Media Communications
(Bachelor’s programme)
2019
The aim of the work was to find common elements of the narrative in westerns and samurai movies. This can help to understand what was the communication between two civilizations on this cultural level.

To reach the goal, it was folowed how each of the genres developed, what influenced it, and how it changed in the period from 1952 to 1972. For this part there were analyzed mythological components in westerns and samurai movies.

The next stage was the analysis and comparison of 30 selected films in 7 narrative elements. The results of this study are arranged in tables.

Based on these data, we can conclude that the interaction between westerns and chanbara was not as close as it might seem in the first approximation.
