Arlington Road - L'inganno

Arlington Road - L'inganno

At beginning of the scene, we can see that there is a boy walking alone in the middle of the street. There are voices in his head, echoing, as he is moving and we know that he is trying to stay in conscious as he is dragging himself on the street. The first part, the imagine of the boy was blur as he walked weakly while holding his arm, but we only know for sure he was badly hurt when we noticed blood started to drip on the road and on his shoes. The intense in his eyes when the camera caught it was unbearable. We can see the pain he is going through and him trying to survive and stay focus on the street. He was sweating and his eyes rolling upwards as he tried to endure the pain. The echo gives us a glimpse of his memory on what might had happen before he was on the street. Phrases such as “what are you waiting for” and “are you chicken or what” shows that he might had got himself involve in a silly dare. It is obvious he is still traumatize by what might had happen to him and he sometimes looked back to see if there is anyone following him. In short, he most probable escaped from something and he started to move faster when he realised he might be followed. It is not until the man in the car grabbed him and asked what had happen did he only snapped out from his delusion and came back to reality. The sudden rush of pain he did not realise before made him cried in agony. The cry was unbearable and the man quickly took him into his car to send him to the hospital. There is a change of mood before and after the man showed up. Before, the whole scene was more on a suspend mode and the haunting whispers from the boy’s head. After, the whole scene was fast racing with the music beats pumping into our hearts. From the scene we can see that the man was scared and panicking which sets the mood to another level.
