The entire Internet has been discussing the sensational TV series Fisher in recent days.
It is based on a real story about a maniac of the same name who operated in the USSR. Of course, such projects have already become boring lately, but there is something in the novelty that makes her look further.
We have already rated the series and are in a hurry to share our impressions.
Welcome back to the USSR
The series is set in the 1980s. We are told about another serial killer who is not so easy to catch.
What is the series about: 1986 Teenagers are being murdered one by one in the area of government dachas on Rublevsky Highway. Intelligent investigator Valery Kozyrev, his daring partner from Rostov Yevgeny Bokov and a very young investigator Natalya Dobrovolskaya begin an investigation, not even suspecting how much it will change the fate of each of them.
The only witness who can identify the maniac is the schoolboy Igor, whose parents are not at all enthusiastic about his son’s contacts with the police.
In fact, the plot here is quite linear and simple in structure. In each episode, the investigators are trying to find another piece of evidence and reach out to the killer, and then, closer to the finale, they find some kind of clue. And so it goes until the very end.
This another detective story, in which the authors are trying to place the viewer at the epicenter of events and let him conduct his own investigation together with the heroes of the picture. We are told about the pedophile maniac Sergei Golovkin, the last criminal who was executed in Russia.
Unlike the same “Chikatilo” by Sarik Andreasyan, here the authors really prepared and correctly selected the actors. The story looks interesting and full of the smallest details. It does not look funny, as in the case of Andreasyan’s project, it is a rather complex and well-thought-out project from many sides.
True, he cannot offer anything specific of his own. This is a standard movie about the capture of a maniac, where his image is sustained in the “best” traditions of the genre – this is a stern man in a raincoat or suit, who walks through the woods and shreds people left and right, and his figure is always shown blurry, warming up interest for further viewing.
In the manner of narration, it is clear that the creators of the series were clearly inspired by True Detective and Dexter. However, for some reason, they decided to go more into personal experiences of prosecutors and investigators.
Yes, almost a third of the running time is given to the main characters’ own dramas. Bortich plays a strong and independent single mother with a difficult character, Yankovsky plays the role of a boorish investigator who does not care about other people’s opinions, but at the same time he has a dying wife, and Yatsenko has got used to the role of a domestic abuser who is trying to be a shrewd colleague at work.
Even the serial killer came up with a motivation and a reason why he did it all. In fact, it is encouraging that the authors thought of all their heroes. You rarely see this now, usually we have doodles in front of us, who don’t give a damn. But here the opposite is true – you want to empathize with each character.
And yes, the story is well-written. It can be pleasant or disturbing if you don’t know the original events.
It’s good, but there are a couple of questions
Camera work in Fisher is my respect. Periodically, the camera captures such unusual angles that you want to applaud.
The picture every now and then conveys even a slight breath of wind, and sometimes it seems to block oxygen. It seems that you are in the same room with a maniac, and this becomes really creepy. At the same time, you don’t even need to see it clearly, the atmosphere decides everything.
However, things don’t always go so well. In some places, the impression is spoiled by torn editing, which cuts off one frame and abruptly inserts another: sometimes you get lost from this and do not keep up with the thoughts of the authors.
The atmosphere of the 80s is well recreatedbut far from ideal. As in HBO’s Chernobyl, they also periodically forget to remove the plastic windows from the scenes, minor flaws are visible. There are very few of them, but they negatively affect the overall impression of the picture.
As for the musical accompaniment, it is here simply normal. I can’t single out anything specific, nothing sticks in my head. But at the same time, specifically in the series, the soundtracks fit well and help maintain an ominous atmosphere.
Good series to spend time on
Fisher is one of the few Russian projects about serial killers that is really worth paying attention to.
Yes, he has his flaws, but personally I don’t want to focus on them. It’s far from a perfect movie, but it has the ability to grab attention and hold it from beginning to end.
