RS - Sample Opening - Four Weddings and a Funeral

 Four Weddings and a Funeral (Mike Newell, 1994)
Budget: £3.5m
US Box Office: $52.7m
UK Box Office: £25.5m

I deconstructed this opening with Emily Moore
  • Non Diagetic Music: Violins, string, trumpet, slow music signifies romance
  • Font: Sans Serif
  • See Hugh in a messy room signifies rom com
  • Binary opposites with Hugh and his room mate we can denote this because when their alarm clocks go off, one gets right up but the other stays in bed
  • Contrast in clothes, one in striped pj's and other isn't sleeping in anything
  • Woman in the room signifies her status, very posh room, signifies her social class. The mise en scene provides anchorage with the statue, flowers and the mirror
  • Diagetic sounds, the cars, the talking
  • The men wear shirts and ties signifies social class (upper)
