Abstract: Using the example of the film Black Swan (2010), directed by Darren Aronofsky, this paper will question the relationship between man and animal. We will show the basic characteristics of Darren Aronofsky’s directing style, and in so doing we will warn that the works of film art are often not to be seen exclusively in the context of structural components. The centre of our interest is the questioning of relations between black-white, culture-nature, man-animal, with all of which we will try to show that the tragic fate of the heroine is primarily associated with the repressive and narcissistic moment which greatly marks the life of a modern man.
