Steadily preparing for the decisive battle

With the battle against The Dark Lord Voldemort around the corner‚ Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is progressing in countermeasure preparations. Of course Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) is on the front line and makes excellent use of his knowledge and magic‚ but this time in The Half-Blood Prince‚ the really cool one is headmaster Dumbledore (Michael Ganbon). At Hogwarts there is no one as skilled a wizard; reputed headmaster Dumbledore unleashes the best secret magic. He packs a punch. Dumbledore acts in a way that isn’t understood by Harry and the others‚ but later it becomes conherent- those lower down not understanding that difficulties of those higher up- this appears to be the same even in the magic world.

Retired Hogwarts teaching staff‚ Professor Slughorn (Jim Broadbent)‚ is reinstated at the school. This teacher is the key person of The Half-Blood Prince. Harry undertakes the great burden from Dumbledore to get close to Professor Slughorn and obtain certain information from him. This is in preparation for the decisive battle‚ and Dumbledore requires to know what Voldemort’s weakness is to be able to stand a chance against him. The only one who knows it is Professor Slughorn. Harry obtains a memory from Slughorn’s past‚ and learns that there was something in Voldemort’s past which in itself is the driving force that made him into an evil wizard.

Meanwhile the school is full of pubescent students. Harry‚ Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) are all carried away by love‚ but on the other hand‚ a curse is widespread in the school and disaster befalls a student. The strange behaviour of Harry’s foe‚ Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton)‚ is mysterious. Only Draco is detached from matters of love; rather‚ he is trembling with a task. Added to this is suspicious Professor Snape (Alan Rickman). Friend or foe; the master potions teacher who until now has changed ambiguously. Will he betray Dumbledore’s trust? What meaning does Dumbledore’s last message “I’m counting on you” to Snape carry? The foreshadowing to the last chapter is steadily formed.

Slughorn is performed by Jim Broadbent. He won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in the film Iris (2001) playing the role of a man with a wife suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. He is a famous supporting actor who has performed in a wide array of roles‚ including Bridget Jones’ Diary and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion‚ the Witch and the Wardrobe. No matter what is said‚ his next much-awaited film is The Iron Lady‚ with a sheduled March release in Japan. He plays Denis Thatcher‚ husband to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep). Come to think of it‚ Thatcher was recorded as saying‚ “If you want something said‚ ask a man. If you want something done‚ ask a woman.”
