Thechoice of styles and role of characters in any movies have greatimportance to develop flow of story line. Every character has a dutyin a film and use of visual, audio or musical instruments impacteffects such as emphasis and creation of suspense. Also, employinglanguage styles like humor add quality or interest, for instance, tolaugh with or at others.
Thesisstatement:The use of theatrical set pieces and film techniques have added greatinterest to viewers of Election film by Johnnie To
Theemphasis on characterization shape my response to election film inthat more details about the roles of characters in the movie can beobtained. I get to understand thecapabilities of actors by combiningelements like attitudes in the scenes. Each character performs aunique role, like the gangsters in the film emphasize a state of fearand anxiety in the movie (Murray,2013).Thus, they depict a condition in a world where evil people imposefear and all they think of is money and honor. A triad society getsportrayed in the movie, and it’s through criticism that thegangstersexpress the exercise of power for many years. The focus ofthe film on vicious campaigns waged by Simon Yam shows steppingstones to leadership. Thus, without the emphasis on theseindividuals, there is less to learn about them.
Figurativelanguage like humor has been employed in the film to build the storyand to create the need of viewers to explore more. I see humor andirony language absorbing in that it is dark trope insinuatingnegative support. For instance, the cops are regarded as the badguys. The gangsters in town have the power than the state authoritysuch that it’s hard for police to end the regime (Murray,2013).The only thing a local authority can do is to keep peace in town bypreventing violence when two gang societies rise against each other.Also, there is humor when Jimmy engages in a dialogue to order foodin a hotel but can’t pronounce the Mandarin words. The languagethus, imposes effect of expectation on more of character’s actionsto manage survivals in the movie.
Inconclusion, Johnnie To’s films have interesting scenes that depictreal life scenarios. For instance, the wrong people, the gangstersacquire power over the actual ruling authority, police. Use of humor,camera movement, music, and visual effects develop film interest onviewers.
