Short Film Analysis

• The narration is told through the dialogue of the actors. The reason that it was done like this is because the story is about one main character, and the other character’s dialogue relates to the main character’s situation. So, the story tells itself.
• The implied narrator is everyone in the story. This is because everyone in the story has a part in the story and therefore their part is the story.
• There are no spectators in this story.
• The information that we provide is our general interpretation that “Hell” is a place that you don’t want to be at, and that only bad people go there.
• The timeline of this story is mostly based on the present, however there is one moment when a flashback shows why the character is where he is. The form is formalistic because it follows normal formulas in film in which a flashback is used to further explore the backround of the main character.
• If this film had a drama it would most likely be dramatic however I’m not sure if this is true. I believe that the film was made in order to teach its audience a lesson the lesson that every person should be selfless or else they shall be condemned.
• This film shows that now people are very materialistic and no longer can see a value in life. Without that value people don’t deserve to live.
• This film says that humans tend to be selfish and that this is not how we should be. That we should try to give everyone their rights and that no one has the right to take away another persons life for their own selfish reasons.
