In cinemas in Italy there is still a half-movie break, which on the one hand I hate, on the other hand I use it to analyze the first part of the film.
The lady sitting next to me, had never entered the cinema in the Duomo, in the center of Milan, which was once a theater.
Place that I prefer to the modern multiplexes, because the atmosphere of the old theater is a good company while watching the film.
At break I pointed out to the lady the change of colors of some clothes and objects worn by the protagonist: usually dark green or blue or blue, all cold shades of water, these objects, like the headband, the coat and the shoes, became red after the protagonist started falling in love or she made love with the amphibious creature,
I pointed out how often, in objects and furniture, blue, dark green and blue came into contrast with red, often identified in a single object.
The lady thanked me, she doubts that in the future she will be able to grasp certain details in the future films she will watch, because she claims that to me it is natural, that I have a third eye with which I watch the film in a different way from a spectator .
She encouraged me to write screenplays, how I feel I must do and she told me:
“Do it, because you are brought.”
I will do it.
The film we saw was “The Shape of Water.”
