Summary
Far from helping people to escape harsh realities to a realm of pure fantasy, fairy tales and the films that rooted themselves in their tropes and traditions played an integral role in formulating and expressing the anxieties of modernism as well as its potential for radical, magical transformation. In "Film and fairy tales", Kristian Moen examines the role played by fairy tales in shaping cinema, its culture, and its discourse during its most formative years.
