all arts, it is cinematography that resembles most the reality
and life that we sense around us. That is why it is often
considered so impressive, even though a film is not reality
but an illusion of it.
cinematography is based on an afterimage phenomenon, i.e.
the reaction slowness of the retina,
the illusion of reality our brains are "lying" to
individual image stays on the retina for 1/16 of a second.
When separate images are moved in front of the eyes at the
speed of at least 16 images per second (in the films the speed
is at 24 images per second) we experience the images being
live and real.
