very memorable moment [In reply to] Can't Post

1) How well does this image portray what Eowyn is feeling? Do you think it would convey the same sort of emotion if you didnít know the context?
I remember that very soon some people show up that steal the scene more or less and they begin to greatly influence Eowyn's feelings and decisions. It's hard to say much that is definitive. It is true that crops aren't visible but the shot shows a lot of distant background filled with wide stretching open fields and we know from other scenes that there is civilization out there. We can't see Eowyn's face but we an tell that since her back is to Edoras that this is the least likely place that she is focused on at the moment. Maybe she was looking for help or some sign of hope ... or maybe I just think that because I remember that such a thing is just what turns up.

2) We can see huge swathes of the plains of Rohan in this shot. Is this how you think the environs of Rohanís capital city Ė and Rohan in general Ė should look? Do you think it looks a little empty? (For instance, there donít appear to be any crops a-growing anywhere in this shot)
I see the mountains but there is nothing definitive to focus on.

3) The flag is shown just as it starts to fly away from Eowyn here. Do you like what the writers did with that?
I haven't a clue to be honest. But doesn't that flag end up leading to the hope she ends up focusing on?

4) Music question! Through this scene (from Eowyn first running out of the room) we have what seem to be the first proper statements of Eowynís and Rohanís themes. Any comments on the use of the themes and the audience's first impressions of them? Are they important in conveying the emotion of the scene?

I could literally hear it in the back of my mind just while looking at the picture! That tells you the power of mixing musical themes with highly emotional moments ... or maybe it's just a Howard Shore thing?

5) Any further comments?
The view is quite beautiful and the moment is breath-taking.
