    1,419 words
    Perhaps one of the most haunting and compelling parts of Sanders-Brahms' film Germany Pale Mother (1979) is the nearly twenty minute long telling of The Robber Bridegroom. The structural purpose of the sequence is a bridge between the marriage of Lene and Hans, who battles at the war's front, and the decline of the marriage during the post-war period. Symbolically the fairy tale, called the "mad monstrosity in the middle of the film," by Sanders Brahms (Kaes, 149), offers a diabetic forum for wi...

    'What's Love Got to do With It?' That was Tina Turner's view of love in the late nineteen-eighties. Apparently Scott Peck, the author of The Road Less Traveled, felt the same way. Peck's view of love was a correction to what he thought everyone else thought love was. This paper will be an explanation of Peck's beliefs about love, a contrasting view on love, and my personal knowledge of Peck's beliefs. Peck had a very pessimistic and, at times, a contradicting view of what is believed to be 'love...

    Children encounter problems with family, life, and love all throughout their younger years and have many questions that may be difficult to answer or discuss. In his essay The Struggle for Meaning, Bruno Bettelheim argues that the fairy-tale provides the child with information about death, aging, and poverty and many other issues that the typical safe story would never even attempt to conquer (311). By doing this fairy-tales provide the child with a good balance of morals and values that hopeful...

Although the movie producers did not say that they were going to do everything right in this movie by inserting enlightened messages and changing old stereotypes, I believe, however, that it is apparent that it was their intent to do so, making this film more than a typical fairy tale.
