This research re-questions the concept of cinematic narrator, in order to evaluate the understanding towards narrative cinema and its operations. Through a case study on the feature film Narratage (2017), this research attempts to problematize how film arranges the logic of its storytelling through narrative structure and narration, as well as how the elements of film style contribute to the narrativity of the cinema. To answer these questions, a narrative analysis based on plot segmentation and close textual reading is used to read Narratage. Based on the result of the analysis, it could be argued that the cinematic narrator does not only refer to the “figure of the storyteller”, but instead relates more widely with how the audiovisual enunciation is utilized to form the narrative itself.
