Roundhay Garden Scene : What's your favourite scene?

What's your favourite scene?

Now I have only seen the original version, but from that I prefer the garden scene. What about you?

That's so bandwagon, Elvis. I prefer the part with the walking.

Re: What's your favourite scene?

Nah, man.. I think it drags out.. I always fall asleep during that part..

**MAJOR*SPOILER*ALERT**

I think the part where the couple turns (just as the bad edge starts to show) is a nice twist.

Re: What's your favourite scene?

Indeed so, but you shouldn't have spoiled the twist for the uninitiated.

All Fixed!


By the way I liked the film's soundtrack (An edited version of 2 min. silance) Didn't John Lennon do a later version of this on his "Life With the Lions" LP?

I fell asleep halfway through this film. It was too friggin long!

Re: What's your favourite scene?

I know! It was all SFX! And the performances were awful. I think it's time for a remake with Hugh Jackman and Jack Nicholson.

NOOOOOOOO!!!

Re: What's your favourite scene?

Well, it is a very subtle and meditative film. I lump it in the same category as, say, Andrei Rublov or 2001: A Space Odyssey. To really understand the movie, you have to pay attention to what's not being said--a lot of the movie is extraneous filler for the sake of being extraneous; what's really important is what's between the lines. Take, for instance, the seemingly unrelated prologue and how it precisely foreshadows and mirrors the climax. Everything that happens in the final four frames is laid out in the beginning three, so when everything is finally said and done it's as though an unshakable destiny has been fulfilled by God.

I sympathize with your criticism, though. Some of the plot-heavy subplots in the middle were tedious.

LOL! you guys are funny!

Re: What's your favourite scene?

Eh. I personally prefer the sequel. They went to a TRAIN STATION!! If that's not exciting, I don't know what is!

Re: What's your favourite scene?

Well, the garden scene is a must-see, but I thought that the blank screen which followed it really made a statement about the impermanence of the human experience, and almost has the edge.

Re: What's your favourite scene?

Wow. I just re-watched the film with that interpretation in mind, and it's like seeing it for the first time. I actually cried this time. Heartbreaking.

My second favorite was when the dude with a white-ish hat looked like he was dancing off. However, I thought the plot twist with the girl turning around was extremely moving. I totally didn't expect her to go with him, but it turned out she did. It was almost frustrating how long it took for the descision to be made. I almost cried of joy when it finally happened, and wanted to shout "Yes! She's going with him!". Powerful filmmaking.

Re: What's your favourite scene?

The best part is undoubtedly the man who was walking, he clearly had much acting experience, when he walked past the lady in the dress...wow. I was on the edge of my seat! what a cliffhanger to end the story!!

Definitely the second step the guy takes.

Re: What's your favourite scene?

My favorite scene is when the woman moves her left foot forward.

Re: What's your favourite scene?

When the woman turns around...it breaks my heart every time.

we can be heroes, just for one day

Re: What's your favourite scene?

Same here, it's just a classic scene in all of cinema. One can also not forget the incredible footwork of Adolphe le Prince.

Re: What's your favourite scene?

The turning part was very good but I found the whole lesbian subplot kind of disturbing, frankly.

Re: What's your favourite scene?

I liked it when the woman started to turn around.
