Some critics even saw the film as a perversion of the novella and that the relationship between Aschenbach and Tadziu was ruined through the visual aspects film. Although many aspects of the film were interpreted negatively, the artistic nuance that is celebrated today was greatly driven by the audiovisuals and score that give a unique value to the film. Many aspects of the film are intended for a certain interpretation but instead are interpreted in a way that belittles the piece as a whole, luckily the audiovisuals and score used do not typically fall under this category. In fact the audiovisuals do a great job in connecting Visconti with the film and in creating content and context. The music also is a key aspect in the great success of the film because it expresses yearning for a unity of serenity and sensuousness, an important aspect necessary for the delivery of subtextual content.
This idea is supported by their travelling, and the apparent harshness of their situation, however there is little to sustain their being cowboys in later parts of the narrative. Perhaps this was intended by Stoppard, as a way of disorientating the audience, as would the lifeless setting in the play script. Using a camera gives the ability to show a particular image at a certain time and proximity, which lends significance to certain aspects of the film. In having the setting seem realistic, also an attribute of film, Stoppard has been able to accentuate the unrealistic parts of the storyline without losing a sense of realism. As the
The Giver Novel versus Movie Despite the difference between the two, The Giver, by Lois Lowery is more successful than the movie version of The Giver, screen written by Michael Mitnick. Some people may say that the movie is better but actually the novel is the real winner. Mitnick the screenwriter of the movie made a lot of changes from the novel to make the story more appealing to the audience. There are a lot of reasons he made those changes. The effects of the changes made the movie appealing also.
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.
Brandon FLOGGNAW 4/28/14 Period 1 ENG 9 R+J Movie Compare/Contrast Pros and Cons The two Romeo and Juliet movies were very unique and creative. The two movies were very different but still stayed true to the original play. The two movies barely changed to much in the movie, but they did still add a few things here and there. The two movies were very good, they were both very good adaptions of the original play. Even though the movies were very good adaptions, the movies did changes some things whether it was text or scenery.
The movie does grasp the basic story line of the novel but is sadly has limitations and weaknesses. The movie has altered many characteristics of Quoyle. In the movie, he appears to be dull and does not fit with everything described in the book. This makes the story less tragic and less extreme. Quoyle originally has two daughters in the novel, Sunshine and Bunny.
Perfume has many emphasising changes within the plot, many oversights and omissions of scenes from the film as well as sections from the novel; some obvious and large, others small and minor. The main purpose is due to the lack of time the film has, having to largely compress the timeline of ‘high important and major’ events, in order to signify and push forward the key concepts and main ideas from Tom Tykwer’s perspective in comparison to Suskind’s novel. The storyline in both book and film revolve around an unusual and original basis that captures and drags the reader/audience’s emotions, creating the feeling of obligation. The beginning of the film began with Grenouille enclosed and restricted in a jail cell- an event that was to happen much later during the timeline according to the storyline and novel. Director Tom Twyker chose to set the introduction of the film out this way as it created similar effect on the audience in comparison to the first paragraph of the book; it made you think to yourself how?
Although secondary characters are clearly less important in a novel than the protagonist, they nevertheless have a significant impact on every story. It may be their problem or problems which initially bring the protagonist closer to his/her love interest. It may be their influence, well-meaning or vindictive, that makes the situation better or worse. Interesting secondary characters are painted with broad strokes rather than fine details - though authors need to be careful, because the key word is “secondary.” Though these characters fill a valuable role, they can not hog the limelight. In The Sun Also Rises, by Ernest Hemingway, and To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, secondary characters such as Brett Ashley and Atticus Finch, are crucial, and play a key role in the progression of each story, and the themes in each.
Topher Newton A Study in Scarlet Comparison Both the literary text for “A Study in Scarlet” and the screenplay were both written about the same story but the two differ very much in the way they present and organize the story. The original text is very detailed and wordy while the screenplay is precisely crafted to present the story in a slimmed down version occurring in real cinematic time. The screenplay purposely leaves out certain aspects of the story that are both challenging to present visually and information that is just unnecessary or that can be implied. The entire first paragraph and some of the second of the text was completely thrown out for screenplay. This writing just provides background information on John Watson before he headed off to war in Afghanistan.
