The purpose of file analysis is to use the film as an analytical textual concept. The student will gain knowledge in understanding and interpreting the film’s dramaturgy and narrative components using various analytical tools. The goal is that the student should be able to use these tools to understand and interpret films. Students should be able to use the writing as a means of developing thinking and be able to formulate their own thoughts and observations to ultimately carry out a simpler film analysis.
⦁ Read the help material: file analysis-5 points, file analysis instruction, gestures and concepts.
⦁ Find out who made the movie (director) and write a little about them and see if they have made any other movies that may be important when doing your analysis.
⦁ Enrich the image of the director and the movie by reading film reviews and film criticism: googla!
⦁ Write down your feelings. What has the movie awakened for feelings with you? It is important that you do it directly in connection with the movie otherwise the entire score will be lost. Feelings make your analysis more personal and more readable.

Gestalter are people in stories. Gestaltning is how the author presents and develops these people.
Protagonist is another word for protagonist. This may be the form we get to know best, or which is meant to make us feel the most. The protagonist may also be the one who fights for something in the story.
Antagonist is the protagonist’s opposite. This is the person in the story who stands for the evil, the negative or the self-destructive. Antagonist can be one or more people, but it can also be a natural force. It can also be a part of the protagonist, a darker side.
Direct formatting is when the author tells us how the person is and what characteristics it has.
Indirect gesture is when the author shows us how the person is. We can read between the lines to find the person’s characteristics. For example, through what people say to each other, or what they do, how they treat each other, or how they look or dress
Flat shapes are those that are only described with one or a pair of properties. They are described as stereotypes.
Round figures are those that are more reminiscent of real people. Static figures are the same throughout the story. They do not change. Dynamic characters are those that change in the story. They are developing.
