Loving my 'Story to Screen' course at Met Film School. Today we talked about movie scenes which have moved us. The frozen palace in Dr Zhivago still has the same magic now as it did the first time I saw it many moons ago….
Often the main character in a scene is not a person, but the scenery. Here, David Lean tells the story of Zhivago and Lara's ill-fated love through the magical and ethereal beauty of the frozen place. Like the snow and ice, their love cannot last but will forever remain as a moment frozen in time.
