At Doorsan we have an interest in anything related to doors. My latest find is in the hugely popular Disney film called Frozen.
There is a song fairly early on in the film called Love is an Open Door, which is a duet between two characters called Anna and Hans. I have had to watch this film a number of times as it seems to be a firm favourite amongst young girls, including my three year old daughter and all of her friends. We have been to a couple of Frozen themed Birthday parties and the children all sing along and dance to the songs from the film so it is certainly popular.
Whilst the target audience for this film is probably quite young, the underlying message of this song is quite complex. The character called Anna has led a lonely life being shut away from her older sister from a young age. Hans appears to be her knight in shining armour, but various lyrics in the song indicate that he has motives beyond simply being attracted to Anna. It is suggested that the reference to an open door is that Anna is a door into the Royal Family and a position of power for Hans. I must admit, I hadn't realised the significance of these words when hearing the lyrics. I just assumed that love is an open door related to opening up to a new life with someone else.
It seems that there are a lot of references to doors throughout the film, including the fact the Elsa, the older sister shut herself inside her bedroom door in an attempt to protect Anna and herself. Later in the film, Anna pleads with her sister not to slam the door on her. Once you work with doors, you start to see and hear references to doors in all sorts of places.
