The purpose of this essay was to inform the reader of how the movie didn’t exactly have the same detail like the book. It’s very rare for a movie to have this much similarities to the book because most book and movies doesn’t have a lot of similarities. That’s why most people didn’t pick either the book or the movie they picked both. Anyways, both the book and the movie are great. Once you get out the theater you will bewildered on what you saw.
The moral of the movie for me, is that you should trust your instincts: Höfgen knew the Nazi’s were no good, but he got involved with them anyway and in the end, it didn’t work out well for him. I think this is also the moral message that this movie wants to bring across. That and, stick to what you know. Höfgen was a great actor, but he shouldn’t have tried to interfere with politics as well, that only caused trouble for him. The film is provocative culturally or politically, it forces you to judge the situation and make decisions for yourself, it shows a bad side of the Nazi’s, but it is way too late to do anything about them.
In the novel, suspense is demonstrated a lot more then in the movie because in the movie they don’t spend much time explaining how the characters are feeling at certain points. It says, “Heart pumping against the dust.” (p.111) This is when Chirgurh finds Llewyn for the first time and is standing in front of his door. It causes more suspense because in the movie they didn’t say that his heart was pumping which made us think that the situation is not as intense as shown in the novel. Also in the novel the author goes more into depth as how the characters
It is rare to find perfect harmony in both. Usually, I try to read the book before I see the movie because I find it disappoints me in the reverse. Fully capturing the essence of a novel on film can be very challenging. Novels, in general, offer more background and insight and allow more time for character development. The best way to decide if the mediums are closely related is to do a side by side comparison and see if the movie can hold the same value.
Oskar Werner is wonderful in the lead. But Truffaut made the mistake of putting Julie Christie in two roles in the same film, which was very confusing, and he eliminated some of the other characters: Clarisse McClellan and Faber the Philosopher and the Mechanical Hound. I mean, you can’t do without those!” Other than the characters in the story, including the score and alternate ending of the film, the movie was superlative. The characters in the story have precise roles and by leaving them out/altering them from the movie hinders the characterization and the originality of Bradbury’s novel. The major alterations in Truffaut’s film deals with the characters and their significance to the novel and movie.
Readers around the world have focused their attention to the most famous books like, the Harry Potter Series or maybe even The Davinci Code. Some do not realize that books that are not really conversed about are the most interesting. Harry Potter and The Davinci Code may be very entertaining books since one focuses on the supernatural and the other religion, but neither books talk about past, “deep” history. Two books that do go back to historical facts are Night and When the Emperor Was Divine. The New York Times has said that the novel, Night, was “A slim volume of terrifying power.” The Los Angeles Times has also said that, When the Emperor Was Divine, is, “a gentle, understated novel…has more power than any other I have read about this time.” Both reviews express that the two novels express some type of strong emotion that impacts the readers and also the reviewers.
An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge: * An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge Story and Movie Comparison. Though the film version of An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge is very accurate when compared to the short story version, there were aspects of the story that were missing from the film. For example, the second chapter of the short story which explains why Peyton Farquhar was being hung in the first place is not even alluded to in the film. If there is not a reason for Farquhar’s execution, the story would be more confusing for the audience who has not read the short story. However, the lack of an explanation can make the story more personal because it is left up to the audience to make their own assumptions as to why he is being hung.
However this film has just the right balance of facts and entertainment to suit both the critics and also the responders. This satisfies the criteria to make an excellent film. The historical accuracy of this film is yet to be determined, because of the many differing varieties of the original strain of legend. Finding the original legend is nearly impossible because of the fact that at that time information was
Visualize a world where books and unique thoughts are forbidden and or heavily restricted as the government attempts to keep individuals from thinking for themselves. While most would dismiss this situation as impossible, in Ray Bradbury’s famous novel Fahrenheit 451, this “unfathomable” dystopian is considered normal, every day life. Although the content and description of the futuristic story make the novel moving, the amazing use of symbolism throughout the chronicle is what truly gives the book its profound significance. Bradbury warns his audience what may happen if novels and society’s ability to be inimitable are ripped away by incorporating the symbols of Guy Montag’s rebirth in the river, how replacing Mildred’s blood did not revitalize her soul, and the sieve and the sand to gaining and retaining facts and knowledge. One event that occurs during times of traumatic change is the renaissance or rebirth of an individual.
In the graph we can see that the aesthetics starts from the lower end of the quality bar and increases to the high quality as time goes on. The storyline however begins at a higher quality and drops off as time goes on. In regards to facts to back these trends up, it is very hard to find factual evidence that the storyline side of the graph is true and correct. This is because any comments to do with the quality of a storyline are all based on particular peoples opinions. Some people are employed, as “critics” of movies however that does not mean that what they say about a particular film is fact, it is merely their own opinion.
