Le Récit plastique
Le Fantasme comme modèle pour l'écriture d'un film

Abstract : The films of Robbe-Grillet, Lynch, Godard, Bergman, Suzuki, Satoshi Kon... all have a certain disturbing strangeness. They condense, displace and metamorphise traditional linear storylines with a more free flowing form of organisation that stems from visual associations.
In this thesis, presented alongside a screenplay for a full-length film entitled Le Cinquième Fantasme (The Fifth Fantasy), we examine the specific nature of such a “plastic narrative” and show the narrative form (rhizomorphic) tearing itself from the classic linear structure, the thread of the story, into a multidimensional space where the spectator can “travel” freely depending on his or her own fantasies. In this “space”, the spectator forms his or her own interpretations reliant on his/her place in history.
To understand how such a “plastic narrative” is put into effect, we go back to its very inception in order to see how it is made to work. This means beginning the thesis by dealing with the concept of fantasy, it being a product of “primary processes”. We analyse the formal specificalities of this “psychodrama” using the discourse of psychoanalysis so that they can be reinvested into the writing of a screenplay.
We are at the crossroads of several different fields: aesthetics, cinema and psychoanalysis.
