SCOD: “He was my brother.”

SCOD: “He was my brother.” Can't Post

Mae Govannen, my friends.

You can find the full-sized images here and here.
As always, feel free to answer any or all the questions.

1. In the first shot, and in practically all of this scene, the camera seems to be looking at it from the hobbits’ point of view. Do you think this is to remind you that they are smaller than everything else around them?

2. In the second shot, we are looking at Faramir’s flashback of finding Boromir, his brother, dead. How did you feel when you saw this?

3. Also in the second shot, and the whole scene here, the filmmakers have altered the colour into shades of green and blue.
I think this may have to do with Faramir’s connection with Númenor, showing his resemblance to them greatly in this scene.
Why do you think the filmmakers chose this?

4. Any other thoughts or comments?

......"Since the first time I met you,
..I couldn't seem to forget you.
.......And lately I seem to find,
..That you're always on my mind.
.......Whenever I see you smile,
..It makes my life so very worthwhile.
......And ever since the very start,
..You have always been there in my heart.
..Then I heard that you felt the same way,
....................................................................And those words were so easy to say."

my two cents [In reply to] Can't Post

1) I have to say this is one of the parts of the movie where the effect of the different heights does work relatively worse to other scenes. Frodo and Sam look "copy/pasted" infront of the waterfall and the moving men.

2) It was not really necessary to show the vision... Mr. Wenham's telling was compelling enough imho.

3) Well, the vision/dream certainly indicates that there is more to Faramir and knowing his family's history the connection to Numenor is a logical conclusion.

4) Although I am not a fan of showing the vision, it is good to give Faramir a very sympathetic moment here. Since the film-makers chose to get him much more tempted by the One Ring (THANK GOD! imho), this balances him out quite nicely and we never really see him as a simple jerk, even when he decided to take Frodo to his father.

I interpret the second cap [In reply to] Can't Post

As being visualized purely as a memory. I personally doubt that this is exactly how the setting looked when Faramir discovered Boromir in real-time. This is more so how Faramir remembers it: bleak, dried up, cold, distant and empty. Very chilling, if you ask me.
