In, jag vill in : Kvinnornas resa genom adaptionsprocessen av Den allvarsamma leken 2016

Detta är en Magister-uppsats från Södertörns högskola/Institutionen för kultur och lärande

Sammanfattning: The aim of this thesis is to investigate how the female characters of the Swedish novel The Serious Game (Den allvarsamma leken) by Hjalmar Söderberg (1912) are represented in the film adaptation from 2016, a film adaptation by Pernilla August (director). The thesis also asks what the adapted screenplay by Lone Scherfig can reveal about how the novel’s characters are transformed through the adaptation process. The study has two main purposes: (1) to investigate the film adaptation as a process by considering the adapted screenplay as an interstitial and at the same time autonomous work bridging the novel and the final film, and (2) to investigate how the specific form and structure of the screenplay, as well as contextual and industrial aspects are of some significance for the representation of the female characters in the final film. The analysis of the female characters’ transformation through the adaptation process uses a combination of screenwriting theory and adaptation theory in order to explore the relationship between the novel, the adapted screenplay and the final film. One of the main conclusions of the study is that the male characters of the novel are transformed into being oppressive towards the female characters in more direct manners. As a result, the female characters liberation is somewhat transformed into a liberation from individual men rather than from vast structural, political or legal oppressions. It also shows that this representation of the novels characters gradually transforms according to this tendency in the adaptation process. The study also shows how the screenplay can be seen as a textual context in film adaptation.   Full English title: “In, I long to get in.
