Titanic Meta 2/∞

Much like with the rest of the film, there is much more about this Titanic scene than just the romantic smooch that popular culture loves to reduce it to. For her whole life, Rose has been denied freedom under the restraints of her surroundings. Her own mother and Cal have put her in a cage, metaphorically cutting her wings by expecting her to conform to patriarchal expections without question. So when Jack asks her to step up over the railing and spreads her arms, he is symbolically spreading her wings. He is opening that cage she’s been trapped in, and showing her that she can be free. She can fly… and fly she does.

It’s not up to you to save me Jack.

You’re right. Only you can do that.

Titanic (film) trivia: The flying scene was shot on four different locations in and around the set. The pieces were then edited together to form a single seamless sequence. One notable location was Rosarito Beach where the scene was filmed outdoor with an actual sunset backdrop which was shot only in one take. James Cameron recalls the weather not being particularly great that day but suddenly the clouds parted and there was a beautiful light. Kate Winslet urged James Cameron to shoot the scene while the sunset was at its peak regardless of not having time for rehearsals. Several segments of that one take were used in the film’s final cut. Pick-up shots were filmed later on a sound stage with an artificial sunset background duplicated from the real one shot in Rosarito Beach.
