No matter what level of sophistication the film and its audiences are at, and no matter what sort of information and emotional insight that can come from a film, the main point of a film in the end is to entertain.
Etymology[ edit ] While the term magical realism first appeared in English in: It reflects the uncanniness of people and our modern technological environment.
However, in contrast with its use in literature, magic realist art does not often include overtly fantastic or magical content, but rather looks at the mundane through a hyper-realistic and often mysterious lens. In he founded the magic realist magazine Venezuelan writer Arturo Uslar-Pietriwho had known Bontempelli, wrote influential magic realist short stories in the s and 40s that focused on the mystery and reality of how we live.
Hoffmann but dismissed her own work as a part of the genre. While Flores named Jorge Luis Borges as the first magical realist, he failed to acknowledge either Carpentier or Pietri for bringing Roh's magic realism to Latin America.
Borges is often seen as a predecessor of magical realists, with only Flores considering him a true magical realist. Every text is different and employs a smattering of the qualities listed here.
However, they accurately portray what one might expect from a magic realist text. Fantastical elements[ edit ] Magical realism portrays fantastical events in an otherwise realistic tone. It brings fables, folk tales, and myths into contemporary social relevance.
Fantasy traits given to characters, such as levitation, telepathy, and telekinesis, help to encompass modern political realities that can be phantasmagorical. The reader would consequently disregard the supernatural as false testimony.
Plenitude[ edit ] In his essay "The Baroque and the Marvelous Real", Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier defined the baroque by a lack of emptiness, a departure from structure or rules, and an "extraordinary" abundance plenitude of disorienting detail citing Mondrian as its opposite.
From this angle, Carpentier views the baroque as a layering of elements, which translates easily into the post-colonial or transcultural Latin American atmosphere that he emphasizes in The Kingdom of this World.
These mixing ethnicities grow together with the American baroque; the space in between is where the "marvelous real" is seen. Such a complex system of layering—encompassed in the Latin American "boom" novel, such as One Hundred Years of Solitude—aims towards "translating the scope of America".
Metafiction This trait centers on the reader's role in literature. With its multiple realities and specific reference to the reader's world, it explores the impact fiction has on reality, reality on fiction and the reader's role in between; as such, it is well suited for drawing attention to social or political criticism.
Furthermore, it is the tool paramount in the execution of a related and major magic realist phenomenon: This term defines two conditions—first, where a fictitious reader enters the story within a story while reading it, making them self-conscious of their status as readers—and secondly, where the textual world enters into the reader's real world.
Good sense would negate this process but "magic" is the flexible convention that allows it. Magic realist literature tends to read at an intensified level. Taking One Hundred Years of Solitude, the reader must let go of preexisting ties to conventional expositionplot advancement, linear time structure, scientific reason, etc.
Luis Leal articulates this feeling as "to seize the mystery that breathes behind things",  and supports the claim by saying a writer must heighten his senses to the point of "estado limite" translated as "limit state" or "extreme" in order to realize all levels of reality, most importantly that of mystery.
Therefore, magic realism's "alternative world" works to correct the reality of established viewpoints like realism, naturalism, modernism. Magic realist texts, under this logic, are subversive texts, revolutionary against socially dominant forces.
Alternatively, the socially dominant may implement magical realism to disassociate themselves from their " power discourse ". It deals with what Naipaul has called "half-made" societies, in which the impossibly old struggles against the appallingly new, in which public corruptions and private anguishes are somehow more garish and extreme than they ever get in the so-called "North", where centuries of wealth and power have formed thick layers over the surface of what's really going on.
Writers often traveled between their home country and European cultural hubs, such as Paris or Berlin, and were influenced by the art movement of the time. Italian Massimo Bontempellifor instance, claimed that literature could be a means to create a collective consciousness by "opening new mythical and magical perspectives on reality", and used his writings to inspire an Italian nation governed by Fascism.
Rather than follow Carpentier's developing versions of "the Latin American marvelous real", Uslar-Pietri's writings emphasize "the mystery of human living amongst the reality of life".Bollywood vs.
