4. In pursuit of happiness (2006);

The Pursuit of Happyness is an American biographical film directed by Gabriele Muccino, released in 2006. The tape tells about a man who went from a poor sales representative to a successful broker. Stephen Conrad's screenplay is based on Chris Gardner's memoir of the same name, co-written with Quincy Troup.

The action of the film begins in 1981 in San Francisco (California). Linda and Chris Gardner live in a small apartment with their son Christopher. Chris Sr. spent all the family savings on a franchise selling portable densitometers. These scanning devices provided slightly clearer images than X-ray machines, but most of the doctors Chris saw thought the devices were too expensive. Linda worked a dead-end job in the laundry room of a local hotel. The tension in the relationship grew in proportion to the accumulation of late payments for housing and bills. Chris often parked his car in unsolved places in order to make it to meetings on time, and after parking, numerous fine tickets remained unpaid. Eventually, Lindy gets fed up with this life and moves away. Chris insists that his son stay with him. After long talks, Christopher stays with his father, and Linda decides to leave to work in New York, where a better job awaits her.

Chris accepts an unpaid internship at the brokerage firm Dean Witter Reynolds, which promises employment to only one out of twenty interns based on the results of the internship. Lack of money and no densitometers to sell puts Chris in a bind, and as a result he and his son become homeless. Forced to sleep in a subway toilet, Chris and his son line up at the end of each day at a Methodist church shelter in an attempt to get a place to sleep peacefully. Sometimes they manage to get into a shelter, sometimes they stay on the street. Doing everything possible for his son, despite all the difficult circumstances, Chris finds the strength to complete the internship program and become the only intern the firm will hire.

As a result, Chris got a job, and then in 1987 founded his brokerage firm. After selling his stake in 2006, he earned millions of dollars.

5. The Bucket List (2007);

The Bucket List (English: "The Bucket List", literally "The list from the garbage bucket" - the name of the list of recent things, given in the title of the picture, beats the euphemism kick the bucket) - a 2007 film directed by Rob Reiner and written by Justin Zeckham.The story centers on two terminal cancer patients (Nicholson and Freeman) who want to fulfill all their wishes before they die.

Billionaire and owner of a hospital chain, Edward Cole (Jack Nicholson), once said that there would be no solitary confinement in his institutions. Now, having entered his own hospital with a hopeless diagnosis, he is forced to share a ward with Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman), a simple black car mechanic, although very well-read and erudite. Carter is the head of a large and friendly family, he is surrounded by the attention of loved ones who sincerely love him. Misanthrope Edward is visited only by his personal assistant. Faced with the need to somehow communicate with each other, the comrades gradually grow closer to each other through misfortune.

One day, Chambers comes up with the idea of making a list of what he would like to do in the time he has left (bucket list, which is played in the name of the film). After learning that he has less than a year to live, Carter throws away the yellow paper sheet with the list, but the next morning it is found in the trash can by Cole, who is also predicted by doctors to have no more than six months to live. Having carefully studied the list compiled by his neighbor, Edward offers to realize his dreams together. He adds to the list various, in his opinion, "fun things" (for example, skydiving) and promises to fully fund all activities. Despite his wife's protests, Chambers agrees.

The two of them travel the world, visiting the Egyptian pyramids, the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China, the Himalayas and gradually waiting on the yellow sheet point by point. At the top of the Cheops pyramid, Edward tells Carter that he had a fight with his daughter years ago when he hired people to "take care" of a man who was beating her. After returning to his homeland, Chambers tries to persuade Cole to meet his daughter, but he just loses his temper.

Chambers returns to his family, but unfortunately not for long - the same evening, after a family dinner, he is rushed to the hospital, where he dies on the operating table. After that, Edward, fulfilling the posthumous request of a friend, still reconciles with his daughter and sees his granddaughter for the first time (crossing out another line: "Kissing the most beautiful girl in the world"). At Chambers' funeral, Cole admits that although they hadn't known each other just three months ago, the last months of Carter's life had been the best months of his, Edward's, life. Only here, seeing off Carter, Cole thinks he has the right to cross off the penultimate wish on the list: "To do good to a stranger."

