The scene where Anna takes the train to France, with the locomotive shown diagonally from left to right, is visually and symbolically significant.

Symbolism and Visual Impact

  • Transition and Movement: The diagonal framing of the train emphasizes movement and transition. It visually represents Anna’s journey from her past in Germany to an uncertain future in France. This movement signifies her attempt to leave behind her grief and seek closure or new beginnings.
  • Dynamic Composition: The diagonal composition creates a dynamic and dramatic visual effect. It draws the viewer’s eye across the screen, enhancing the sense of urgency and emotional intensity of Anna’s journey.
  • Breaking Boundaries: The diagonal line can also symbolize breaking free from the constraints of her current life. It suggests a departure from the static, grief-stricken existence she has been living, moving towards potential healing and reconciliation.

Atmospheric and Emotional Context

  • Emotional Turmoil: The train journey is a pivotal moment for Anna, filled with emotional turmoil and hope. The dramatic framing underscores the significance of this decision and the emotional weight it carries.
  • Historical Context: Trains in the early 20th century were a primary means of long-distance travel, symbolizing progress and connection between distant places. This historical context adds to the authenticity and period feel of the film.

Joan of Arc



Songs Of Love And Hate

“Joan of Arc” by Leonard Cohen is a hauntingly beautiful song from his 1971 album Songs of Love and Hate. The lyrics depict a dialogue between Joan of Arc and the fire that consumes her, symbolizing her martyrdom and spiritual journey.

Now the flames they followed Joan of Arc

As she came riding through the dark

No moon to keep her armor bright

No man to get her through this very smoky night …


Bob Dylan directly references Joan of Arc in his song “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.” In this song, he includes the line:

I met a young woman whose body was burning …

This line is widely interpreted as a reference to Joan of Arc, who was burned at the stake.

Dylan uses this imagery to evoke powerful and tragic historical events, blending them into his broader narrative of social and political turmoil.

How would you improve your community?

As an educator for more than 35 years and now retired at the Gold Coast, my advice is never teach someone.

Just set up conditions, so that people learn on their own and help each other.

There is nothing like Family First, then friends and a good neighbourhood plus community.

And always go local first and for everything, like small business and local Heroes and more …

This is more my Aussie view since 2012 in my Third Life.

While “mezzanine” is primarily used to describe architecture, “mezzanine financing,” in the financial realm, is capital that has both debt and equity features. Just like a mezzanine floor sits between the ground and first floors, this type of lending falls between more traditional types of financing.
