"Unlike Close Encounters (1977), ET does not concentrate on special effects but more the emotional connection between the young boy and E.T. The director Spielberg forces the viewer to identify with the children' s world." (Sinyard 1987:83). In one of the last scenes the children are cycling to escape from the scientists and adults. This seen impossible task but with extra terrestrial magic and to the audiences delight, the bike begin to unexpectedly fly and the children and E.T. manage to escape. Once again, John Williams music adds to the emotional effect and impact of the film.
