Such techniques included camera angles, wardrobe, facial expressions, use of sound and lighting, the placement of the apartments, and the partial view through the windows. However, use of sound is particularly important to this movie.
In Elie Wiesel's book Night, he is an innocent teenager, a child, whose innocence was taken from him as a result of the awful things that Hitler did in World War Two. In children and young adults who survived the holocaust in concentration camps, their innocence was lost as soon as they walked through the gates into captivity. This will be proven by discussing the loss of faith, family, and the cruelty of the Nazis toward the Jewish people during WWII in the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau. Before Elie was forced into a concentration camp, he was a young and innocent child focused on his faith from birth. He was a strong believer in Judaism, and even studied mysticism and the texts of their sacred scriptures.
This film focused on World War II and the way jewish people were treated. The story is told through the eyes of a young boy who came from a german family and who's father was in charge of a certain concentration camp that they lived close to. The director like Johnston used lighting to emphasise emotions of sadness and dullness. In one scene in the film directed by Mark Herman, he used dim lighting when Bruno, the young boy's, family went out searching for him although he had already died in the concentration camp. The lighting gave off a sense of sadness which is what the director intended to do, telling by what was happening in the scene itself.
Jinu Park English A Language and Literature Standard Ms. Grieble 24.10.2011 The Assault Essay: Topic 1 – Violence The historical novel „The Assault“ by Harry Mulisch is a story based on the Nazi regime of Holland at nearly the end of the second World War. Anton Steenwijk was leading a peaceful life with his family as usual, but one day, Fake Ploeg, a Dutch authority closely associated with the Nazis, was found to be shot dead in front of his house, which leads to the killing of his parents and his temporary imprisonment. After he is released, he leads his life as usual, but then a sequence of events that uncover some disturbing facts about the night happens. Throughout the book, various themes can be found which Harry Mulisch successfully integrates, and undoubtedly, the most important seems to be violence. Violence, it both its most obvious and subtle forms, plays an integral part, serving as the basis of the story overall.
He reminds me of the famous comedian, Chris Rock as he tries to tell Cain not to worry, because once he gets the book deal, they’ll move to a better neighborhood. But every time Cain has to go to the center for rehab, Andrew is not always there to go with him. Compared to what his little brother wears, Andrew is spiffier; he richly clads in black shoes, a white long sleeve shirt with black dress pants. Angela Rodriguez has also done a great job with the make-up. The best actor is Andrew Dillemuth, who plays the younger brother.
The very same type of ending was seen when Holden recalled the movie he watched about the Englishman who had lost his memory and his response to it. He describes the movie as, “don’t see it if you don’t want to puke all over yourself” (138). His response to the movie most likely would have been because of how Holden had believed that Allie was somehow going to get through a terrible situation, which was clearly explained in the movie that Holden watched, but since Allie did
Catholic priests and nuns were also Nazi targets. Out of the four DVD’s that we had watched, the one which had the most impact on me was Boy in the Striped Pyjamas because it shows how unaware the people outside of the concentration camps are of what is really happening in the world and what they are not helping to stop. The main characters are Shmuel (Jewish kid), Bruno (the boy), Elsa (the mum), Ralf (the officer and dad) and Gretel (the sister). In the movie The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas it shows viewers how Jewish people were actually treated. The movie also shows how soldiers tried to keep what they were doing to the Jewish people a secret.
