Summary

Cohesion in Film is a comprehensive account of how meanings in film are constructed coherently, offering practical methods for analysing concrete elements of film images and relating them to empirical investigation. Tseng addresses several empirical issues and provides specific analytical tools for tracking and patterning film elements such as characters, objects, settings and character action. In particular, she shows how the framework of film cohesion represents new ground for unravelling the ways in which film meanings are communicated to and interpreted by viewers. Through her analysis of several extracts from television and film texts, Tseng demonstrates the potential of the framework for comparing and contrasting media genres.
