La Dolce Vita – Image 4

In images four and five, Maddalena and Marcello merge together through the black of their clothes and background. In image four their hands are on a diagonal position from each other and both slightly closed. In image five Maddalena and Marcello are walking shoulder to shoulder with almost the same expression on their faces and same postures. Although they do not talk a great deal in the entire movie, these shots tell a lot. The repetition of body forms between these two characters as well as their connection through the dark shadow and black fabric as well as their hesitation to appear together in public are translating their relation to the audience. Among all the female figures who Marcello is involved with through the film, Maddalena stands out with her sophistication and elegance.
