All About Eve – Mirrors of Eve and What Lies Beyond
Keywords:mirror stage, self, subject, identification, desire.
Taking as a starting point the play of identifications in All About Eve, this paper focuses on theatre as a function in the constitution of the feminine subject. Something emerges in the relation between the characters, but also something is produced beyond this relation. The theatre-function is complemented by the scansion introduced by the mirror; the mirror is a place of disjunction on the journey of the subject. Further on, we look at how this theatre-function has a correspondent in the cinematic succession of repeating, enacting and creating in Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s movie Nunvagoldoon, which allows its characters to exit the series of identifications.
