Title Dignity and meaning. Film narrative and mental disorders in It´s such a beautiful day (Don Hertzfeldt, 2012) Summary Our paper tries to propose a concrete analysis of the movie It´s such a beautiful day (Don Hertzfeldt, 2012), exploring the connections between the movie´s narrative and the mental disorder. It´s a relevant object of study for, at least, two main reasons: In the first place, it´s the first analysis of the movie published in Spanish. In the second place, it offers a new perspective in the relations between film analysis and mental disorders. In order to achieve our goal, we will combine two different kind of analytical tools: the classical techniques developed by the narratology studies and some of the most relevant parameters of the philosophical production of the XXth century – specifically, the ones related with the treatment of the reality and his phenomenological doubts. The paper is structured in three main narrative sections: A. The relations between space, time and mental disorder. B. The broken structure of the movie, with the different narrative cores and C. The enunciation system of the movie and its own system of narrators. Keywords Film Analysis; Film Narrative; Mental disorder; It´s such a beautiful day; Don Hertzfeldt.
