Weir shows the audience the reunion between Truman and his father from Christof's perspective - in the control room. Christof is more concerned about how to frame the moment for the most emotional impact - zoom in, music swells, cue close-up - than about how this manipulated version of reality might affect Truman himself. Similarly, Christof bases Marlon's speech on his own perceptions of Truman - it is not rooted in Marlon's real feelings. Therefore, there is now a growing divide between the version of Truman that Christof presents to his audience and Truman's own self - the two were once much more closely linked. It is possible that Truman doubts the sincerity of Marlon's speech - but he keeps this secret hidden inside him. He is so exposed at all times that this is the only way Truman can protect himself.