Edward himself dies in a few months. In the film's finale, Cole's assistant, carrying out his will, climbs the highest mountain in the North American Cordillera to leave a coffee can with his boss's ashes at the top. Placing it in the casket next to the urn already there with Chambers' ashes, he looks around at the majestic snow-capped peaks around him and crosses out the only remaining item on the sheet of yellow paper: "To witness something truly grand."

6. Seven souls (2008);

"Seven Pounds" (English: Seven Pounds) is a feature film, a drama directed by Gabriele Muccino. Movie tagline: Seven Names. Seven Strangers. One Secret" (in the Russian box office: "They do not know each other. They have different destinies. But they have one secret"). The world premiere took place on December 19, 2008.

The film begins with the main character calling 911 about an accident, a suicide. He calls himself a victim...

Two years before the events, Tim Thomas (Will Smith) (through most of the film he introduces himself as "Ben Thomas") is involved in a car accident that kills seven people, including his fiancee, Sarah Jenson (Robin Lee).

A year after the accident, having given up a career as a space station engineer, Tim donates a lung share to his brother (Michael Abo), an IRS employee (Internal Revenue Service, US tax office). Six months later, he donates part of his liver to a child welfare worker named Holly (Judienne Elder). After that, he starts searching for the next candidates for receiving donor organs. He finds George (Bill Smitrowicz), a youth hockey coach, and donates a kidney to him, then donates his bone marrow to a boy named Nicole (Quentin Kelly).

Two weeks before his death, he contacts Holly and asks her if she knows of anyone else who deserves help. She points to Connie Tepoz (Elpidia Carrillo), whose roommate keeps beating her up. Tim moves out of his house and into a local motel, taking with him a tank of jellyfish. One night, beaten up, Connie dares to call Tim, who gives her the keys and title deeds to his oceanfront home. She takes her two children and moves into this house to start a new life and give her children a chance.

Stealing his brother Ben's ID and posing as his brother, Tim screens candidates for the last two donations. The first is Ezra Turner (Woody Harrelson), a blind butcher who plays the piano. Ben calls Ezra Turner and acts cocky, trying to see how quickly he can be pissed off. Ezra remains unmoved and Tim decides that he is a worthy candidate.

The next candidate is the manager of the nursing home, but upon inspection turns out to be a scoundrel, unworthy of Tim's help.

Then, under the guise of an audit for a $56,000 tax lien, he hooks up with Emily Poza (Rosario Dawson), a greeting card entrepreneur who needs a heart transplant and has a rare blood type. He spends time with her and her dog, weeding her garden and repairing her rare Heidelberg printing press; they fall in love with each other. Emily's condition worsens. After the deterioration, Emily is transferred to the first group - she is given a pager that should beep when there is a chance to receive a donor heart while standing in line.

Ben tracks Tim down at Emily's house as he and Emily finish a romantic dinner. He demands that Tim return his IRS ID and car keys. Tim returns home and makes love to Emily. To avoid meeting his brother, he runs away from home and meets with Emily's doctor about the final prognosis of the girl's condition. The doctor says that the chance of finding a suitable donor is no more than five percent.

Having finally made up his mind, Tim returns to the motel. He fills the bathtub with ice water to preserve his organs, writes a note instructing rescuers and, sinking into the bathtub, calls an ambulance, then commits suicide by releasing a deadly poisonous box jellyfish into the bathtub.

His friend Dan (Barry Pepper), as the executor of the will, makes sure that Tim's organs are transplanted to Emily and Ezra. Ezra Turner gets the cornea and Emily gets the heart. Later, Emily comes to a concert in the park, where the sighted Ezra is playing the piano and he guesses that it is her.

8. Life of Pi (2012);

"Life of Pi" (eng. Life of Pi) is an adventure drama directed by Ang Lee in 3D format. The tape is based on the novel of the same name by Yann Martel, published in 2001. The film stars Indian budding actor Suraj Sharma in the lead role.

The premiere took place at the New York Film Festival on September 28, 2012. It was released in wide distribution in the USA on November 21, 2012, in Russia on January 1, 2013. The American Film Institute named the film one of the ten best films of the year, and the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honored the film with 11 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture of the Year.

