This clip is from Audrey Hepburn's "Breakfast at Tiffany's". The clip is of the final scene in the movie where Paul tells Holly that her Brazilian finacee is no longer interested in marriage. Around the 2:30 mark, the director uses a close-up on Holly to emphasize her emotions. The shot of Holly's face that turns from a once bright expression to a distrought look of hopelessness makes viewers sympathetic for the character's situation. In the last shot of the scene the director uses a camera on a crane to go from a medium shot of Holly and Paul to a high angle shot showing the streets and the buildings surrounding them.
