Sympathy in Film

Creating sympathy is a very delicate and skilled task to perform in a motion picture.Filmmakers have to take factors in to account in order to get their message across. There are many techniques, ranging from an actors' or actresses' clothes and possessions to the environment in which the movie takes place in, to the set lighting, camera angle, and sound.Although, none of which is as near as important as the acting; how the star portrays his or her character.We have to believe the actor is really that person on the screen, if we are to feel emotions towards that character during a dramatic scene.A film that demonstrates this to the tee, with brilliant acting, visual effects, and sound is Braveheart.

The leading/main character, William Wallace, played by Mel Gibson gives his audience a emotionally charged experience viewing this film.Without words, every look, every expression, we know exactly how he is feeling and sympathize with his pain.Hisfirst real traumatic experience comes when his newly wed wife is killed.Her throat is slit and she is tied to a pole for the town to see as an example.Meanwhile William is waiting for her at a meeting spot.We, the audience already know that she's dead, but distressfully watch as Wallace slowly becomes terrified of what could have happened, as he looks round and round for her.He soon gives up, and decides to return to the town he'd last seen her.Finding her slain body tied up to the post, he falls to his knees, speechless, and we see the utter horror in his eyes, as Wallace realizes he has nothing else to live for.Looking at a proud man suddenly broken, the audience feels utter sympathy towards him and what he has lost.