An Indian man named Pi communicates with the writer Yann Martel, to whom he tells his incredible story. His father named him after the swimming pool in Paris Piscine Molitor. As a child, he was interested in several religions, and at once professed Hinduism (Vaishnavism) with Vishnu, Catholicism with Christ, and Islam with Allah. At school, because of the ridicule of his classmates over his unusual name Pisin, he decides to call himself Pi after the letter of the Greek alphabet. During the time spent at the summer camp, he prepared and on the first day of the school year presented his name to his classmates as the mathematical number π, even writing down several hundred signs of this number. When he was 15 years old, his father, being the director of the zoo, announced that the family would have to leave India, taking half of the animals with them and sell them in Canada to start a new life. Pi tried to dissuade the family from leaving their native home, but to no avail.

The sea journey begins with a Japanese cargo ship. On the fourth day after docking in Manila, the ship gets caught in a storm. Pi woke up at the noise and got up on deck. Excited by the storm, he shouted: “Stronger! Stronger!". Immediately after that, an alarm sounded, a wave carried several sailors from the deck into the ocean, the holds began to fill with water. A couple of sailors caught Pi and, promising to find his parents, threw him into a boat that already had a cook in it. But then the zebra jumped into the boat, and the cook fell overboard, and the boat became unhooked and flew down. A big wave overwhelmed the ship, and it went to the bottom. Pi, hanging from the boat and seeing the ship, which was still illuminated by lanterns, shouted: "Forgive me! Mother! Father! Rave! It's my fault!" After the storm subsides, Pi examines his "ark." The boat contained some of the animals from the ship: a hyena, a zebra that broke its leg when it fell, an orange orangutan that swam up on a bunch of bananas, and a Bengal the tiger Richard Parker (his name is "Thirsty" and the name of hunter, passed, hunter, passed, hunter, passed, zoo, passed, passed, passed, passed, and hunter, passed, passed, passed, passed, appeared on 100%). ). The hungry hyena kills the zebra and then Orange, who stood up for Pi. At the end of these showdowns, the tiger jumps out from under the harness and kills the hyena. Pi is left alone in the boat with the tiger. The struggle for survival begins.

Pi builds a small raft, on which he sinks life provisions and all sorts of useful things, and fastens it with a rope to the boat. While swimming, Pi tried to win back the boat. At first he tried to show his authority and even "noticed" half of the boat, but nothing came of it. Then he started fishing and feeding Richard Parker. Once Pi had sunk all the galettes from the lifeboat's arsenal onto his raft, but at night, while playing with the bioluminescent plankton in the water, he disturbed a whale, which overturned the raft, leaving the vegetarian Pi without food. He managed to save himself from starvation during the raid of volatile fish. One of the large predatory fish that prey on the volatile fell into the boat. Out of hunger, Pi stole a fish from Richard Parker and ate it himself. On their way, they meet fish, jellyfish, whales and a mysterious island with meerkats, beautiful, predatory and insidious, like a Venus flytrap; "What I gave during the day, I took back at night" (life). As Pi explained, God gave him rest, but sent a sign that he should continue his journey (Pi found in a flower the tooth of a person who remained on the island, died and was digested). After arriving at the coast of Mexico, Pi tiredly dragged the boat aground and fell on the warm, soft sand ("the cheek of God" - as Pi put it). The emaciated tiger jumped over Pi, shook himself, approached the rainforest, stopped, looked there and ran into it. Pi hoped that before that, Richard Parker would turn or in some other way "put an end" to their relationship. He is later found by people, and in the hospital where he was placed, representatives of the Japanese ship-owning company who came spoke to him, but they did not believe his story. Pi then told them another, more plausible, but grimmer version of what had happened. There were no animals in the boat, and the struggle for survival unfolded between Pi (Richard), his mother (Orange), an injured sailor nicknamed "The Happy Buddhist" (Zebra) and a mean Frenchman from the ship (Hyena). The plot is very similar to the previous one. The sailor's leg began to rot, and the cook killed him, dried the meat and ate it. While fishing, Pi could not hold the turtle and the coc wanted to kill him, but his mother interceded and told Pi to jump on the raft (built by coc for fishing), but when Pi looked back from the raft, his mother had already killed him. After that, Pi "did to the coke what he had done to the sailor." And Pi drifted on the boat alone.

At the end of the film, Pi offers the writer a story to choose from. The writer chooses a story with a tiger, and Pi gives it to Yann.
