Dear chess fans! Who, if not us, curious to observe the scene in the movie where played a game of chess? Even if it is a small episode, where one of the characters is checkmate or another full-length film dedicated to the famous chess player…
It is not surprising that the theme of chess is so popular in film, and for good reason. I think you will agree with me that most people chess is associated with high levels of intelligence of the players, and yet, with the aristocracy, nobility, belonging to any of the blue bloods!
For these reasons, the film Director, who wanted to emphasize the nature of the characters and their intellectual level and belonging to the elite of society, let me hasten to add story with a tense chess position in which hero will win, we are really cute!
Moreover, Smiths dream factory used during the filming of a variety of tricks and special effects. So, for example, specifically to shoot in the chess scene in the acclaimed Harry Potter, the characters played chess very real “lewis” chess – Museum piece found in Britain during recent archaeological excavations…. The film Director not only demonstrated intellectual abilities, and increased the popularity of chess in the Anglo-Saxon world, showing historically significant exhibit, established the existence of chess in Britain since ancient times!!!
But the most popular trick in the world of cinema, chess are fraud and imposture heroes, when it is not able to play chess protagonist wins of professionals, thanks to various tricks. There is hardly any person who is not familiar with the “new Vasyuki ” from the legendary film “The Twelve chairs” and a charming con artist, a heroine, Madolyn Smith, from the mini-series “ If Tomorrow Comes ”. If you haven’t seen these great films, then be sure to see these Comedy! Great mood and cultural enrichment is guaranteed. Moreover, these two masterpieces, I think, can be attributed to the classics of the cinema of the twentieth century…
A separate category can be labelled biographical films illustrating the fate of great chess players and documentaries about chess, but we’ll talk about in future articles.
Scenes in the film only partially reflect the richness and diversity of the chess game, but sometimes, looking through intricate stories, we can feel the inner world of the players, to keep track of psychological subtlety and manipulation, which can be useful in life, both Amateur and professional…and perhaps we just laugh at the trick naive and will extend their life!
You good mood and a nice view!
