This scene [In reply to] Can't Post

1.) What's being told visually/physically here? (Note posture, framing, etc.)

It's a nice picture of them. She's tall and straight, as described in the books, and he is bent over in his usual crouch, as if he's tired, bent by travel and labor. I think the whole scene was good, and it really helped their dynamic. Sure it's a bit silly about the awful soup, but hey, she's never cooked in her life. He's used to bad food, and he's never done anything but fend for himself. The fact that he appreciates the gesture is a testament to his character, and the way Viggo played it was just perfect. Miranda Otto was very human in these kinds of scenes. She was well cast, did a nice job acting, and was also well directed. Was it demeaning? No, it was the fact that she felt some kinship with him. When she learns he's 'one of the Dunedain' you can almost see her face thinking through that, and it's clear she understood the import of what he said.

2.) Thoughts on the setting? I love landscape like this - it reminds me of just a few of the sights I've seen the past couple summers in British Columbia.
Kinda makes you want to scale those distant mountains, eh? Or is just me?

The beauty of the backgrounds was shown again. The mountains are just awesome.

3.) Any other thoughts?

NZ was the perfect choice of backgrounds and environments. We're very lucky that they could use as much of the landscape as they did. It made the world of M-E really come to life, because there were some 'natural' features like the occasional fly or bug on someone's hair, or the wind would stir their hair, or the natural light would hit the characters in a certain way. The integration of the scenic beauty with the action was very carefully done.
