Anonymity and intensified continuity : Classical style and form in Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (English)
Abstract [en]

The intention with this essay is to investigate how the narration of the South Korean film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (Park Chan-wook, 2002) relates to the Hollywood pictures of today. An important change which David Bordwell pays attention to is an intensifying of former stylistic paradigms in what he denominates as intensified continuity. That said, Bordwell and Kristin Thompson are in agreement on that the new films still are predominantly classical. The neoformalistic standpoint which Thompson and Bordwell use appears however to contain some problematic implications. Their way of categorizing films as classical, critics maintain, could only result in empty shells of formal parameters. The essay is built upon investigating three areas: plot, narration and style. The result of this study indicates that Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance remains within the classical characteristics, as well as differentiates on certain matters. However, appropriate conclusion needs taking into account also some of the difficulties and critiques targeting the neoformalistic take on style.
