Tekla bo kri - There Will Be Blood

Slovenski opis filma:

Epska drama spremlja življenje in delo Daniela Plainviewa (Daniel Day-Lewis); iz garaškega iskalca srebra, ki sam skrbi za sina, se sčasoma preobrazi v samoniklega, neusmiljenega naftnega mogotca, zaslepljenega od črnega zlata.Epska zgodba in družinska drama spremlja ljudi, ki so iskali srečo in bogastvo v času naftne mrzlice v Kaliforniji na prelomu 20. stoletja. Kronološko niza osebne dogodke iz življenja Daniela Plainviewa (dvakratni dobitnik oskarja Daniel Day-Lewis). Pred gledalčevimi očmi se odvija Danielova prepričljiva in srhljiva preobrazba iz revnega garaškega iskalca srebra, ki sam skrbi za sina, v samoniklega naftnega mogotca, zaslepljenega od črnega zlata – v tolikšni meri, da v njem nihče, ki mu je blizu, kmalu ne prepozna več niti za trohico človeškega. Med tistimi, ki so hodili z njim ali mu stopili na pot, sta najtežje breme njegove razčlovečenosti nosila njegov gluhonemi sin G. W. ter mladi pridigar Eli Sunday. Slednji predstavlja drugo vrsto obsedenosti in poblaznelosti, ki danes razkraja svet še bolj kot kdajkoli – obsedenost od institucionalizirane vere in resničnega pohlepa, ki ga sprenevedavo prikriva. Ko taka človeka trčita v navzkrižju interesov ter nasprotju ideologij, bo poleg nafte tekla tudi kri.

Originalni opis filma:

The intersecting life stories of Daniel Plainview and Eli Sunday in early twentieth century California presents miner-turned-oilman Daniel Plainview, a driven man who will do whatever it takes to achieve his goals. He works hard but also takes advantage of those around him at their expense if need be. His business partner/son (H.W.) is, in reality, an "acquired" child whose true biological single-parent father (working on one of Daniel's rigs) died in a workplace accident. Daniel is deeply protective of H.W. if only for what H.W. brings to the partnership. Eli Sunday is one in a pair of twins whose family farm Daniel purchases for the major oil deposit located on it. Eli, a local preacher and a self-proclaimed faith healer, wants the money from the sale of the property to finance his own church. The lives of the two competitive men often clash as Daniel pumps oil off the property and tries to acquire all the surrounding land at bargain prices to be able to build a pipeline to the coast, and as Eli tries to build his own religious empire.
