“Once, when I was a little girl,
on the banks of the Sunagawa,
a handsome stranger was kind enough
to buy me a cup of sweet ice…”
Can we just take a minute to appreciate what an amazing person Rapunzel’s father is? We see him for just a few short sections without him talking at all and can already tell what an amazing person he is. Look at the first gif. You can FEEL how heartbroken he is because he thinks that his wife is going to die. You can see in his face how much he loves her with his whole heart and you can see that if he could somehow take her place instead, he would. He holds his wife’s hand tighter and doesn’t want her to lose that grip. He wants her here with him and he will do anything for that to happen. In the second gif you can see that he is just hoping that this magic flower will work. You can tell he’s still very concerned for his wife. His head is on the back of her head and he slowly lifts her head up and you can tell that in his mind he is thinking “Please let this work. Please. I can’t lose you. I need you,” and maybe he is thinking, “You are my dream” just like Rapunzel was Eugene’s dream. You can just tell that he is a wonderful, loving, sweet, honest man.
you know what’s really amazing about this movie is that Rapunzel’s parents don’t actually have a speaking part at all, but from reflecting on the movie the first time we saw it both me and my boyfriend could have sworn we heard them speak just a few lines. in this scene in particular:
you can see him saying how much he misses his daughter without him speaking a single word. that is amazingly expressive animation.
And can we please talk a moment about how HE was the one giving her the magical cure. It wasn’t a nursemaid, it wasn’t a court physician. You can almost imagine him shooing them all away because that is his wife, the love of his life, his dream, and whether this works or not? If he can’t be the first person who touches her when she’s well, he at least wants to be the last person holding her when she dies.
RIGHT IN THE FEELS
