The Contrastive Analysis of Sino-US Remakes in Intercultural Communication,英语论文跨文化视野下中美翻拍电影的对比分析

Abstract Films with worldwide appeal generate the biggest revenue since the end of 20th century. Under this circumstance, the film industry has been increasingly aware of the importance of making films for the largest possible audiences, which results in “The Heat Remake”. This thesis is a study of two representative pairs of Sino-US remakes, of which display different social cultures compared with their counterparts. Under a comparative cross-cultural approach, the paper shows some cultural conflicts between China and America reflected in the films and then delves into the reasons, analyzing in how film makers from two different cultures interpret the same story transcending national boundaries. Inspirations like construction of cultural identity and extension in film cooperation, which are conducive to Sino-US cultural communication, will be given to future film makers in the end.62038

1. Introduction

“As films spread across borders, producers also saw in foreign films material they could steal, adapt or remake for their own local audiences” (Chua, 2005: 122). That’s why it’s prevailing to see “the free flow of cinematic products across national, geopolitical, cultural, and linguistic borders” ( Li Jinhua, 2011: 7) both in China and America, especially in recent years. In order to maintain its entertainment leadership in the unstable balanced power between itself and the vibrant Chinese cinemas, Hollywood appropriates and remakes some good Chinese films to persify and enrich its cultural production, and so does China for purpose of prospering its film industry. Transnational exchanges like these allow us to look into the future of Sino-US relationship in the next decades.

This thesis is a study of two representative pairs of Chinese and American film remakes. As it is widely accepted that the same narrative will be read and analyzed differently when it migrates to a different cultural structure, under a comparative cross-cultural method, the dissertation analyses each pair of transnational film remakes to see how different cultures interpret the same script or story. From the perspective of intercultural communication, it looks at some cultural conflicts between China and America toward high context and low context, collectivism and inpidualism, extended family and nuclear family, perceptual education and rational education, plus the roots behind them. With meticulous comparison and contrast, inspirations like construction of cultural identity and extension in film cooperation, which are beneficial to film makers can be obtained. That is to say, how to bring cultural universality and identity into harmony? It is critical for a remake to get this harmony, which determines its success or not while entering into another market. Taking this one step further, it makes sense in Sino-US cultural communication. 跨文化视野下中美翻拍电影的对比分析:http://www.lwfree.com/yingyu/lunwen_68080.html
