English term or phrase:as the film
Cristina and I are analysing (already agreed with Paul) 'The Piano' - a film with Holly Hunter and Harvey Kitel, directed by Jane Campion. The accompanying book with the same title as the film was written by Jane Campion a year after the film's premiere.
Would it be OK if I left that 'as the film' bit out?
Explanation: It would not be "wrong" or poor style to delete it, but, other things being equal, I would keep it. It may just be a matter of personal temperament, but I generally favor clarity, perhaps to a fualt.
If you have is an overriding reason, you can delete it. The sense would still be there, but not as explicitly.
