The use of a pale actor who does not directly fit this stereotype it adds to the movie. The setting of this movie is North, but the way that it is portrayed it seems to be an alien like world (Magennis). Historically, it is very difficult to find the middle of a film while still keeping the history apart of the movie. The mixture of legends and myths are more common placed into movies by the directors and creators. The addition of this information is to make the movie more interesting, but at the same time it takes away from the historic aspects of the middle ages for example.
The elder one chooses to be with his father while the younger one sides with his mother. Each parent’s shortcomings then gets projected and magnified through the sons. The movie is about conflicts; between the couple, the child and the parent, the intellectual and philistine, identity one manufactures and one’s true self. The parents are so preoccupied with their problems that the children are left lost. It is interesting how they take their children and pit them against one another many times without realization.
While they are walking Songsam asks Tokchae about how many people he’s killed, avoided the question he reveals he was forced into the vice-chairmen position (Sun-won 2). Songsam tells Tokchae to go to the field to rouse up some cranes which Tokchae believes he’s going to get executed. Yet he lets him go choosing friendship over orders or humanity over war. You can put this in a bigger perspective relating to all wars and conflict. This is one of the ways “Cranes” was different than “The Sniper.” Now for the difference for “The Sniper” is that humanity over war wasn’t there.
The three films, Rashomon, Gone Girl and Memento are successfully in illustrating how “History relies on facts and their context to interpret events”. I will be examining how facts alone can result in more than a single truth, and the importance of facts and its context in the interpretations of the events. Urry (1996) said that “There is no evidence that sites are uniformly read and passively accepted by visitors”, as facts could be interpreted differently based on individual perspectives. In this case, both sites and facts can refer to physical objects or actions that had taken place as both can be seen as evidence. The three films demonstrated how relying on facts alone can result in a variety of truths.
But the real reason to go is so the little brother can learn bravery and independence. However, on the surface, the destination is the Tree of life, but in hindsight, the protagonist is just attempting to find a way to a real “ home” in the story. The “ home” being what they ultimately wanted and find, the peace, the lost family, bravery and support of each other, as well as the understanding and acceptance of tragedy in life. Now, the place that the two brothers belong is actually home instead of the Tree of Life. Therefore, the journey to the Tree of Life is a stepping stone to self-knowledge and an acceptance of the realities of life.
The setting of the story, the facial expressions on those who are in the painting, and what are the clothing articles that shown in the painting and their color. These things are what make the story come together in the viewer's mind, they are small things and objects, but they make the whole story make sense. I will be focusing on these aspects when discussing the paintings. The first piece of art that I will be discussing
Another piece of textual evidence found to support the claim is the connection made between the two main characters throughout the film. One would assume that the unique bond shared between them would lead to the start of a formal relationship, but to our surprise the couple was not united at the end of the film. Again, supporting the claims of an
Because of this photo of the narrator, they can recognize each other without saying, and then they “run toward each other, all three of us embracing, all hesitations and expectations forgotten.” It is the magic of the photo, it is more the magic of family connection. In this setting, their first meeting is smooth since the photo of Jingmei connects them well. Finally, the last photo in the story is a flash of the Polaroid which is taken for these three girls, it is like a picture of the family, represents the moment of reuniting. The narrator says the twins look like their mother and in that second, she realizes the family culture within her, which she did not understand before. She watches the photos together with her sisters, “eager to see what develops” (173).
A frame story helps with the development of the plot and add additional background information of the characters’ pasts. The author wraps the frame story into the overall plot by making the beginning of the story the leading up point to the frame. “I could tell you something that happened when you were a baby”(Carver 1). Involving the frame story gives insight as to the background of the boy and girl’s live prior to their separation. Inside the frame story, the boy and girl are young, recently married adults who are learning the true meaning of parenting.
Historical elements, if executed right, is a far better setting for any form of medium such as film, television series or animation. Example of animation’s greatest works are based on historical settings. Studio’s such Disney and Studio Ghibli are perfect examples of a succesful studio that produced animated film that uses historical elements. Studio Ghibili’s Hayao Miyazaki, is considered one of the greatest animators and directors of all time. Many of Miyazaki’s films depicts beautiful scenery of vast historical elements, his way of storytelling and the way he directs a film is very entertaining, he often sets his films in Japanese-influenced versions of European cities.
