It reinforces the fact that people are never apart in spirit although they may be physically separated.
is a plucky, happy-go-lucky fish and the music reflects that character. Music says a lot about the personality of a character. This music is free-flowing, happy, and joyful in tone. Basically, Nemo's life is good and this music reflects the joy and wonder he has in his life. This clip reveals what Nemo's family life is like, and is a little curio which showcases how good life is before he gets lost. At this point the story is still in the stage of exposition-there is some narrative hook that is going to grab the audience, but not quite yet. The music is light and happy.
creates a joyful and carefree atmosphere. This music is supposed to characterize Nemo's life as a young fish-he does not have any worries, and his life is relatively unfettered by problems of the world out in the big sea, as he mainly sticks close to home. However, the music does foreshadow, at least a bit in all its utter happiness, that perhaps this music is a backdrop for the more serious material that is going to be coming in the future. Basically this "happy" music is a lead-in to a more tranquil side of music which will match the tone of the movie when Nemo gets lost. In that sense, this music can sound very superficial and has almost a dreamlike quality to it.
Upon reflection, this movie is filled with many happy moments before Nemo
gets lost. As Marlin (one of the characters) says, "No! I didn't come this far to be breakfast!"1 So is the struggle that Nemo will find once he leaves the ambience of the happy music. Music has the ability to give a certain quality to situations on-screen that otherwise would not have been as clearly delineated. In Finding Nemo, the composers do an excellent job of conveying feelings through the music.
To sum up, the music in this clip of Finding Nemo has elements that not only
make the audience aware of the happy life Nemo had before getting lost-but it also conveys a sense of innocence. Music such as this can be endearing because these qualities are qualities which are apt to be found in a situation that is comforting, and also encouraging, and which are good for the soul. Music like this is apt to inspire, apt to bring a smile to someone's face. In its analysis, this song conflates all of the hopes of Nemo's future and brings happiness and delight to the hearts of all who hear this music, hopefully. Upon reflection as well, which is part of the synthesis, this movie clip does an excellent job of conveying a feeling that will make the viewer emote. This is so key in a movie which young children will be viewing. Children are moved by feelings they can sense in music. When a tune is happy, like this one, children relate to that with the joy they feel inside, being kids and being innocent, and they enjoy hearing such music because it is part of who they are at heart.
