Abstract
Abstract (E): What impact do contingencies have on protagonists in narrative film? Using examples from films by Eric Rohmer and Chantal Akerman, I consider this question from a metaphysical point of view in order to suggest how the perceived dichotomy between classical and modernist cinema is not as straightforward as it may at first appear.
