The slogan of the film: Sometimes the most unlikely people become heroes. Sometimes the most unlikely people become heroes. (Sometimes even the most unattractive people become heroes.) Peter Bogdanovich (b. 30 July 1939) – American film director, actor, journalist. Born in a family of emigrants fleeing the Nazis father – Serbian painter and pianist, his mother – an Austrian Jew from a wealthy family. During his long career he took a lot of films – both successful and failures, has received many awards, including the Prize of the British Academy of Film and the prize of the Venice Film Festival and nominations, including the Berlin Film Festival. “Mask”in 1985 were released after a few medium Bogdanovich’s film credits and received the”Oscar”for best makeup and Cher won an award at the Cannes Film Festival Best Actress. In addition, the film was nominated for several more prestigious awards. The story is based on real events. The teenager, who suffers from a rare form of the disease, which has an extraordinary mind, excellent sense of humor, forced every day to prove to others that he has the right to be among them. The starring Eric Stoltz (b. September 30, 1961), theater and film actor, starred in”Pulp Fiction”and”Little Women,”playing on Broadway and was even nominated for a Tony. In the female lead he starred the legendary singer of Armenian origin Cher. Her duet with Stoltz gives a striking effect. The film is not perfect. It is a place anachronisms (such as baseball cards, which collects Rocky, a set of 80, while the film takes place in the 70s), and other errors (for example, when Monty looks in a distorting mirror, it shows his face distorted, but the face of his mother – no). However, all this stuff before touching, emotionally rich history. Stolz spent so much time in makeup, that when he came to the party on the occasion of the completion of filming, he had to introduce as many of the guests had no idea what it looks like in reality. A poem that his character reads a mother is really written by Rocky Dennis. At the end of the film Rusty and her boyfriend Gard visit the grave of Rocky, but really was not buried Rocky mother handed over his body to medical research center. Caution Following the film’s plot is revealed. And perhaps ending it! The film is set in 1979. Sixteen Roy Dennis, whose friends call simply Monty suffers from a rare disease, because of which the calcium is deposited at a tremendous speed on the surface of the skull, turning his face into an ugly”lion’s mask.”However ugly appearance in no way affected the character of the young man. Rocky – very sociable, intelligent and funny guy, he quickly finds friends. He lives with his mother – Florence that all the friends simply called Rusty. Rusty Dennis has devoted his entire life only son. It is immensely loved Rocky, trying his best to shield him from the rejection of others. However, it can hardly be called an exemplary mother: it is bad management, change men as gloves, most of the day spent in the company of their friends, bikers, and taking drugs. Rusty Rocky and move to another area, and Rocky is forced to go to a new school where no one knows. For a man with such appearance as he is the problem, first Director-General considers that he is mentally retarded, and tries by all means to prevent him to go to a regular school. However, Rusty gives him quite a hard fight back and seeks to ensure that her son was enrolled. The school Rocky immediately becomes the object of attention: look askance at him, shy away from him, with him not want to. However, light and cheerful character of the young man helps him to quickly integrate into the team. Rocky smart, he knows a lot, just let witty jokes, having to him all around. During a medical examination, doctors say that the growth has slowed down the calcium, you have to wait a little longer – when Rocky out of adolescence, calcium is deposited stops, and then it will be possible to have plastic surgery. The hospital has a new doctor, he tells Rusty that rapidly growing skull pressing on the spinal cord, it is possible that Rocky to live only 3-6 months. Rusty doctor interrupts, telling him:”We listen to this nonsense for 12 years. When I started to dig the grave every time they tell me that my son was about to die, I would have to get to China.” They Rocky prefer to look ahead with optimism. Meanwhile, the bikers are not so bad now for the younger guy. Friends Rusty love Rocky and do not allow anyone to insult him, they bring him to baseball cards, which he collects most of the day together is carried out on the nature of the company have a fairly large and friendly. Realizing that Rocky wants a dog, one of the bikers – a good-natured fat man almost a mute Dozer – immediately gives him a puppy, even though the young man had lived a cat, a rabbit and a bird. The city returned to an old friend Rusty – Gard. They had long been in love with each other, but can not get along, and then constantly converge, then parted again. Gard perfectly applies to Rocky, and the boy pays him the same. Rocky has a dream – after graduation he was going with his friend Ben traveled all over Europe, as it previously did Gard. For this purpose, they lay with Ben in the treasury every dollar earned, and donated Gar map Rocky says all cities, many of which read: Paris, London, Rome, Vienna, Barcelona. He wants to see for each of them. However, it soon becomes clear that between Rusty and Rocky all is not as rosy as it seems at first glance. Rocky did not like the way of life which leads his mother, he is constantly trying to wean her off drugs, slipping her brochures, pronounces her confusion over an affair that Rusty, of course, take a hostile reception, and sometimes they are very quarrel. But, nevertheless, the problem for the son of Rusty still in the first place. Due to illness Rocky often suffers severe headaches and Grow”speaks”the pain, helping him deal with it. Recently, however, the pain increased. After one of these episodes Rocky asks her mother to tie with drugs – he is afraid for her. She gives him a promise, it will no longer accept them. In one Sunday, all friendly company goes