RE: [mythsoc] Harry Potter - again!
- I also thought that the follow-up to this scene, where Harry sends his owl
flying in the snow, was the only really intriguing directorial touch in the
whole movie. A director needs to take the internal thoughts and feelings of
the character and find some way to convey them physically, and I think he
handled Harry's release of his obsession with the mirror well here.

he sat in front of it, gazing at his parents - his mother's arm around his
shoulders. I felt deeply for him, in a way I hadn't experienced in the
"Anyone who has a library and a garden wants for nothing."
