a few directors. And he is one of them.
An evil tale about ballet with a mysterious end will remain forever in the list of best films.
