"NOIR see it as a moment of calming, relieving and reconciliation. Recycling and permeation idea. Do not like some of the reds. More like stunning flashes of blackness to paint, draw and write. And here we come to the motifs, themes, direction ... I come to the in common with the main characteristics of noir films (at least I was convinced that it is so).
- Scenes in the film have a lot of shadows, which are sometimes so exaggerated, stylized to look almost comic. The characters in the film noir are mainly motivated by greed, jealousy or revenge. The main character is mostly a private detective or police officer who investigates crimes such as murder, robbery, gambling, prostitution, extortion, etc.. Characteristics of the main character is that he is "bad", it is often torn by remorse, and some of his actions (threats, lies) is no different from the criminals prosecuted. Also characteristic is the emergence of a "femme fatale", the femme fatale, which is sometimes a key motivator of the main character. Often, the film follows the narrative of the main character, which contributes to a dark and depressing atmosphere, because it is full of cynicism, cold or depressed. Hereby, the author of the film noir in the viewer creates a sense of unease, as the viewer unconsciously identify with the main character and questions his motives, feelings and actions. Film noir is largely similar to the classic tragedies, because the main characters often are faced with impossible choices (choose the "less of two evils") and their decisions unwanted water, tragic end.
