In comparison, the two movies portray the rot in society, especially in relationships. The characters portray how women undergo mistreatments in the hands of men. The two plays also depicts the importance of justice. In the contrasts, the movies have used different characters. Therefore, the theme might be altered. The setup and the scenes in the films also have a huge time difference. Therefore, the characters in the movie might be addressing different issues altogether.Lastly, the setup of the films are distinct. The one of the cinematography is that the film when viewed the characters are speaking straight to us that is straight on, and the angles of the video shots vary from high to low.
In conclusion, among the many characters in the movies, all of them try to expose the reality of what goes on in our society. It is also surprising to note that rights of women have been violated in the society for a very long time as conveyed on the film. Therefore it is important for the society to consider implementing gender rules to safeguard women.
