Film makers use a variety of techniques to indicate to an audience that time is passing or a scene is changing. A film where scenes are run together without some indocation that time has passed can be very confusing. Sometimes film makers edit film in a particular way to suggest that time is passing more slowly (expanded) and in other parts it is passing more quickly (condensed).
Watch the opening scene of the film up to the point Polly's parents walk into the pub. Describe what is happening in the sky.
