You’re a loner. You keep your distance. You travel freely through foreign lands. You’re rootless. You’re very comfortable here with your glass of Scotch, but you’re just as comfortable sleeping in a cave with rebels or sharing dinner in some hole-in-the-wall noodle shop. Your closest friends are strangers. You understand that tight bonds can make you vulnerable, so you’re careful not to have any. And that’s why you’re so conflicted about me. You need me. And you hate that about yourself, because it makes you vulnerable.
Ever since I first saw Izetta a single scene always stuck out in my
mind. A scene that immediately grabs your attention and simultaneously makes
you laugh and smile at Izetta and Finé’s antics and then brings you back down
to the reality of their situation. However, the more I came back to the scene
the more I realized just how well thought out and clever it was. It’s not even
2 minutes long but it manages to carry an overarching theme throughout: Izetta’s
view of Finé and their relationship with each other. Everything that the scene
does from its’s color composition to its camera movements, to its body language
is set up to expand upon that theme.
