Mr. and Mrs. Smith: Pause at 8 minutes and 17 seconds and look at Brad Pitt’s eyes.

Often looked down upon due to the celebrity scandals that surrounded its release, Mr. & Mrs. Smith is still a very effective, well-paced action comedy that deserves more than that, as we’ve already told you here. The detail that interests us today shows how seriously the film was taken by those who made it.

The feature film has some great shoot-and-rep moments between John and Jane Smith, played by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but the scene we’re interested in seems to be much more innocuous.

in 8 minutes and 17 seconds

The sequence takes place at a party where the Smith couple goes. Tempted by the shooting gallery, Jane shoots clumsily and holds the gun poorly. On the contrary, John uses it right, and above all, if you look closely at the 8 minutes and 17 seconds of the film, it makes a kind of wink that can be overlooked, but is worth paying attention to.

Brad Pitt blinks, but for good reason

As the accounts recalled Movieflax or Movie details, this closing of the left eyelid is not insignificant: he closes his eye before shooting at the target and opens it again before shooting. This is a sniper trick to maintain peripheral vision and thus shoot better.

And this detail indicates to anyone who knows it that if John Smith shoots well, it’s because he’s a professional shooter. A kind of clever Chekhovian weapon intended for initiates that rewards them for that little bit of knowledge and gives them an advantage over the rest of the audience to understand the real deal with Brad Pitt’s character before anyone else. The devil is in the details!

Jane Smith shows her husband

In response to his masterful strokes, which he attributes to “beginner’s luck,” Jane, who has played the game to keep her cover intact, finds her pride upset and demands a second game. In turn, he hits whatever he aims at while keeping both eyes open. He also attributes his success to “beginner’s luck.” “The odd couple” says to himself the audience … who realizes that the work of the director and screenwriter (Doug Liman and Simon Kinberg) was well done!
