Synopsis

War Horse counts the history of the relation of young Albert (Jeremy Irvine) with a horse called Joey. The father Ted (Peter Mullan), farmer and in diet of rent of an inconsiderate employer, takes a fancy of the horse, one pure blood. He buys it at a high price when in fact what he needs is a Percheron one, a horse of dragging, of load and not this beautiful steed. To pay its debts Ted does not have another option to sell the horse to the British army to the beginning of the Big War. Albert will not forget to its horse and will try, for all the means, to enjoy again its trot.

Comment

I have had to face the keyboard and the screen of the computer to be able to make this comment. Of War Horse it has not inspired me very much. I have not gone out of the movies with «the need» to count the battle. I have a difficulty: I do not know if to treat the protagonist (who is not different that the horse Joey) like a personage, like an actor to whom it could reproach its excellent performance (something sins of sobreactuación) or, on the contrary, to center on the history. In spite of this apathy I admit that it is a good movie. And I bind, with great pleasure, to express my gloss.

Spielberg narrates a story, a classic epic, which tacks a history that it has like protagonist to a horse. The stage, the environment of the rural England, is the field of battles where there developed the conflict of the First World war (acquaintance like the Big War, after four years of struggles in the trenches).

Albert, a tenacious and sensitive adolescent, has been in charge of training and domesticating Joey with whom he fell in love since he saw it being born. The farm of its father, Ted, a man obstinate and drunk, does not give for due to the excessive expense for the buy of the horse and to a ruinous harvest. Its wife Rosie is the prop that keeps the family joined Narracott and does all the possible from extracting forward the farm. But after the conflict explodes Ted sees an opportunity to extract money for Joey's sale.

Both, Joey and Albert, are separated by force on having brought in England in conflict. And, from here on, the plot thread will be the different vicissitudes for which the horse happens in this stage of its life that is to the service of the army. In the development of this argument we are going to be present at different episodes with the British knighthood, with beardless German soldiers or merciless military managers or with a French farmer and its granddaughter. The latter episode that of the grandfather and its fragile granddaughter performs the most emotive thing. The grandfather possesses a farm in the French country and devotes itself in body and soul to the care of its granddaughter Emilie. Emilie, girl, orphan, sickly and fragile, is full of life. The young woman will discover hidden Joey and from here on its life will prosper with the sensation of freedom that provides to him to mount on horseback. Emilie takes exterior contact beyond the farm and turns the care of the animal into its daily chore.

Bone of contention is provided with an excellent photo (the last images with these fire skies resemble the esthetics of what the wind took) and one more than sweet sound-track of the hand of unquestionable John Williams.

War Horse, is based on a work of writer Michael Morpurgo. It novelizes homónima that was taken to the theater in London, being there where the director Spielberg was done by the rights. As curious fact is necessary to review that a great-grandfather of Jeremy Irvine, who was employed like doctor at the First World war, in the real life went so far as to buy its horse after the war, in a similar way to as Irvine's personage does it in the movie. Irvine's family still preserves the receipt of the above mentioned buy. Ironically the invoice of the buy is of £ 28, the same number as Albert must pay to recover Joey.

Another curious fact that the producer facilitates to us is that the First World war was the last conflict in which there were used horses as complements of war. After the same one, the combats were mechanized completely.

Finally, War Horse is this story that they put to us for Christmas (this was the date chosen in North America for its premiere, last year) that speaks to us about the friendship, about the commitment, about the overcoming. One sees very well since it turns out to be very entertaining, agreeable, emotive and efectivista.
