"This point of view is emphasised in the scene where they first kiss, in a glade, and something rather radical happens: instead of being behind his head, lingering on her lips coming in, the camera stays behind her, and it’s his mouth we’re seeing. It’s the girl’s-eye view of the kiss. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen that before and it taught me something right there, even at my advanced age, about the Male Gaze. So this is where the rest of the huskness comes in, because even while the film was flaying my feelings, it was making me think."
