An attempt of interdisciplinary research, in which the methods of literary works analysis are applied to film narratives, is undertaken. The narratological analysis of two films about Bluebeard is conducted, and the specificity of reproducing narrator’s voice and characters’ points of view is revealed. The features of the focalization, temporal structure, and background music of film narratives are analyzed.
