  • Black Comedy example: Vidal grimaces after having a drink after stitching his mouth up, but pours himself another glass anyway.(Probably trying to dull the pain.)
  • Garcés finding a lottery ticket at the rebel campsite...and Captain Vidal shouting into the wilderness: "You forgot your lottery ticket! This could be your lucky day!" Much later, as Mercedes escapes from the mill, you can actually see Garcés standing by the radio and presumably listening for the results of the lottery, before irritably crumpling the ticket into a ball and throwing it away.
