Abstract

Through the perspective of French Semiotics we propose to analyze the movie The Hours (Stephen Daldry, 2002), an adaptation of the homonymous book by Michael Cunningham (1998).The chosen corpus consists of a variety of intertexts providing different possible reading levels. Bearing in mind French Semiotics posits the principle of immanence, the analysis of the film becomes challenging, mainly regarding the definition of the levels of intertextuality to constitute its "text". The film provides different levels of meaning effects, which depend on the enunciatee's competence in identifying the presence of references or citations.Our main objective is to analyze the movie The Hours aiming at identifying the intertextual elements that are present in its text and unveiling their role in the text's meaning effects construction process.
