1. My Offers

1.1. The topic of weather is very well presented in the movie. But I would like to advise an excellent cartoon(«Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs») in which connects both a topic of weather and a topic of food. I am sure that it will be pleasant to any person.

2. "Groundhog Day"

2.1. Groundhog Day is a 1993 American comedy film directed by Harold Ramis, starring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliott. It was written by Ramis and Danny Rubin, based on a story by Rubin. Murray plays Phil Connors, an arrogant and egocentric Pittsburgh TV weatherman who, during a hated assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, finds himself in a time loop, repeating the same day again and again. After indulging in hedonism and numerous suicide attempts, he begins to re-examine his life and priorities.

2.2. Plot

2.2.1. Self-centered TV meteorologist Phil Connors (Murray), news producer Rita Hanson(MacDowell), and cameraman Larry (Elliott), of Pittsburgh television station WPBH-TV9, travel to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania on February 1. Their assignment is to cover the annual Groundhog Day festivities on February 2. Phil, who doesn't like the assignment or the town, grudgingly gives his report on the festivities. He then gets his team on the road back to Pittsburgh, but a blizzard shuts down all travel. The team is forced to return to town and stay another night.

2.2.2. Phil wakes up to find that he is reliving February 2. The day plays out exactly as it did before, with no one but Phil aware of the time loop. At first he is confused, but, when the phenomenon continues on subsequent days, he decides to take advantage of the situation with no fear of long-term consequences: he learns secrets from the town's residents, seduces women, steals money, drives recklessly, and gets thrown in jail. However, his attempts to get closer to Rita, to whom he has become attracted, repeatedly fail.

2.2.3. Eventually, Phil becomes despondent and tries more and more drastically to end the time loop; he gives ridiculous and offensive reports on the festival and eventually kidnaps Punxsutawney Phil and, after a police chase, drives off a high overlook into a quarry, killing both himself and the groundhog. However, Phil wakes up and finds that nothing has changed; further attempts at suicide are just as fruitless, as he continues to find himself waking at six o'clock on the morning of February 2 with the clock radio on his nightstand playing "I Got You Babe" by Sonny & Cher.

2.2.4. When Phil explains the situation to Rita, she spends the day with him and into the early morning hours. But they fall asleep together and he awakens again stuck in the time loop. Inspired by her positivity, Phil endeavours to improve himself. He begins to use his by-now vast experience of the day to help as many people around town as possible. He uses the time to learn, among other things, how to play the piano, how to sculpt ice, and how to speak French.

2.2.5. Eventually, Phil is able to befriend almost everyone he meets during the day, using his experiences to save lives, to help townspeople, and ultimately to get closer to Rita. He crafts a report on the Groundhog Day celebration so eloquent that all the other stations turn their microphones to him. After the town's evening dance on February 2, Rita "buys" Phil at the event's bachelor auction. They retire together to Phil's room. He wakes the next morning and finds the time loop is broken; it is now February 3 and Rita is still with him. After going outside, Phil talks about living in Punxsutawney with Rita.

3. My impressions

3.1. "Groundhog Day" is very lovely and sincere comedy, shot by Harold Ramis, an expert on how to amuse even the most demanding audience.The picture dazzles with positive emotions, giving a lot of impressions of watching a movie where you can find all shades of the ridiculous: humor, self-irony, anecdotal situations, characters and comic absurdity of the events in the life of one man who preferres all the life to seem by someone instead of to be.

3.2. The town Punxsutawney was very original. In February city dwellers awake a little groundhog who somehow forecasts the weather on the future. In my opinion, it is very lovely custom. But after reusable viewing it quickly loses the interest. And poor Phil is send to this, according to him, foolish holiday, every year. After the painful end on the second of February, Phil went to hotel,fell asleep and again wakes up on the second of February for a festival of a groundhog. Plot very cool, as for me. Idea is phenomenal, smart and devilishly interesting.

3.3. The protagonist ,Phil, by means of some strange magic got stuck in one day. (the second of February), he somehow got to time loop. And the most important thing is the movie doesn't explain it.

3.4. In film we can see the touching episode when Phil Connors feeds an old tramp, knowing that he lives his last day of life, while he never knew how to cherish priceless existence, while he try to break the vicious circle, titled "Life in one day",not knowing that this day could be the last in the life of every person on earth.

3.5. I am grateful to the authors and directors of this movie, who were able to put into the framework of such a light genre, like comedy, subtle notes of tragedy, thus equating to a genre film lyrical tragicomedy, which can be viewed at any time of day and year.

3.6. I think that Epicteus statement will be very pertinent «Some things are in our control and others not. Things in our control are opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever are our own actions. Things not in our control are body, property, reputation, command, and, in one word, whatever are not our own actions». In my opinion, everyone will find for himself the philosophy and understanding in it.


4.1. The slogan of the movie is "It is the worst day of your life. Maybe go through it again? "
