The film served as a crucible for some of the actors who were still young at the time, and the entire orchestra was undoubtedly led by Robin Williams in the image of Keating. Probably, a certain underlying thought was conveyed to the maturing American of those times, because its presence is indicated by a conservative school with clergy, writers and their books, little or almost unknown to the Russian person. But otherwise, the tape is accessible and understandable, devoid of obscenity and slightly elevated above everyday life. Social and family problems are skipped through the prism of Robin Williams's simplicity, insinuation and good-naturedness - something that he manages in many paintings with distinctive skill. Watching this movie for the first time at the age of 32 turned out to be a spontaneous and by no means successful idea. The last mise en scene firmly puts an end to the story, without bothering the viewer's imagination about the sequel and the understatement. It's a good movie.

The film deservedly received its awards. Stunningly filmed. The tension persists until the very end, you really empathize with the characters.

" In Latin there is an expression Carpe diem, seize the moment. "Pluck the rosebuds in your youth..." Why did the poet write these lines? Because we are food for worms, boys. No matter how incredible it may seem, each of us will one day stop breathing, turn cold, and die…
I want you to come closer. Look at these faces from the past! You often passed by, but I don't think you noticed them. These guys are not much different from you: they have the same haircut; they are full of hormones like you; like you, they feel invincible, the world belongs to them. Like many of you, they believe that they have a great future ahead of them, and their eyes are full of hope. But haven't they wasted their inherent abilities? Alas, gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils.
But if you listen, you will hear the words addressed to you… Bend over, come closer, do you hear? Carpe diem… Seize the moment, boys, may your life be extraordinary... "

A glorified, titled movie. He seems to be talking about the good, the important, the eternal. There are strong dramatic moments. But it didn't respond to me and didn't catch on. The events and characters look hopelessly outdated, the characters are unnaturally naive and enthusiastic, the whole story is somehow fake. Obviously not my movie.

It's a great movie, even though it's mentally difficult. Every parent, child and teacher should watch it. I really like actor Robin Williams, a wonderful game.

You can mince my comment as much as possible in advance, but I will speak out.

A film about 17-year-olds for 17-year-olds. Very naive and hyperbolic. To some extent, Keating did contribute to the audacious and reckless behavior of the students. At such a tender age, it is not rationalism that dominates the minds, but rather emotions. Impulses. Every thought is brought to maximalism.

Of course, you can't live within strict limits and let others control your life, but Keating's training seemed like that to me... lengthy. What did the students take away from him? Is life fleeting? Seize the moment? How stupid. As a result, they caught only an exception, and one was shot in the head. So much for talking about the sublime. It would be fine if they learned something useful from these lessons, but they just felt free and began to behave inappropriately. For example, to demand to bring girls to an educational institution for boys. Seriously? Another proof that at this age, only hormones and emotions rule. And what happens if the students are given complete freedom? The school will be left in ruins.

I'm sorry, but rational people better get past this movie. It is purely for young naive romantics who prefer to write poetry and reflect on high matters, being filled with their knowledge and despising the normies.

It was gratifying to see the suffering of Bati Neel. So to him! Although I am for rationalism, but if my child was so passionate about creativity, I would put up with it and would not interfere with it. He wants to live poor, but happy is his choice. What can I do? This is his life.

I absolutely agree with the comment above. In the first part of the film, you can only see teenage maximalism and naivety. If you compare it with an American pie, there are not as many differences as it might seem at first glance. The end is a little more interesting, because you can see the consequences of such actions and the consequences of total control over the child.

I didn't catch any super-deep meanings that some commentators are talking about here

After writing, I rethought the romantic line shown here and it's just terrible. Touching and kissing a sleeping, pregnant girl. To fall in with her at school and perform poetry. To say that you love her after one meeting. This is a beginner's stalker set, not romantic. Just put in the place of a guy, not a handsome actor, but someone with a bad appearance who is disgusting to you and imagine that he is doing the same thing. This is some kind of pzdc, I wonder how many teenagers have taken this kind of behavior as an example of imitation
