The second scene I have examined is the restaurant scene. The first shot establishes the scene, as a restaurant. We see Anna at the table dressed in red with her head down. The table is the centre of the shot. We home in on the table and focus on Anna. The camera gradually zooms in on the table as Dr. Crow walks in quickly and apologises. Anna appears to look up at him. By this time an over the shoulder shot has been established. We only see his face, not hers. We can’t see the lack of reaction on her face as Dr. Crow sits down to talk to her. As she lifts her head up she moves it despondently to the side. This gives the impression that she is upset with Dr. Crow. He says “I thought you meant the other Italian restaurant I asked you to marry me in.” then tilts his head quizzically to side to try to gauge her expression. She does not respond. The lack of response suggests that she is unimpressed with his excuse. He sits down mouthing the word “O.K”. He appears to acknowledge that she is ignoring him and the audience thinks that too. He tries again, “I’m sorry I just don’t seem to be able to keep track of time.” He is tired, “and I didn’t have a very good session today” sighs “they’re both so similar, same mannerisms, same expressions etc”. When she still doesn’t respond the audience thinks she’s annoyed because he’s discussing his work rather than focusing on her. Dr. Crow shakes his head and leans back, “I think it might be some kind of abuse…” he continues to discuss the case with Anna. Here we move into an interview shot. This suggests that she’s listening to him but also moves the focus away from Anna and onto Dr. Crow. The conversation continues but Anna never speaks. She’s still annoyed and Dr. Crow is dominating the conversation anyway. A waitress walks past the table, placing the bill on the table. She faces Anna. Dr. Crow tries to take the bill, but Anna gets it first and writes a cheque. It looks like Anna is snatching the bill away from him because she is still angry. Anna sighs heavily then looks up saying “Happy anniversary”. It appears that she is being sarcastic and moody, when really she is upset and emotional. She is clearly upset and gets up and leaves without another word. She appears to be storming off when in reality she is just leaving.
In the above essay I have explained clearly and it detail the techniques used in the two scenes.
