Gérard Genette has given a significant contribution to the incorporation of the metalepsis from rhetorical studies into narratology studies and, even more importantly, to the strong drift of the latter towards film studies. However, among many suggestions adopted by scholars, some of the more provocative ones have remained in the backdrop: he has interpreted as metaleptic instances the way in which words and images interact in the visualisation of the stories and memories. Gradually the metalepsis has ended up expanding its boundaries, colonising seemingly unrelated territories of filmic representation. Has the time come to accept the challenge to redraw the metalepsis’ possible boundaries?
