Transnational Film Remakes, Hardback Book

Transnational Film Remakes Hardback

Edited by Iain Robert Smith, Constantine Verevis

Description

Bringing together a range of international scholars, Transnational Film Remakes is the first edited collection to specifically focus on the phenomenon of cross-cultural remakes.

Using a variety of case studies, from Hong Kong remakes of Japanese cinema to Bollywood remakes of Australian television, this book provides an analysis of cinematic remaking that moves beyond Hollywood to address the truly global nature of this phenomenon.

Looking at iconic contemporary titles such as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Oldboy, as well as classics like La B te Humaine and La Chienne, this book interrogates the fluid and dynamic ways in which texts are adapted and reworked across national borders to provide a distinctive new model for understanding these global cultural borrowings.
