:Another thing is that if you think back, there was a pause in the movie in the beginning when Uncas NOTICES Alice. The camera pans down to the river and the rush of water is heard, then it fades to silence. Actually, now that I think about it, throughout the movie significant emotional moments are either preceeded or followed by moments of silence. Anyone else notice this?
Very interesting observation, Heather. I wonder how many moments of significant silence we can remember. How about in the glade, after Cora tells Hawkeye "it's more stirring to my blood...etc" and turns over to go to sleep. I love the way Hawkeye glances quickly downhill to see that they are still safe, then lets his eyes slide down the length of Cora, lying in the grass. No words necessary there, before the scene fades away.
