As Perry walks thinking to himself about what just happened a lady jumps out of her car and yells Michael’s name. It was Perry’s girlfriend from high school; she jumps on him and gives him a big hug. In one moment Perry recalls a random night that he would never have thought about if it wasn’t for him remembering the smell of her “spearmint kisses.” No words were needed to be said, all it took was his nostrils inhaling the sweet smell of her fresh breath and the memories flashed through his head.

As Henry, Jimmy, and Tommy sit at Tommy’s mothers dinner table with the dead body in the trunk, Henry appears to be very anxious, and Tommy’s mother inquires him about it. This uncertainty and fear can also be remembered in the very first scene in the movie when he is the only one who appears alert and ready as his two “co-workers” drift off in the passengers with a dieing man in the trunk. I also believe this is why the movie begins with this scene and is then shown again at the end of the flashback. It is another very important scene, in addition to the scene near the beginning with Henry and Karen entering through the secret entrance. Many other examples can be observed in short, such as the first person view of a pistol looking down your face from Henry Hill’s wife after she discovers he is cheating, when Henry is strung out on drugs the day of his arrest and we get a first person view of a helicopter above, and the focus on Henry Hills cross necklace as he picks up Karen for their first date.

The intercultural communication competence is seen by both Toula and Gus having the motivation to make the relationship work although they don’t always know how.
