Then, both of their souls get on a train, and the train brings them and audience to their past. Fireflies and the candy tin play a significant role in the movie, and they represent the love and fellowship between Seita and Setsuko. Additionally, the director use fireflies and the candy tin as a clue, and they make audience wonder the story about them. A sorrow scene like burning Setsuko’s body helps to send a strong anti-war message to the audience. Grave of the Fireflies is based on a true life story during World War II, and it stimulates a deep thought to the audience successfully with flashback, top quality and realistic, symbolism, and the meaning and message behind it.
Although during the scene there are no voice-overs there is sound in many other ways including background music, rhythmic and rhyming songs, and sound effects. At the begging of the scene there is rain outside and this head, it creates a gloomy feel and a boring atmosphere of sensibility. This is contrasted with the upbeat music later played when the cat starts to sing and the stage lights appear. The party-like music creates a fun atmosphere livening up the scene. The song that The Cat is singing is also happy and upbeat, gradually getting faster and sillier as it goes on.
Jeff reflects our feelings towards the antagonist, Thorwald. The set design of Rear Window, which the construction was supervised by Hitchcock personally, helps to create the atmosphere of a cinema. When watching a movie, we are engaged with the mise-en-scene of the film that we forget our personal realities and Jefferies too, shows this depth of interest when observing his neighbourhood. While there are various distractions in a cinema of modern day, cell phone ringing and people talking, we tend to tune them all out to focus on what is happening on screen. Lisa, Jeff’s love interest, engages with Jeff in a kissing
His naive replacement Mills, played by Brad Pitt, is optimistic of his new life in this city and thinks he can make a difference. Together they hunt down a sadistic killer known as John Doe who leaves behind chilling clues. But it soon becomes clear that Mills’ optimism was misplaced in a climactic twist. During the opening sequence we are effectively introduced to Somerset as he prepares himself for work. We are given an insight into his character through his mannerisms.
However, Gordie doesn’t allow his friend to quit and he ends up helping Vern to get to the other side of the bridge narrowly missing the train. This gains Gordie the respect of his friends and makes the audience breathe a sigh of relief. It is the use of suspense in scenes like this one that makes the film entertaining for an audience. Humour is another entertaining feature of Stand By Me. Just when viewers think that things are too bleak, a little humour is added to relieve the tension.
One of the biggest cinematic elements used which helps create the beautiful love story in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is music. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (the song) by Henri Mancini plays every time the audience catches the two protagonists have a jolly time together. The scene involving the two enjoying each others’ company while out on the city of New York used this song to lighten the audiences attitude and really set the mood of the scenario. By creating such a high spirited atmosphere the director takes this opportunity to connect the audience and the main characters love. He also uses this moment to build the audience’s affection for the protagonists in order for the following scene (involving Holly’s bad news about leaving for
This main character is so confident about himself and his madness, moreover, he is completely sure that he has done the right thing by killing the strange eyed old man. He tries to explain that this murder wasn’t without reason, he says that the old man’s “one eye” was “evil” (lines 9-10-11) and this mainly caused him to plan the crime. The narrator explains in detail, how carefully he visits the old man every midnight and how mad he gets and reacts when he sees that vulture eye. The narrator has a quite strange relationship with the old man, since he visits him also every morning and asks how he passed the night. This shows the changeable psychology of the murderer, most probably because of the mental “disease” he mentioned in the beginning of the story (line 2).
The narrator attempts to reassure his audience he is of sound mind. For example, the narrator says “If still you think me mad, you will think so no longer when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body.” Another irony in the story is that the narrator refers to how he loves the old man and was never so kind to him as he was right before the murder. This is ironic because he loves the old man by the systematically plans to murder him. Poe uses imagery throughout the story by referencing the clock and time as a way to describe how slowly he moved. The narrator says “A watches minute hand moves more quickly than did mine”, the narrator sees himself as a clock, counting down the old man’s
He has a good connection with other people to figure out everything’s he needs to know. Charlie is a wise man and can teach you a good lesson about friendship.

After the group of boys hurt Charlie and he learns what they did to him it made him angry.
Tsotsi: A Clichéd Redemption Of A Criminal Tsotsi is a cruel, ruthless criminal. Yet, with the use of effective filming and storyline, he evokes sympathy at the end of the film when he is arrested. The audience believes that he has changed into a better man in a matter of days. This is very cliché and typical of any film that shows the evolution of a bad character into a good character. I think that the audience is very naive for feeling sympathy for Tsotsi because he is a criminal that was involved with the murder of two people; Butcher and Zachariah.
