About this book

This book presents a new approach to film analysis. It provides methods for analysing meaning making in film through tracking concrete details of film images such as characters, objects, settings and character action. It also represents new ground for investigating empirical issues in film.

Reviews

"Cohesion in Film really is that rare thing, a genuinely new contribution to film studies. Earlier attempts at applying linguistic concepts to film theory have not always been particularly illuminating. Tseng's adaptation of systemic functional linguistics, however, provides a lucid and precise method for close readings of films. It is based on a solid analysis of how films offer information and how we process that information so that it makes narrative sense." - Henry Bacon, Professor of Film and Television Studies, University of Helsinki
