CH 04 Overview
The main point of Chapter 4 is to give you an overview of the elements of narrative in film. Many of
these elements are shared in common with other narrative forms such as prose fiction and drama, so
if you have studied narrative form in literature or theater classes, you will see some familiar terms and
concepts here in Chapter 4. But be alert to the unique features of film narrative—especially the
various ways that time is manipulated in movies.
A central concept in this chapter is the relationship between plot and story. Figure 4.2 on page 137
and the discussion that begins on that page is essential reading if you want to understand this
relationship. The gist is this: the plot of a movie is the manner in which the underlying story is
presented onscreen. All of the decisions that filmmakers make about what to show onscreen come
down to this fundamental distinction between plot and story.
Among the decisions that flow from the plot/story distinction are the order and duration of narrative
events. Regarding duration, it is most important for you to understand how the summary
relationship works in film, since it is the most common type of manipulation of time (duration) in
In addition to narrative events, there are a few other major elements of film narrative covered in this
chapter: characters, setting, and narration. The section devoted to narration is short, but you
shouldn’t conclude that the subject is less important than the other two. In fact, because we as
viewers identify with the camera’s perspective, the implied point of view conveyed by the camera
adds a complex wrinkle to film narration that makes it different from the modes of narration in written
fiction or in staged drama.
