The narrative is a mixture between abuse towards a loved one, lust that the characters feel for one another but ultimately end in tragedy and the appetite of food and the body, the film’s narrative is a French restaurant owned by a thug named Albert Spica, thinks that his ideas for the restaurant and his food choices is what people want more importantly what he wants, for his wife Georgina, though this makes her frustrated and annoyed at her husband at his behaviour until she gives the lustful looks to a character named Michael narrative kicks off, the rest of the film is about how lustful Michael and Georgine were, how they slowly become together as if the film will have a happy ending but…

Reflective statement

Throughout this whole project it has been a real challenge and delight, for I have really enjoyed trying to create the city not just in mooring and some mailing but also by making it in Maya. My strongest points of the project is definitely how I modeled this entire city for its the strong point of the project to me I love how I have modeled every part of the building even the ones that looked complicated in orthography yet they were completely fine when modelling itself. I agree with film after looking back on my renders I agree that the texturing of the building need some work and that the scales and placements of the matte painting, lamps and builds needs some readjusting, i will Bear this in mind for the next project. I am really happy nonetheless of how my model was made and how it looks and glad that I managed to achieve this model.

Susiria by Dario Argento 1977 - Film Review 11 space and environment

Image
Figure 1
Dario Argento also known as horror's Italian Stallion and the Italian version of Hitchcock decided to make a horror film about dance and witch called Suspiria in 1977, with the help of Giuseppe Bassan they would make a horror film that explores every way it could to be terrifying.
the film has a simple narrative to follow and understand. The narrative is a New York dance student called Suzy Bannion, she moves to a famous dance school in Germany only to find mysterious murders and secrets to discover, after discovering that the school is run by a covenant of witches she burns the school and walks away. Although the story is plain and simple it makes up in its music, effects and colour choices, for this quote states that “the whole is a stunning combination of menacing Grand Guignol atmosphere, dazzling colours, gory violence, lush d├ęcor and pounding soundtrack.” (Jones, 2015). This helps the film stand out more of a horror film and bring it to life for viewers to enjoy.
