NRoncarà - Can's characterisation - 13/10/2019
by 2019-10-13)- (
In the present text I am going to discuss the characterization of Can Yaman as presented in the first episode of the romantic comedy “Erkenci Kus” (in English “Early Bird”).
Can Yaman is one of the protagonists in the comedy.
In order to reach my objective I will follow scene after scene all that the director chooses to do to introduce Can Yaman’s personality in the first episode. It goes without saying that the function of the first episode is to introduce main and secondary characters and, last but not least, to raise curiosity so that the reader or watcher will feel involved in the story and, as a result, go on watching or reading between the lines and put themselves to test to decide how the comedy will be developed.
There must be some reason why the director has made the decision to have him appeared in the second scene. Indeed, considering the first one, the naive reader wouldn’t expect that one of the protagonists is missing. Therefore he will soon understand the choice is meant to create suspense and curiosity and give the reader the opportunity to find the film/video/text involving and avoid boredom.
When he comes back on the screen at first you can see the nature to underline his personality and then him with his kayak and his car. His brother calls him again and you can notice differences between them. Unlike his brother, Can wears casual clothes and it represent his sporting spirit.
It’s possible to immediately understand Can prefers to be alone but when he goes into his father office you can feel the strong connection with him.
