1) What’s the theme of the movie? By the word theme, we mean the core of the movie. Every director’s choice supports the theme of the film. For example, the composition of the frame, the selection of spaces, the style of acting, etc. support the theme of the film!

2) Remember that the work should support the course title: Cinema and space and more specifically urban space. Why did the director make these urban space choices?

3) Definitely to analyze why the director chose this narrow – confined space in a building block. If it was a bigger space, then I would have had another movie.
