This book investigates the sensuous qualities of narration in the feature length fiction film. The Sense of Film Narration examines films that combine different types of images and sounds in a way that brings out their sensuous qualities in an especially vivid manner. It demonstrates that a film's sensuous qualities can be intimately connected to its storytelling processes. Through close textual analysis of films such as Amores Perros, Double Take, Toy Story 2, Palindromes and Magnolia, this book highlights how films can make viewers particularly aware of their senses in order to help them understand the events, behaviours and attitudes within a film's fictional world. The crash scenes in Amores Perros; films that feature images of different textures/properties (e.g. b&w versus colour; digital video vs. film): Double Take and Toy Story 2 & 3; films that feature multiple voiceover: All About Eve, Happy Together, Gummo, and Magnolia and films that feature multiple actors playing the same character: Don't Look Back, The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, Palindromes, and I'm Not There.
