(Four hours of rough treatment of the script.)
It's like a sort of title in the beginning of a paragraph and it's the whole sentence.
Does it mean ( four hours of discussions about the script)?
Thanks in advance.
It's from the diary of Sjoman about Bergman and in this specific part they discuss about the script of (Winter Light),but this phrase is a sort of title in the beginning of this part. After that we have about 2 pages of discussion between Sjoman and Bergman about the script.
Thanks dear Copyright.
Since you're reading it, you can tell me if either of these thoughts is correct. A rough script is like a rough draft -- not polished, a work in progress. But it's also possible to handle a script roughly -- cutting, adding, moving sequences around. It sounds like the second thought is closer and they did some heavy editing in four hours.
