Retrouver un nouveau rapport à l’espace : Wild et Into the wild, un mythe contemporain de la nature

Abstract : This essay deals with natural space in two American and contemporary road movies: Into the wild (Sean Penn, 2007) and Wild (Jean-Marc Vallée, 2014). It is about understanding what is the role and the place of this space in these two movies: how is it represented, what is its importance in the story and the narration, but also what are the possible interactions which exist between it and the characters; and what all those elements bring up regarding our current world and in particular the American society, from which the movies come. In order to do this, I use several approaches, whether aesthetic, narrative or even purely filmic analyzes to describe and study the space offered to us by Into the wild and Wild ; or a cultural approach that allows me to understand what are the origins and references that feed and inspire these two movies.
