With Editing the handling of time plays an very important role. The Intercut alternate scenes, insert shots in scenes in a movie in order to show different events that are happeining at the same time. Cross-cutting is an editing technique most often used in films to establish action occurring at the same time in two different locations. In a cross-cut, the camera will cut away from one action to another action, which can suggest the simultaneity of these two actions but this is not always the case.
Suspense may be added by cross-cutting.
