Love this scene! [In reply to] Can't Post

What do you think of this image in terms of visual impact?
I love the blue colour palate and the simplicity of this scene. It perfectly symbolises the dedication of Frodo and Sam to each other. And as others mentioned, the scene in Mt Doom, which is all fiery and orange, compliments this one perfectly.


What about the substance? Is it just an illustration of how Frodo was able to catch Sam’s hand, or does it seem to represent more? If the latter, in what way?

The feeling I get with this scene is that both Sam and Frodo have been thrust into a whole other world, and the sound design and other-worldliness of the underwater represents that, imo. Their clasped hands show that they will pull eachother through it.

I also think it represents that at this stage in the journey, Frodo is the leader and Sam kind of relies on him being the one with the plan, but in the bookend scene, the roles have been reversed since Frodo is completely wasted by the ring at that stage, and Sam is the practical one who takes control.
