Abstract

This paper provides an overview on the concept of musicality in fiction cinema language, under- standing the comparative analysis of both art forms and considering cinema as a potentially musical construction. Furthermore, the exam- ination of polyphonic musical textures and its methodical application in the formal analysis of Lucrecia Martel’s cinema (namely in her 2007 film The Headless Woman) provides a new per- spective on the aesthetical values of the Argen- tinean filmmaker’s work with sound and image, which unveils other forms of assuming fiction film narration.
