Color in Amelie and Pan’s Labyrinth
Discuss the role(s) of color in Amélie (2001) and one Pan’s Labyrinth (2006). This topic requires you to make an argument about the films in terms of their uses of color patterns. How do patterns of color relate to formal and narrative functions? Do the choices of color seem related to what we could call some normative codes of meaning? (For example: Are reds always “hot” and blues always “cold”? Is black used in opposition to white? Do the colors seem more or less realistic in some sequences, and more or less unreal or dreamlike in others? Why?) Do you think one film has a greater degree of freedom in its use of color? Is this due to the narrative’s own “freedom” from the “restraints” of classical Hollywood cinema? Is one film’s color design more playful or emotive than the other?
