Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix plot

"Evil Must Be Confronted."

Harry is being picked up from the Dursleys this year by a group of wizards from the Order of the Phoenix, founded by Dumbledore, who try to thwart Voldemort's plans. At the Order's headquarters, it soon becomes apparent that hardly anyone believes that Voldemort has returned. Harry has strange dreams about Voldemort these days, which might just be real... Eventually Harry goes to Hogwarts. There is also a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher this time. But this one is terrible and teaches the students nothing at all. As a result, Harry and his friends start a secret society: Dumbledore's Warriors. This society of students learns from Harry how to defend themselves. At the end of the year, Harry has a dream about his godfather, Sirius Black, being tortured by Voldemort.

Where Mike Newell went back to the traditional tour, David Yates opts for a cinematic approach. He lets the images speak: the transitions with the magical newspapers are a good example of this. And it must move forward, apparently. In this way, the thickest book becomes the shortest film. Maybe that's where the shoe pinches. The director sometimes finds outrageous solutions to his homemade problems. Of course it was Cho Chang who betrayed Dumbledore's Army, because her short (and meaningless) relationship with Harry must soon be ended. When it turns out later that she happened to have to drink Veritaserum, it feels like cheap compensation. Such interventions show again how much the absence of Dobby was a gross mistake.

The film does have a purpose. The viewer is presented with all essential dilemmas in a short time. That culminates in one of the best and most magical pieces in the entire series. The chapter in Ministry builds from mysterious to thrilling to gripping - the perfect finale.

As always, the casting was more than successful. Imelda Staunton plays a very good (and therefore annoying) Dolores Umbridge, including a high-pitched laugh. Watson has taken steps; Grint never disappoints; Radcliffe does a decent job, but sometimes still stutters in a strange way. Matthew Lewis and Evanna Lynch get a special mention: one is slowly budding Neville Longbottom, the other seems born for the role of weird Luna.

The fact that the images take precedence, the film does not invest in unnecessary side plots and the cast always carries the whole well, make Order of the Phoenix one of the better films.

Dolores Umbridge fires Professor Trelawny in front of the students, then Professor McGonaggal steps in and pits three celebrated actresses: Maggie Smith, Imelda Staunton and Emma Thompson. In three completely different roles. The crème de la crème of British acting. You can't find them at a higher level. Only Judi Dench is still missing.

Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange I found a lot less acting, a lot of screaming, a lot of angry looks, but also has little text I must confess. With Van Detta I always thought of Rita Verdonk, because of the description of her appearance (heavy eyelids) and of Princess Beatrix, then still Queen, especially because of her name. At least I didn't see her as a demonic version of Penny de Jager.

Many characters that were originally in my head have now been supplanted by the movie characters. I can't get most of them back, too bad. My favorite character, after Snape, is the psychedelic Luna "I hope there's pudding" Lovegood, played by Evanna Lynch, who recently wrote her memoir: The Opposite or Butterfly Hunting and in real life is also a kind of Loena Leeflang: sweet, vegan..

Another fine actress I would like to mention is Natalia Tena as Nymphodora. She was also a favorite of mine in Game of Thrones, as the dashing Osha. In the Dursley's house, she makes a comment about how clean the interior is. Years ago I read a very interesting theory about this remark in some book, I forgot the title of the book, in which a parallel was drawn between cleaning obsession on the one hand and racism, ethnic cleansing on the other.

Anyway, very nice melody in the score.

Thought it was rather dark and not that good when I saw this in the cinema. You can actually see that in all Yates sequels. Now that I look back at it all, I think it turned out fine. This movie doesn't really have anything as memorable as we saw in the previous movies. That's why I think it's the weakest of the series. It's also less about Harry and Voldemort per se, but now a whole Order and the Death Eaters are involved. That may have always been the case, but it also makes the film less personal and more distant in the whole scene.