to an amusement park. Solid adult male bikers have fun as children, riding on the carousel and typewriters with teenagers. At some point all together enter the”room of laughter”, laughing at his reflection in a distorting mirror. And suddenly, in one of the mirrors Rocky sees his reflection. Distorting mirror suddenly showed him how he could have been, if not for his ugliness. Shocked Rocky beckons mother. Gard settles again with Rusty and Rocky, they have almost a full family, Rocky goes great learning, he is one of the most successful students treated him well, and students and teachers. But a new problem – a girl. Rocky starts eyeing the pretty classmate, but understands that his appearance has become an insurmountable obstacle for any love relationship. Of course, such a hopeless love and raging hormones could not affect its character, Rocky starts to become embittered, he swears with his mother – and when she realizes what the problem is, it does not stand up again and breaks. She takes the money from the piggy bank and then goes to buy drugs. With their help, she was trying to get away from the drudgery of reality. However, in the bar, where sits a drug dealer, Rusty sees prostitutes waiting for customers – and it comes up with another idea. It leads to the son of a young prostitute named Laurie. That first appearance Rocky frightened, but then they begin to talk. Word for word – Rocky and Lori make friends, chat midnight, but nothing else happens between them – Rocky admits that he wants to go for the first time with a girl for love. Lori and falls asleep in his bed. And in the morning when Laurie leaves Rocky mother reprimanded for making this idea. The school year ends, approaching graduation. Rocky in despair – he had nothing to wear, from the wardrobe he has only jeans and T-shirts. But there it is waiting for a surprise: the entire company bikers reset and buys him a suit to the prom. He moved with a love of friends. At the graduation Rocky awarded by several diplomas: for the excellent knowledge of mathematics, history and physics. All bikers rapidly rejoice his achievements, and Rocky, looking at the raging company proudly says:”This is my family.” After the awards ceremony good-natured Dozer – which was nearly mute from it were never heard a single word – hugs Rocky and with great difficulty, she says:”I’m proud of you, Rocky.” One day parents come to Rusty. Grandparents doted in Rocky, but with Rusty their relations strained mother immediately all kind of makes it clear that Rusty bad housewife, his father reprimanded her for life. As a result, when the grandparents take away Rocky baseball Rusty hard arguing with Gar, the leaves, and she was again drugged. When her parents brought Rocky night home, she is sitting in a deranged state. Rocky angrily tells his mother that his teacher accepts the offer and sent to two weeks as an instructor at the camp for the blind. And she let him learn to look after themselves on their own. The camp Rocky mastered fairly quickly, the only thing that is difficult for him – it yourself cope with their headaches. Soon Rocky meets with Diana. She is blind from birth, she loves horses. Between Rocky and Diana quickly arise friendships that almost immediately develop into something more. Rocky honestly admits it, that does not look like all people. Diana asks permission to”see”on his face. Rocky felt, she says that she likes him, she thinks he’s cute. Meanwhile, Rusty desperate. She was not used to live without Rocky, he helped her to organize herself, she has devoted all his life and now it feels as if she pulled out a piece of the soul. She desperately tries to write him a letter, but nothing happens. Returning Gard hardly calms her. Rocky and Diana spend most of the time with each other. When he tries to describe her surroundings, she says she just does not understand, which means”white cloud”,”green grass”. She is blind from birth, she tried to tell me about the color, but she did not understand. Rocky comes up with the idea. He dragged her into the kitchen and give it in her hand a piece of ice – a blue, hot potato – a red, cotton balls – it is white. Diana begins to realize that he has in mind. The camp arrange cheerful holiday -“New Year in July.” The organizers decided to give blind New Year’s holiday in the summer. With twelve hours of stroke Diane asks Rocky kissed her – and he does it for the first time in my life. However, all good things come to an end, come to an end and the change of the camp. During Diana’s parents arrive. She calls Rocky happily to acquaint parents with the guy she fell in love, but parents, shocked by his appearance, just come to himself, trying to take the daughter out of there quickly. And for Rocky comes all friendly company: Rusty, Gard, Dozer, Babe and Red. Rusty tells his son that finally tied with drugs and Rocky shares with her his joy – he now has a girlfriend. But then await Rocky trouble when he tries to call Diana, take the phone all the time, her parents and tells him that Diana was not home. Soon he comes to his best friend, Ben, and sadly reported that their trip to Europe breaks – Ben takes to his father, and his job is waiting for a new life. Rocky shocked – on a trip to Europe they dreamed of for over a year, it was a dream of his life. In the heat of the moment, he tells Ben lot of unpleasant words, they swear and leave. Rocky again trying to reach Diana – and again goes to her mother. Then he was going and went to the stables, where, as he knows, must earn Diana. There he finds a girl – it turns out, she was very glad to see him, she was greatly missed him and wondered why he did not call her. They understand that all this is because of her parents.

Rocky tells her that now collapsing all his life, but still good – because he knows that Diana loves him. And they will always be together – even when can not be together. In my heart, in mind. In the evening at the home of friends going back-bikers. But soon, Rocky admits that he has bad headache, and goes to his room. He seemed to feel something – saying goodbye to Gar and leaving, carefully looking at all of your friends. Rusty alarmed.
