Can Nell represent
From what viewpoint, this movie saw Nature?
*Jerry: Tries to learn Nell’s language => personal contact; with simple equipment. (radio tape)
*Paula: “Analyze” Nell’s language; with all kinds of modern productions. (video tape, convenient boat)
*Jerry: emotional;transference => lonely childhood
*Paula: 1. for job (beginning)
2. emotional (later) => broken family
1. They think they can do the best for Nell. (arguing at the court)
2. Want to protect Nell from being hurt. (educate Nell; when the press comes)
*self consciousness of Jerry and Paula
◆ The loud noise interrupted peace and brought threat.
2. Journalist- explorer V.S Jerry – protector
◆ He took Neil as a material for report to met his need.
~ no empathy
◆ Jerry acted as a protector also out of emotional need
3. Delivery boy- unintentional victimizer
◆ The teasing attitude toward Neil did hurt her without thinking. （like some careless tourists）
4. Outside Intervention （the doctor, law to force Neil’s leaving ）- fake judge
◆ The superior self-esteem over nature disregarded Neil’s own will and thoughts. （hierarchy）
3. Nakedness vs. Nudity
(e.g., swimming in the lake)
-> ‘nude’ -> being observed
