Tempo changes and empathy

Brazil (1985) with the original Samba that matches the tempo of the scene. The audience enters the action.

Brazil (1985) with the same Samba with a slower tempo. The audience detaches itself from the action: anempathy and reflection on the events.

Genre and tempo changes (analysis by modification) in Enemy (2013). Contemporary music = terror, dehumanized drama. Satie piano lento = intimate drama, melancholy. Satie piano allegro = joy, comedy.
