Review of the film "True love" (A. N. Iezuitov, Grand-doctor, Professor)
A film of Santhi Jayasekera
The screenplay of Santhi P. Jayasekera under the paradoxically intriguing title "True love" is dedicated to the truly great and comprehensive, irresistible and life-giving power of love. This gives the screenplay the special interest and magnetism for its future audience.
The characters of the screenplay are young people with so-called "disabilities." Along with it the lives of the characters are closely associated with artistic creativity. Ruslan is a blind musician, plays the piano well and sings, speaks and hears, touch-sensitive.
Anna is a hearing-impaired interpreter, speaking the language of the deaf, speaks well and sees, touch-sensitive.
Paul is a deaf-mute artist, seeing.
Previously, we have already met musicians in art and in life, blind and deaf. Blind pianist ("Blind musician" by V. Korolenko), blind violinist (Mozart and Salieri by A. Pushkin). Beethoven became actually deaf. Blind is a talented contemporary pianist Oleg Akkuratov etc.
Moreover, at present in Israel there is a special and unique in the world theatre of deafblind performers, who will conduct tours in Russia. In Moscow the Fund of support of deafblind "Connection" was created, organizing competitions in the field of art and creative workshops. In St. Petersburg there is a puppet theatre for the vision impaired and hearing-impaired children.
Santhi P. Jayasekera goes very timely in his screenplays in the tideway of truly global tradition, at the same time significantly developing and enriching it, theoretically and practically.
