Cinema, as a visual narrative, can convey and propagate significant cultural schemas. One of these schemas in early cinematic works was the simplistic depiction of male protagonists as homogeneous figures representing the masculine attributes universal to conceptions of manhood: strength, intelligence, rationality and psychological balance, leaving the emotional realm of personality to be inhabited by the female form. Our group was inspired to focus on the moral dilemma faced by the male protagonist in post World War II cinema due to its counterintuitive nature in the male dominated medium.
