Quickshow 2: subjective states of being

Compared to other art forms, film excels in helping an audience experience — feel — a character’s subjective state of being. Jeunet’s Amelie uses many tools, some of which are outgrowths of surrealism, to help us understand what it feels like to be Amelie, as well as other characters in the film.

Clip out 4 short sequences that each use different techniques that allow us to quickly feel/understand/experience the character’s subjective state of being. Try to find at least two subtle examples that you think other students might not have noticed. Elements? Sound. Edits. Camera moves. Full-blown surrealism.
