The sun represents the male element and the moon represents the female element. So her living room is a sun room, and her magic room and dining room are moon rooms. Also, the renaissance festival is a summer solstice festival where the sun is being worshiped, so everything there is based on yellow and orange: yellow and gold silk costumes, marigolds, yellow and orange daisies, etc. All of the red in her bedroom and in the burlesque club, plus the red light around the edges of the ritual flashbacks, symbolize danger and sexuality, and the pink in the tea room symbolizes girlhood and feminine fantasy. The white wedding costumes and white unicorn represent purity, monogamy, and love, and the black robes and candles represent witchcraft and the dark arts. clickSo the film is dripping with color symbolism. Ive watched so many Technicolor films in my life that these were obviously also an influence -especially on the lighting technique but for this film the set design came mostly out of my imagination. The styling and choice of Elaine, however, was inspired by paintings of beautiful witches on pulp novel covers, and by actresses in 60s Italian horror films such as Edwige Fenech and Barbara Steele. CS: How about the narration? Was that always in the script or was it an element you introduced in the edit?
