Dealing with some of the major themes in film narratives, this book draws on the theories of French psychoanalyst Julia Kristeva. It looks at how narratives have changed over time, and considers the sources of our variable reactions to themes and representations of horror, strangers, and love.
In addition to a selection of contemporary mainstream films, the major films for analysis are New Zealand "New Wave" films such as Alison Maclean'sKitchen SinkandCrush; Vincent Ward'sVigil; and Jane Campion'sSweety, An Angel at My Table, andThe Piano.
