Galadriel’s Glade 2 ~ Frodo looks into the mirror, plus jan-u-wine's Lórien Suite 3.

Galadrial has been completely ruined in the films. My mum, to this day, refers to her as "the evil witch" in spite of my efforts to convince her of the opposite.

I love the mirror scene though because of the beautiful shots of Frodo.

Read Shirebound's comment, Lily. She agrees with you. Also, my sister, who read the books when she was young, watched the film with me and said a short way into the Mirror scene, "why is she being so weird and creepy? I thought she was supposed to be Frodo's friend and ally."

I think loads of viewers who'd read the book thought this when they saw the film. I did, too. I still do. Yet the fact remains that I find this scene engrossing cinema and, in some way, resonant of Tolkien's world. When that happens, I always like to try and find why a scene moves and thrills me, even when it is at odds with the book I love.
