Abstract [en]

This thesis combines theories on mise en scène, perception and communication for an analysis of the film ”Drive”. The aim is to investigate spectator perception of mise en scène elements where non-verbal communication is salient. Four cases are identified with reference to four scenes of the film, illustrating various spaces where events take place with different characters involved and where hidden signals related to the non-verbal play a significant role. The relationship between film, spectator and perception are dealt with by applying the configurations of window and frame, door, and mirror and face. In connection with these configurations, mainly visual spectator perception is brougt to the fore. With regard to spatial perception, the thesis points to details such as lighting, the positions and the movements of the actors and the camera. Perception of the spectator, from a psychological perspective, is emphasized in connection with internal image and in association with proximity in time and  space. The thesis highlights elements that indirectly affect us as spectators of a film and opens up to a new understanding.
