Film Guide for "The Red Kite".
Hughes, A. O.
English Exchange, v11 n3 p41-46 Spr 1969
Aspects to consider in studying the film "The Red Kite" are (1) a synopsis of the story, which concerns a young father's musings about life and death; (2) the film's structure, which focuses on the father's encounters in a store, on a bus, in his home, at a party, and finally on a hill while flying the kite; (3) possible themes, such as "human effort motivated by love transcends all difficulties and doubts"; (4) the development of the theme through structure and mood--color, the spiritual and physical climbing effect, characterization, symbolism; and (5) film techniques, such as close-up views, flashbacks, sound effects, and panoramic shots.
