Without ... ... middle of paper ... ...e book, Elizabeth is depicted as being sweet and intelligent, while in the book, she was depicted as being sometimes rude. A big difference between the book and the movie is that in the book, Darcy and Elizabeth were always surrounded by others, but in the movie, they could be found being by themselves a lot. This difference could be very pivotal to the meaning of the book. In the movie and book Pride and Prejudice, there are differences from the movie and the book. Some of the differences between the movie and the novel can be a direct cause of Joe Wright having his own opinions in regards to how he believes the message should be depicted.
In the film, the director also left out such scenes and details to jump around between major action scenes. Philip Nel stated in “Bewitched, bothered, and bored: Harry Potter, the Movie” that, “The accumulation of minor details can create a markedly different experience between a book and a film, which may explain why my students who read the novel first seemed to be so critical of the film. The movie looks like the places in the book but it doesn 't "feel" like them because these little details accumulate (Nel)”. It is these missing little details that catch us off guard when watch a film based off a book; we expect those little details to be in the movie. Another example would be that the friendship between Harry, Ron, and Hermione did not seem as fluid as it was in the books.
From this state he was awakened. (Bierce) However, both the story and film show that... ... middle of paper ... ...fer in order to maintain audience enjoyment and the story line tends to leave out key points one may have found vital to the anecdote. Themes contrasted immensely between the short story, provided my Bierce, and the film, directed by Enrico. Imagination verses reality and death is seen clearly through both, even if portrayed differently, while war and time are almost impossible to see in the film. The book presented the readers with more themes compared to that of the film.
When comparing between our variations, we can compare the changes to see “how much of written work’s plot and characterization has been translated into the new medium, how comprehensive and intelligent an understanding of the original (its strengths, its weaknesses) underlies the translation” (Hunter 159). But when comparing the two we have to remember that “To understand adaptation, for example, we must begin by understanding books and movies are separate and never should be confused with each other,” (Crane 15) so even though the story is similar and the film pulls many elements from the novel, they are still two separate
This meant having to cut down and altar some of the storylines and characters within the novel to suit this age range but at the same time, trying not to lose the basic structure of the novel and the messages given out by George Orwell throughout the book. After viewing the film, we all have our individual opinions on whether this has been done effectively and whether the purpose of the novel was fulfilled. I felt that on a whole, the cartoon version of 'Animal Farm' did not live up to the standards of the novel, however, you find that this is the case with most films that have been converted from books. Although the basic storyline of the novel was suitable for children, the meaning behind the novel was beyond the understanding of this age range. I feel that the producers took on a very hard task to try and convert this high standard novel into a film for all ages.
For example, the Miramax version of Emma with Gwyneth Paltrow portrays an Emma who is more like cupid armed with the bow of modern feminism. In the BBC version, Emma is not portrayed as lightly and as humorous. Instead, she is turned into a bantering harpy who lacks much of the charm of Austen's Emma. This analysis will compare the first chapter of Emma with the corresponding opening scene in each film. By doing so, we will see not only many differences among them (including some obtrusive additions on behalf of the films), but we will also see how the filmmakers differed in their interpretation of Austen's original.
Emma is the primary female character of the novel Emma, but she does not have her own Cinderella story. Though Emma is blessed with beauty, popularity, and good fortune, she feels smug and powerful, becoming snobby, managing, and possessive (Byrne, 67). Emma has been obsessed with the act of matchmaking, which has led to her loneliness, jealousness, and heartbreak. She is confident she knows what is best for others, but her selfish intentions take over, turning an act of kindness into an act of
You sense an undercurrent that Katherine is only using Hester for her own ends and you only receive a very vague feeling that Katherine cares for Hester at all. The film approaches the story in a very different way from the book. This can be partially explained by the fact that it is a film and no matter how focused a screenwriter or director is there must be parts of a novel that must be jettisoned if the film is going to be at all successful. Many of the character building scenes in the book where you find yourself re-evaluating the relationships between the characters were taken out along with some of the obscure details that figure in the book. In the flashback scene in which Hester as a child witnesses the leaving of her governess in rather extreme circumstances (a miscarriage is hinted at) we see how that event affects Hester's personality.
... ... middle of paper ... ... To say both the book and the movie of To Kill a Mockingbird were closely related would be an understatement. Though neither was better or worse, the movie and the book were completely different. Minor differences between the movie and the book include one being easy to read due to narration, and one moving too fast causing the story to be rather predictable. Major differences that changed the whole viewpoint of the story consist of missing characters and characters perceived differently, important scenes left out, and the different was the book and the movie represent the characters and relationships. Overall, the book represents two children trying to enjoy their childhood while becoming good people in the process and the movie is based around a wrongful trial of a black man in the South.
The narration modes found in a novel can be difficult to sustain in a film. The novels chosen for the purpose of this research have different modes of narration. However, many of these narrative processes may be omitted in the adaptation process of a film. Let us look at the narration in each of the novels. In The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, the narrator is an omniscient person who recounts the story in a very monotonous tone which is very neutral.
