>2000s favourite thrilling scenes – Part 2

The Village (2004) “Don’t let them in!”

There’s something about this scene that it gives me goose bumps every time i watch this film. Of course it has something to do with Hilary Hahn’s violin, passionately and genuinely played by her, besides being brilliantly conducted by James Newton Howard in his greatest achievement. But it’s an ensemble of elements that makes the final piece so delightful and effectively emotional. The frightened, yet bold expression on Ivy’s face, who refuses to shut the door until the man she loves comes back to the house. The slam of the lover’s hands meeting eachother, the close-up on their intertwined fingers, beautifully shot in slow motion and once again, the soundtrack, makes of this film much more than a thriller. Is The Village a thriller after all? I’ve always seen it as a love story.

  1. >I heard it's a good film, but I haven't seen it. The scene is very complex emotionally, which is why it causes excited goosebumps to appear.

  2. >Os Outros, A Vila, tô gostando Romeika, o que mais me arrepiou foi em Sinais, mas depois soube que a imprensa esculhambou tanto, que fiquei até com vergonha de dizer.

  3. >I've never seen it but it looks interestingI may have to rent it sometime

  4. >Apesar de ter sido detonado pela crítica, eu gosto muito de "A Vila". Essa cena, particularmente, é excelente. Uma atuação visceral da Bryce Dallas Howard, a trilha do James (que foi indicada ao Oscar) e a fotografia. Dá um arrepio até a espinha. Perfeito texto, Romeika!

  5. >Eu nem gosto tanto desse filme (para mim o mais fraco do Shyamalan), mas é incrível como tudo nessa cena funciona, a começar pela bela trilha do Newton Howard. E adorei sua visão sobre o filme, bem diferente dos demais…

  6. >Cassiano, não sinta vergonha. Se for assim, pior foi eu que gostei de "A Dama na Água".Kamila, obrigado! E concordo com tudo que você disse sobre o filme.Vinícius, acho que até quem desgostou do filme tem que tirar o chapéu pra essa cena, mesmo:-)Coco and Seraphine, you should see this film sometime!
