Abstract: Flashdance (1983, USA) by Adrian Lyne Main Cast: Jennifer Beals Company: Paramount Pictures The movie is about Alex. She is 18 years old, works as a welder on daytime and as a dancer during the night. She wants to become a ballet dancer. She falls in love with the foreman Nick, who manages to arrange an audition for her. Scene: tobacco female adults cigarettes nontransgressive solitary 1:14:09-1:15:00: smoking In this scene Alex and Nick are arguing. Nick has arranged the audition, but Alex wanted to achieve it all by herself. She angrily lightens a cigarette. After some arguing Nick takes the cigarette out of Alex’s mouth saying “You are not old enough for smoking!”. It is an interesting scene in that way that smoking is shown here in context of anger. Normally smoking is shown, when people have a serious talk together or when someone needs to relax or calm down. Problem of the scene is that it is more about the argument than about smoking. Actually the cigarette is only shown three times. Clip: 167
