Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Based on the narrative mechanisms of the short film, the article addresses its use
of clichés and tropes. The focus is on the migration of these tropes from a narrative
position to a thematic level – a migration regarded as a metafictional device with the
aim of explaining the fate of the main character.
