Question:

Describe in detail one effect of the mis-en-scene in the film Die Hard.

Daniel J.
Answer:

When Harris gifts Holly the watch at the beginning of the film, it is presented as an obnoxious and innocuous moment. However, the watch becomes pivotal at the end, because Gruber hangs from it and McClane has to unclasp it to release Holly from his grip. The watch transcended its role as a character marker for Harris and became a symbol for Holly's new corporate life from which McClane has to save her.
