L.O. To convey plot points without a narrator.

Traditionally, fictional story books are narrated, with a narrator describing the events, thoughts and feelings of the characters throughout. However, in many plays and films, there is no narrator to do this. Today, I would like you to watch the short clip attached from the film Nanny McPhee. How is the plot/storyline explained to the person watching without the use of a narrator? Please look at the following categories:



set design


music and sound effects

facial expressions and body language

camera angles 


Consider all of these aspects of the video and how much information each one gives the viewer. Then write a paragraph or two to explain how much information you have gained about the plot already, from watching a short clip.
