Rebecca - "Scene where rebbeca confronts Mrs Danvers"

Extracts from this document...


Rebecca "Scene where rebbeca confronts Mrs Danvers" As I begin my essay I will firstly focus on how we get to a scene in the movie Rebecca. The movie begins with a young girl marrying a man called, Maximillian de Winter. They go to his house and the girl hears about the lifestyle of the house. She then persuades max to hold a party. Mrs Danvers the housekeeper encourages the girl to be dressed in an outfit of Max's ancestors. The girl presents herself to max and he is furious at her. She runs upstairs weeping and discovers Rebecca wore the dress at a previous ball. The scene opens with a medium shot of the girl and she is looking at the picture of Rebecca wearing the identical costume. She is in confusion to why Mrs Danvers hates her. The camera shot then changes to a long shot of Mrs Danvers walking into Rebecca's bedroom. Mrs Danvers doesn't look at the girl but from her body language she makes the girl want to follow her into the room. Mrs Danvers figure shows up a really well in this shot because she is in a dress and the walls outside the room are white. ...read more.


The girl runs to Mrs Danvers to confront her and her voice is loud and furious. But Mrs Danvers looks like she has done nothing in the wrong. The Music now calms to add into the effect. The camera then focuses on both characters for a few seconds at a time. The music doesn't change and is still in a calm form. They both begin disagreeing and from the girl's movement we can simply see that she is angry with Mrs Danvers. Although Mrs Danvers still doesn't move and just stands there as if she were not there. Mrs Danvers then reacts to the girl and walks towards her. Her eyes are really focused on the girl and she looks like she is losing her mind. Rebecca is now really scared and is weeping a lot. The camera then changes to a medium shot. Mrs Danvers is threatening the girl now. We can only see the girl's face but we can hear Mrs Danvers creepy voice in the background. The camera changes again to a long shot and we can see Mrs Danvers standing over the girls shoulder and this is a better way of intimidating her and making her more worried. ...read more.


Mrs Danvers finally persuades the girl to walk towards the window. The girl grabs onto the curtain for help. The music is staying on the same note. Mrs Danvers is telling the girl to leave, but there is a part of her which is forcing the girl to jump. There is now an extreme close up which helps us see the girl's emotions really well. While next to, Mrs Danvers whispers suggestive words for the girl to jump. There is dreamy music and it makes you think that the girl is in a dream and Mrs Danvers is hypnotising her to jump. The Music comes together with the repeating of "why don't you?" and then a view of the sea. Mrs Danvers is now closer to the girl and her eyes tell us that she thinks she has won. The girl is now leaning forward more and leaning outside the windowsill. A big explosion then snaps the girl out of her hypnotic dream. She then cries for help to her husband max who is running about outside and realises she shouldn't be letting Danvers succeed. She runs off and Mrs Danvers head movement shows she has lost and looks disappointed and lonesome. The scene finishes with a close up of the hysterical Mrs Danvers. ...read more.
