Don't Fix It

Up we go

I watched Up last night, and was struck once again by the brilliance of a movie scene paired with classical music. So I dug it up, and was delighted to discover at the top of the video’s comments the following message:

(WDanai) Great filmmaking to seamlessly incorporate such a phenomenal piece of music. With Habanera’s motif starting in a minor key (after the sadness of Ellie’s passing) and progressing into a major optimistic tone, I think that shows the strength of Carl to carry on, stubbornly. This transition is so important for the film.

My work here is done, and I hardly even had to do any work.


About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.
