1.) most of the film was black and white,giving us sort of an idea of a every plain a predictable setting but why is it that many unsuspecting things occurred? did she leave her parents too young?
2.) which perception of her 2nd boyfriend was real? The one when she was in love, or when after she caught him cheating? In both perceptions her view on this guy is clouded by her emotions. So which is the real one?
3.) After the doctor diagnosed her as depressed, she became depressed. What made her depressed?. She wasn’t depressed when she was diagnosed even though she didn’t know that. Was it that she accepted what the doctor said and fell into depression, or did she become depressed because of the medicine? Medicine has a way of fixing one thing while attacking another, since she wasn’t really depressed, did it make her depressed?
