    This movie might be my favorite ever!
    David Fincher manages to build an atmosphere full of tension and quite dark, with a recurrent yellow scheme. The acting is on point, with Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kevin Spacey.
    I've seen this movie so many times but it never fails to make me anxious and worrying about the characters.
    The opening credits are so chilling, with a great music by Nine Inch Nails. I just love how creative these are and how it sets the atmosphere for the rest of the film (like the Vertigo opening credits by Saul Bass for instance).
    The movie stroke me the first time I saw it, and it continues to do so even though I know the ending. I would really recommend to watch it if you like thrillers with major plot twists !

    Se7en David Fincher is one of the most engrossing thrillers of recent years. This story of two detectives who aim to solve the most important case in their lives, attracts our attention until the end of subtitles.

    The main characters are William Somerset and David Mills. Sommerset is a bitter man who long ago lost faith in this world, he does not see anything that could therefore give a cause of joy and hope. He has only few days left to retire. Mills is a detective who has just moved to a new city. Full of enthusiasm, zeal, and could hardly tolerate the peace and abandon his partner. Sommerset lives alone and is not looking for company, Mills is happily married . This so bad couple suddenly starts to working together , just thinking about one goal - to catch a murderer killing by the seven deadly sins.

    Fatty, greedy lawyer, vain fashion model - for the society innocent victims, for killer people not worthy of attention, but only contempt. The murder has a mission which he will lead to the end, pulling the police in the game, whose rules he lays down.

    Fincher in a great way reflects the atmosphere of the film, which is a kind of analysis of the human soul. It is dipping with each step into the abyss of evil. There is no place for the beautiful feelings, lofty words. This impression is compounded by continuously falling rain, anonymous city, where nobody knows anybody, dark pictures. And though the sun finally appears, it does not give the desired heat. Its rays burn the soul, turning it into desert and leaving the characters with the emptiness and pain.

    For me, this movie is perfect. Superb acting, great script, amazing story. All this made the famous scheme was presented in an original and highly addictive.
