LOVE FILM AND CINEMA PRODUCTION. 74 years old, and J.C. 41 singing, “Feliz Navidad” ! Oh, yes ! YES ! I want to learn Spanish. NO kidding. Motion Pictures in a dialogue of Spanish, French in deference to français québécois, with a little English to keep the story going. JUST, LOVE FANTASY, SUR-REAL and breaking the-fourth-wall. “Meta-reference, a metafiction technique, is a situation in a work of fiction whereby characters display an awareness that they are in such a work, such as a film, television show or book, and possibly that they are being observed by an audience. Sometimes it may even just be a form of editing or film-making technique that comments on the programme/film/book itself. It is also sometimes known as “Breaking the Fourth Wall“, ( = From Wikipedia )… See the following example, to me as an older mature adult an extremely funny motion picture…GO to link    “A.I. Artificial Intelligence, also known as A.I., is a 2001 American science fiction film directed, written, and co-produced by Steven Spielberg, based on the screen story by Ian Watson and based on the 1969 short story “Super-Toys Last All Summer Long” by Brian Aldiss. The film was produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Spielberg and Bonnie Curtis. It stars Haley Joel Osment, Jude Law, Frances O’Connor, Brendan Gleeson and William Hurt. Set in a futuristic and post-climate change 22nd century, A.I. tells the story of David (Joel Osment), a childlike android uniquely programmed with the ability to love…”” SEE link

“Plato has Socrates describe a gathering of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall by things passing in front of a fire behind them, and begin to designate names to these shadows. The shadows are as close as the prisoners get to viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall do not make up reality at all, as he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners…” SEE link     “”Atlantis, the Lost Continent is a 1961 American science fiction film in Metrocolor, produced and directed by George Pal for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, starring Sal Ponti (aka Anthony Hall), Joyce Taylor, and John Dall. [1] The film concerns the final months leading up to the destruction of the ancient continent of Atlantis during the time of Ancient Greece….””Interesting to this Blogger in the George Pal for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer story is the GMOs and GENETIC ENGINEERING that some scientist and government people let happen. BACKSTORY, seems to be that Atlantis in government and technological arrogance was attacking “MOTHER NATURE” and “G*D’s ORDER OF NATURAL DEVELOPMENT on PLANET EARTH. A cautionary tale. SEE link

MUSICAL PRODUCTION as in this video called, “Mikado” has a comical and interesting background. Please, do NOT misunderstand this post. This Blogger had a very old music teacher who tried to teach the enjoyment of 19th century musical theater and Gilbert & Sullivan was the “love of her life.” Gestures and “over-acting” by “modern standards” was part of the comic style. You are suppose to laugh at some of it, but there was a “thin-line” that was attempted NOT to be cross into burlesques. NOT suppose to be “over-done” into lampoon. Gilbert & Sullivan wanted a tight control on production to be a balance between “High-Opera” and farce, that is my understanding. Stage musicals have at times been realistic and times when they are complete fantasy, this was suppose to be a “middle-ground” between silliness and serious humor. Even in the singing style, as parts are in “Grand Opera” style and at other time stand-up comedy. The jokes are generally for “Upper-Middle” class sophistication as can be heard by the elegant words sung that few people use in regular conversation. That is also suppose to make people laugh because few real people talk that way, except to be funny or pompous. musical comedy can also have a “cautionary Tale.” Just because a comedy is outwardly funny, does NOT mean that there is not a hidden, or even sinister meaning in all the jokes and humor. All could theater be metaphor…

“A cautionary tale is a tale told in folklore, to warn its hearer of a danger. There are three essential parts to a cautionary tale, though they can be introduced in a large variety of ways. First, a taboo or prohibition is stated: some act, location, or thing is said to be dangerous. Then, the narrative itself is told: someone disregarded the warning and performed the forbidden act. Finally, the violator comes to an unpleasant fate, which is frequently related in expansive and grisly detail….”” SEE link
