from the use of props and the arrangement of the people in the film this does remind me of early photography. in some early photographs stories are told through people who pose in a certain manner. the similarities in photograph and film is they both use people to tell a story or get a point across. they both use props to enhance their work or make it more interesting and real. The difference between film and photography is in film its a longer more in depth story line. Their are also uses of special effect to make film more realistic in photographs you do not have that.
