Virtually overlooking the falls and surrounded by the swift current not far from the camera is a small island where six or eight tourists watch the water, talk, and move about.

Beautiful Cinematography
10 March 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The beautiful cinematography of "Niagara" combines footage of the falls, from an excellent vantage point, with other scenery that complements the main view very nicely. The film has held up well physically, and it is still quite effective in making the viewer feel part of the scene.

The camera field is well-chosen so as to catch portions of two parts of the falls. In the foreground, water rushes past as it heads towards the falls, and farther back is a view of a stretch of the falls themselves. The footage convincingly displays the power and beauty of nature.

Although at first the rushing waters grab all of the attention, the camera field also includes a group of persons on an observation point in the middle of the falls. It's very interesting to watch them as well, looking very small and vulnerable in the midst of such natural grandeur.

As simple as the idea for this feature is, it works very well, and it makes a very attractive picture that also brings out some interesting themes.
