10 Oscar-winning paintings, sinning historical inaccuracies

"The story is based on real events" - by this introductory titre, the authors of the pictures coming out on the screen expect to attract additional attention of the audience, not just to surprise them with the breadth of fiction, but to attach them to facts and documents. However, are the events about which such tapes tell the truth? Alas, there are plenty of mistakes in them. We will not lament the death of Hitler at the cinema in "Inglourious Basterds» Quentin Tarantino or finding fault with the fact that characters from New York of the beginning of the last century are dressed in British suits 1960-ies - so you can dig deep enough, but we note some particularly blatant mistakes. Moreover, they are seen in the films that received the most prestigious awards, but the facts in them are corrected to please the momentary benefit.

Picture David Lina "Bridge over the River Kwai" - this is a real time-tested classic, which even today can serve as a model of director's, camera and editing art. And seven "Oscars", given to this film in 1958 year, are by no means accidental. But some corrections in the understanding of the plot we make all the same risk. And the main concerns the rationale for why the British soldiers built this very bridge, which became a household name. The film says that Colonel Nicholson insisted on the work of captured soldiers in order to raise their fighting spirit, the hero Alec Guinness even says that "soldiers are good only when they are busy with the case", holding in their pocket "fig" the destruction of the building at the right time. In fact, Nicholson moved quite a noble goal - helping the Japanese, he just saved the lives of his charges. In 50, this could still be considered a betrayal, but now everything is quite obvious, the characters of the film are heroes, whatever moves them.
