Abstract:

Through an examination of the cinematography and the editing style of the film, the article will show how these elements coalesce to serve both the story and characters, while underscoring the film's themes of loss, uncertainty and fear. The film-maker's mastery of her craft ultimately confronts us with the realization that for Marco and his family the war is far from over.
