It is set in Verona, Italy, which is where the play was based in the script. Zeffirelli’s version was aimed at people who wanted a film that was basically the same as the play, but with better scenery. Even though the play was meant for all audiences to enjoy, generally Zefferelli aimed at adults like the play did. The biggest and most obvious difference between the two movies is the era. Luhrmann aimed at a younger age group, and he made it a lot more exciting and violent with a lot more action using the best special effects possible at the time it was made.
Danilo E. Chaves ESSAY ANSWER TO QUESTION #1 Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera and Robert Flaherty’s Nanook of the North were both conceived as educational devices. While both attempt to give viewers a new perspective on filmmaking, both differentiate significantly from each other regarding the delivered message, the context and the aesthetics. Vertov’s film aims to increase people’s awareness about the process of filmmaking, while Flaherty’s attempts to revive the viewers long lost “innocent eyes” by focusing on a preconceived Romantic perspective. As an important part of the Soviet Cultural Revolution, Vertov’s works were conceived mainly to transform people’s consciousness regarding political and social matters. Increasing the critical awareness and thought of the masses towards the deception of film was one of Vertov’s main goals as a filmmaker.
Thus, the 1996 version of Romeo and Juliet presents the prologue as a television report. The reporter takes over Chorus’s role while retaining the Chorus’s function, as in plays, of providing commentary to help the audience follow the performance. This replacement also adds more trueness and immediacy to the story for its modern audiences. The last two lines of the prologue are left out in the television report, because they are specifically written for the play. After the television report, the film repeats the prologue along with background music and scenes of the city where the story is taking place.
Romeo and Juliet What is the difference in Luhrmann’s and Zefferelli’s movie? In Luhrmann’s movie his version is more modern, dramatic, and uses visual thoughts. Zefferelli’s has more of Shakespeare’s vision. This gives it more of a classic feel to it. For fans of Shakespeare, Zefferelli’s should be the one to watch, but for a more action filled modern Romeo and Juliet then Luhrmann’s is the best.
Together with his brown tie suit, the Omega watch is perfect for a gentleman. Wearing this watch will make customers feel more graceful because they are wearing a costly and high-class product. Besides, for people who don’t pay attention to James Bond’s equipment, they can see that from the start to the end of the movie when James Bond holds M dying in his hand, the watch is still on his wrist and is working properly. After many fights and traveling in different weather, the Omega Watch is still running. This creates an argument
First of all, the plot of the movie was somewhat similar to the play. Madden did however, change how he told the story. His intentions involved adding more scenes and rearranging them in a different order than what the play did. For instance, he actually filmed the scene when Catherine told her father that she was going back to college in his classroom; whereas, in the play this took
There are also economic and legal factors: Shakespeare is helpfully outside copyright law as well as interesting to adapt. Shakespeare on screen gradually became part of the establishment, reflecting its growing academic respectability. Shakespeare on screen is now in its second century and the reasons why Shakespeare has so long been considered adaptable have been variously discussed. According to Robert Hamilton Ball, Shakespeare’s dramas were considered ideal material for cinema in the early 20th century because the presence of Shakespeare on film raised the contemporary estimation of film. A successful adaptation of Shakespeare must then convey an anxiety of influence (Adaptation form Text to Screen, Screen to Text) P 31) an awareness that the reproduction is both dependent on and
Best of all, everything blends smoothly into an entertaining show. Film is hastily classified as a dramatic genre. Film can present several kinds of meaning at once. A film as a literary work can be used as a source for studying literature. The writer chooses film because through learning literature, especially drama, students get description about life, attitude, behavior and personality by giving life imitation and it will enable us to get something which is similar to our real life.
Explore the ways in which Shakespeare creates character in the first two scenes of Othello. What are the audience’s expectations of the two major characters discussed (Othello and Desdemona) and in what ways are these expectation met or challenged by their eventual appearance on stage? In the two opening scenes of Othello the personalities and machination of the play’s key characters are revealed through a combination of dialogue, action and metaphor and it is these early insights into character that lay the foundations for the audience’s appreciation of the rest of the play as their perceptions are challenged and ingrained ideologies overturned. More importantly than how individual characters are introduced is the way they are shown to interact with one another. In the first two acts base human emotions such as anger and envy as well as crucial areas of human behaviour (deceit, for example) are used to encapsulate the interpersonal rapports and conflicts between the principal roles.
Although the Shakespearian feel was definitely effected by having a very modern twist. In the soliloquy, Hamlet films himself with a camera. The production itself was very technologically based, but by using the camera in the speech, it elevated the importance of the scene. Doran did this because he knew that the audience knows that if something is recorded, it implies that it is important or worthwhile to keep. By placing the camera in the speech it made the audience
