1. It is focused on the girl in the background.
2. I don’t think that it is too light or too dark. I think that the unfocused people in the foreground are underexposed.
3. Your eye is drawn to the girl in the background.
4. It looks like the girl is talking on the phone so maybe she just received some bad news. I would call this “Shock”.
1. The sound of the cork popping might be a cover up for Michael to kill Sollozzo and the chief.
2. He isn’t really listening, because he’s thinking about what might actually happen that doesn’t go according to plan. He also might be thinking that it might be a set up for him to get killed instead of him killing both of them.
3. Coppola chose not to include subtitles because it was a suspenseful moment and you feel as if you are actually a customer at that restaurant or even the chief. Michael switches to English because he wants to make sure the audience and restaurant go-ers knows what is happening.
4. The scene is a suspenseful moment because at first he cannot find the gun and the plan might be foiled. Also it is suspenseful because the cop keeps looking towards the door because Michael is taking a long time.
5. The music enhances the dramatic suspense of the scene and the actions that happen in the scene.
6. Our perception of Michael changes because at first he seems to not want to be a part of the “family business” but after his father is shot, he only does this to protect the family and make his father proud.
