As this movie showcases the stress that arises from the social strain felt through either visitors and hosts to comply with grace to their roles, one of many issues that obviously arises is the trouble of preserving a dignified façade. Chickens and their similar nutrition always interfere to disrupt any makes an attempt to place up the sort of entrance. ninety nine As reside animals, chickens thwart Bambas’s try and retain his motor vehicle fresh and presentable. the 1st time he opens the storage doorways, there's a fowl status on most sensible of the auto, a surrealist juxtaposition, definitely, yet certainly not gratuitous. although a lot Bambas loves his family members, his motor vehicle is tacitly linked to the liberty of his past lifestyles as a bachelor, part of himself that he wish to hold sacrosanct and break away his kin existence. notwithstanding, the chickens at all times locate their means into his storage, making it (as Bambas bitterly observes) ‘more like a rooster house’, and the truth that they accomplish that with the intention to ‘hatch’ reinforces the symbolic disagreement of Bambas’s freedom and person self as opposed to his kin duties. Bambas angrily attempts to chase the chickens out of the storage, whereas his spouse's mother protests that he's scaring them, and that ‘they’ll cease laying eggs’. This minor war of words highlights differing views at the chickens. Bambas’s overreaction exhibits that he sees the chickens as greater than a minor inconvenience, as in addition they stand as consistent facts of the shortcoming of privateness in his lifestyles; the grandmother, in the meantime, is concentrated at the chickens as dwelling creatures and, in particular, invaluable farm animals. it's the grandmother’s conception of the animals that's emphasized so much on the finish of the scene while a bird is administered over as Bambas impatiently drives the auto whereas the chook remains to be beneath it; the scene’s ultimate shot pans down from the rear of the auto to stick with an egg rolling again into the storage until eventually it bumps into the poultry that lies with a damaged neck. The unhappiness here's just for the misplaced family animal, instead of having any sinister undertones of a wish in Bambas to get rid of his relations. certainly, the lower from the poultry to the funeral procession that starts off the subsequent scene serves to mock the unhappiness the viewer could believe for the lifeless chook, because the montage creates a quick yet wrong influence that it's the chook that's being mourned. while similar to the fowl at the motor vehicle recurs later within the movie, its juxtaposition with an instantly previous shot once more conjures up the symbolism of Bambas’s frustration. The really lyrical silhouettes of Bambas and Petr are stuck by way of motor vehicle headlights as they drunkenly head off jointly to pursue a dream of a unfastened lifestyles at the highway. the following shot comes as a distinction, because it combines vehicle and fowl to create the very photograph of Bambas’s perpetual defeat (figure three. 3): the single car is within the storage; because it is now morning, its headlights seem vulnerable; the silhouettes of the 2 males were changed by way of the extra prosaic and extraordinarily well-known silhouette of the fowl on most sensible of the auto.
