Good day. I’m Jane Campion. I’m the screenwriter and director of ‘The Power of the Canine.’ That is the scene I name the love scene. It’s a scene that occurs in the barn at night time with Phil, performed by Benedict Cumberbatch, and Peter, performed by Kodi Smit-McPhee. It’s actually a scene I like very a lot, as a result of it’s a fruits of their relationship. And so many alternative elements of the movie that basically have been seeded proper from the very starting coming collectively, like the completion of the rope with all its freighted meanings, the change of the relationship between Peter and Phil in the direction of intimacy, after which the stunning energy shift from Phil to Peter as Peter boldly holds out the cigarette to Phil’s lips, then to his personal, and the laying out of the homicide scene. The purpose for me in directing the scene was to seek out a strategy to actually construct stress as Peter watches Phil ending the rope. And that is one thing Phil has truly requested him to do. Will you watch me end the rope? It’s a variety of vulnerability that, truly, Phil exhibits in the direction of him. Right here, we’re seeing the second the place the precise homicide scene has been hinted at, when Phil’s wound pinks the water. And it’s additionally a scene the place I added a lot, a lot of particulars throughout the filming of it and later. However this shot right here was the one which made me actually excited, like, simply doing this transfer of focus pulls between Peter, the rope, Phil’s arms performed in it at his crotch. And pulling again to Peter as he’s watching it. After which, he goes over to Bronco Henry’s saddle and begins to fiddle with that, which is definitely a manner of Peter subversively flirting with Phil, as a result of anyone touching Bronco’s saddle, particularly Peter, might be eroticizing for Phil. And you realize, it’s attention-grabbing that these saddles, they’ve so many— all the spurs truly, variety of little romantic points inside the little silver coronary heart and the precise spurs themselves. You understand? “How previous had been you once you met Bronco Henry?” “About the age you are actually.” Phil and Peter are actually sensing one another out right here. Phil’s probably not certain, I don’t assume, whether or not Peter is conscious of the ambiance, as a result of Peter’s actually arduous to learn. And he begins a story about Bronco Henry and himself once they bought caught out in a storm as an example how their friendship truly was not solely the most necessary friendship in his life, however the one which saved his life. And he talks about mendacity physique to physique in a physique roll collectively. And you realize, in the meantime, fingering the rope and all the different erotic objects in this scene. And Peter asks— “Bare?” Which is the actually necessary second for me and particularly the manner these nice actors work with the strains and with what’s occurring. Right here, we simply see the rope that Peter has made being inserted into the primary rope. And so it turns into a rope that they each made collectively. And initially, the scene didn’t have dialogue in it. In reality, it wasn’t even in the e-book. However Benedict actually resisted the thought of the dialogue. And truly, initially, I had thought it shouldn’t have dialogue too. I assumed it ought to simply have Jonny Greenwood’s stunning music and it will variety of be a second the place it will be actually sturdy. Nevertheless, Benedict and I got here to a variety of compromise, the place we simply used the most harmless of the dialogue. You understand, nothing actually suggestive, however simply one thing easy, like harmless questions. And the scene is setting out a lot of sophisticated issues. However the most necessary, I believe, is that it’s erotic and tense. And this second, when they’re truly sharing the cigarette, Peter provides him this little smile, the place we all know that he is aware of he has Phil. And we transfer on right here to the horses, with the horns nonetheless taking part in. And these are uncooked animals. I believe they’re very horny in a manner, as a result of of simply how pure they’re and seeing them in these particulars and their power and wonder and the intimacy that they’ve with one another is, I believe, extremely necessary as properly.
