8. La Haine Booklet

8.1. Film narrative & form.

8.1.1. Narrative David Bordwell & Kristin Thompson suggests that a narrative is a chain of events in cause effect relationship occurring in time and space. Manipulation if narrative, time and space and the deployment of various devices comprise the main work of the film director as 'storyteller'. The plot includes the same explicitly presented events plus all the non-diagetic information supplied by the film maker. The plot as a whole seem to lack potential, but the structure of the narrative and the way it unfolds, the process of narration are crucial in turning something seemingly mundane into ninny five minutes of gripping narrative cinema. Conflict between the residents and the police? Metaphorical sense it could be the whole of French society that is falling (he third time the story is told 'society' is substituted for 'man'.
