This article examines the relationship between the film adaptations Fight Club (David Fincher 1999) and Enduring Love (Roger Michell 2004) in their attempt to transfer to the screen the theme of the double or to suggest relevant implications about the psychological condition of the characters. The analysis develops within the framework of interpretation processes that are relevant to cinema's ontology and form; thus it focuses on the cinematic codes that each film employs in order to construct a consistent style. This leads to a discussion which activates and suggests ways of reading the relationship between an adaptation and its source text by emphasizing the significance of form, style and cinematic space.

  • Adaptation, or the conversion of oral, historical or fictional narratives into stage drama has been common practice for centuries. In our own time the processes of cross-generic transformation continue to be extremely important in theatre as well as in the film and other media industries. Adaptation and the related areas of translation and intertextuality continue to have a central place in our culture with a profound resonance across our civilisation.
