hanna 2011

Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hollander, Olivia Williams and Jason Flemyng star in Hanna (2011), the movie by Joe Wright which tells of a young woman of 16 who has lived her entire life in the forest where her father has been preparing her to meet any surprise: while the attacks to prove their defensive capabilities, she examines in languages ​​and other important information. Hanna has saved a life if you have invented to pretend to be an ordinary teenager, but has not had a chance to learn to behave as such.

The work of Wright as a director in this film is excellent as the rest of his work as director, for example, directing actors or narration of the story. The picture of Hanna, signing Alwin H. Kuchler, is spectacular. In this excellent cosmetic result contributes a very wise choice of locations, such as Jurassic Park or the frightening abandoned working class district of Germany.

It emphasizes the sound design, based on a sharp contrast between quiet moments and action scenes. These are marked out with a noise using a high volume, allowing a very interesting game with all the nuances that can make the sound environment. The soundtrack of Chemical Brothers serves the same purpose and is ideal for mounting fast paced action scenes.

Hanna combines scenes of different temperature, time of particular sensitivity to blur scenes of action and science fiction. These steps from one extreme to another are not perceived faux pas, because, despite its tremendous difference in speed, integrated with each other because they are equivalent in intensity: an emotional intensity in one and another referred to the tension in the rest.


This sensitivity gives the result, among other findings, the character of the girl protagonist. Hanna is like a superhero; however, their behavior in society is strange. Throughout the full movie, we’ll watch how she strives to fit in and how are normal feelings to permeate hardened personality, which is not used to feeling.

It is very interesting to watch Hanna, also the study of antagonists, which are not presented as being flat, they are also suffering from problems and have their own motivations, which prevents not pose a tremendous threat. That is, the psychological depth of the film does not prevent work perfectly as a result of gender. In any case, the character of the father, played by Eric Bana, may be superfluous from the time she runs away, as its parallel search online does not give too much. However, in the early sequences, is a key.
