This film features massive thorns, tangled tree roots, landscapes of trees and waterfalls, and the mystical creatures that inhabit the land. Foster states that “...landscape and architecture and weather … merged as neatly with mood and tone to set a story in motion” (Foster 166). In the movie, the thorns and tangled roots immediately set a foreboding and gloomy tone. Foster mentions that geography not only includes physical surroundings, but also the people that live there.

This brilliant film about watching the neighbours simultaneously represents a self-reflexive film about the cinema and filmmaking. “[…] Jeff embodies the activity and passivity of both the film maker and the spectator; the director creates and waits, while the viewer
Regardless of my views on the outcome of this film, its content also has a lot of storytelling within its deep subject matter. Films today usually forego character development and story progression as improvement in technology and visual effects would be the only effective instrument in catching the eye of the audiences. It is rare nowadays that films would tell great epic stories, without the extensive use of visuals. Therefore my full praise can only go to the innovative technical aspect of the film balanced well with concise story
This essay will look at the film techniques of narration, setting and special effects including how the director applies them into Amélie, and how these influence the film, creating it into a modern fairy tale. The director uses the technique of narration to help create the film Amélie into a modern fairy tale. At the very beginning of movie the narrator presents each of the characters – describing their likes, dislikes and quirks.

The screenplay is crisp in its writing and the movie moves along briskly as it hits all the beats with precision, though it suffers from under-developed characters and often at times using scenes which lead to nowhere. Baltasar and the writers Mark Medoof, Simon Beaufoy & Justin Isbell handicapped the movie from reaching its summit and figured the awe-inspiring spectacle of Everest and its visual would carry the film. We are left with a bit of a disappointment that the film could have been more. The movie is a definite watch for the visuals which transport you to the top of the world. Overall a finely made film but little care in handling and it would have surely got this film to the summit it set out to
