The Speech of the King (The King s Speech) (2010) After promising John Adams (Miniseries of TV) and Damned United , the Speech of the King consolidates to Tom Hooper like a director to follow close by very. In spite of narrating a little while in the life of Jorge V, he is unmarked of biopic to center his history in universal subjects like the friendship, the self-esteem and the lack of confidence. One is a remarkable work in all aspects, but that, due to his limited emotional reach, does not manage to overcome the barrier that separates the good films of the brilliant ones. The film passes at the previous moments to II the World war and its argument concentrates in like Bertie (Colin Firth), the Duke of York and smaller son of king Jorge V of England, is incapable to overcome its problems of diction, which prevents him not only to express itself suitably, but to take part in acts witnessed by notary public with certain guarantees of not making the ridiculous situation. Luckyly, he is the second successor of the crown after his David brother (Guy Pearce). In spite of it, with the support of his wife (Helena Bonham Carter), tries to find a specialist who helps him to overcome her problem. this issue.
Each new attempt is equal of bankrupt that the previous one and brings about an increasing frustration in the Duke. When she had already decided to stop of his intention, a day her wife gives with Lionel (Geoffrey Rush), a specialist in not at all conventional diction Why is a so distant film if it tries on subjects that we would have to feel so near? The problem has two explanations of very different nature. On the one hand, the own nature of Bertie, member of the royalty, hardly implies passable distances on the part of Lionel who, other people’s to the condition of his new client, tries to avoid taking them to his land and forcing to him to respect his own rules. Good attempt, although is not transferred to the screen of a sufficiently incisive way like causing a considerable emotional openwork in the spectator. The second problem is in the excessive respect that Hooper professes to its personage protagonist; it does not finish giving the space him necessary to express itself freely, except in those sequences in which Lionel and Bertie reach the necessary degree of privacy and have the sufficient time like being able to lay the foundations that friendship that the script tries to develop of a credible way.
In spite of everything, the Speech of the King is an exciting film, that tries on human feelings, like the friendship and the self-esteem, and does with the great sensitivity. Also it approaches, collaterally, the differences between people pertaining to different social layers, such as its familiar life, its social life, et cetera. Hooper realises a good task, although it does not finish finishing off it. Recommendable, although as not to compete by the award to Better Film of the Year as many average ones want to make believe to us.
