* CityMouse: The Woman, with her tight dresses and heels, obviously doesn't fit in the rural village. And she knows it, which is why she wants the Man to come to the city with her.

The story follows a rural man (George O'Brien) who, under the influence of an urban temptress (Margaret Livingston), plans to kill his wife (Gaynor) by pushing her out of a boat. He can't go through with it, though: the couple continue their boat ride to TheCity, where they reconcile and have a day's worth of innocent adventures.

But when they begin to row home, a storm rises, the boat sinks, and the man believes his wife to be dead.

The temptress approaches the man again, but this time he rejects her; he is about to strangle her when villagers arrive with news of his wife's survival. He abandons his erstwhile mistress and returns to his wife. The film ends with them together, watching the sun rise.

* ForDoomTheBellTolls: Played with. The church bells ring in a doom-y way as the man takes the wife out on what's supposed to be a fatal boat ride. But when they ring again, making higher notes, they help snap him out of it.

* DownOnTheFarm: Setting for the first part, contrasting with the latter portion when the couple goes to the City.

Full title: ''Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans''. A 1927 film directed by [[Creator/FriedrichWilhelmMurnau F. W. Murnau]]. It was his first American film and won two Oscars at the first AcademyAward ceremony: Best Cinematography and Best Artistic Quality of Production (an alternate Best Picture award that existed only that year). It is perhaps best known for its massive critical acclaim (even over 80 years later) and for either inventing or perfecting many of the camera, special effects and storytelling techniques we take for granted now.

Janet Gaynor won the first ever AcademyAward for Best Actress for this film, as well as ''[[Film/SeventhHeaven 7th Heaven]]'' and ''Street Angel'' (at that first ceremony, the acting awards were given for one's body of work during the year).

Added DiffLines:

* ChromaKey: What looks at first like an egregiously bad green-screen effect of the Man and Wife walking across a city street, is revealed to be deliberate when the effect changes to the Man and Wife walking through a beautiful field of flowers, suggesting how they're tuning out the world as they renew their love for each other.


Added DiffLines:

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: The angelic, loving Wife has blonde hair--this is definitely an artistic choice, as Gaynor was a natural brunette.


Added DiffLines:

* ImportantHaircut: The Man gets a shave, getting rid of his scruffy beard, symbolic of being renewed and cleaning himself.
