The Cook the Thief His Wife and Her Lover
We watched the film The Cook the Thief His Wife and Her Lover today. I thought the film was good although I probably wouldn't watch it again.
I noticed that bold colours were used in this film. Red was used predominantly in the eating area, green in the kitchen and white in the toilets. I also noticed that the colours of the wife's dresses change colour corresponding to the room that she's in. The lighting looked very much like what you would see on stage, very saturated. The coloured lighting set the mood of the scenery to an extreme which made it very theatrical. The other main thing that made it very theatrical was how the film was divided up into days like a series of scenes with the curtain closing at the end of the film.
