Thank you for the insight. This is great!
I still have a very precise curiosity regarding this just one scene, it has only 3 cuts. April sits on the stairs of the house; Franck arrives with the car. The kids play in the sun light, they are overexposed, as if to take out their reality, the screen is also cut in two by that tree in the middle of the frame. It is almost like a split screen. April runs in the frame, she is huge, she covers Franck entirely, Franck is small. The last frame with April and Franck, another vertical behind separates them. They kiss and Franck sits perfectly on that tree`s shape. Does it work like an edge, witch character with his side of the frame? Did you also choose not to show their feet on the ground, I mean they just came with an improbable plan, so they lost the grip on reality, and their real issues, oh well...
I am not going to interpret too much, or talk about Freud, childhood problems, mother issues and so on... Frank depicted as a boy, Leo how plays this character, he looks ageless in a way, young, boyish. I am maybe losing it, but still.
It seems to me that almost all the themes of the movie are to be found here, translated visually.
I apologize if I am too specific and maybe wrong, but it would mean a lot to me to know it, either way.
Thank you!
