The trio enter a late night art gallery in Paris city centre. The characters are bemused by the art on display and arelooked down upon by the middle class patrons.The boys feel alienated and this is reflected through the cinematography.Hubert attempts to ‘chat-up’ women but as Sayid and Vinz enter the conversation things take a turn for the worse andthey become aggressive and threatening.Vinz, Hubert & Sayid are removed from the building; to which the gallery owner says: “Off the estates” How can Todorov’s theory of narrative be applied to this scene? What does this scene tell us about how the divisions in French society?You must include analysis of themes, micro elements and include some culturual / historical context.
