    Does anyone know what the "scena madre" of a film is called in English? Could it be the most important scene?

    The text I found the word in says that exposition arrives at the climax of the midpoint of the film in preparation for the scena madre. Thus, the climax is not found in the scena madre.

    Does anyone have any ideas on this?
