Film analytical essay on Vagabond (1985) (focusing on sound and music)

Describe the music and sound (diegetic and nondiegetic sound, ambient sound, anything special in the dialogue, long pauses, etc.) positing how it creates mood and howthis relates to the overall themes of the film. Note any patterns you detect and those students who are able, comment on specific aspects of the music, such as major or minor keys, harmonies, rhythm, etc., but this is not necessary. Choose 2-3 scenes to analyze closely.
End your paper with a concluding paragraph summarizing your overall understandingof the film and how it was manifested in the formal elements you analyzed and any final thoughts on the film.

3 pages double-spaced, and the grammar do not have to be too good.
