La reconstruction de l’identité argentine dans la Telenovela Montecristo (Argentine, Telefe, 2006)

Abstract : Montecristo is an Argentinian screenplay showed by telefe in 2006. It is the screen version of Alexandre Dumas' novel. At first, this research is based on the issue of the renewal of the form. The drama includes the reality into the fictional story in a paroxysmal way. This, indeed, apart from being the adaptation of a story, sets Edmond Dantes' adventures in a post-dictatorial Argentina in which background we can find tortures, the civilians' collaboration, the desaparecidos and the search for an identity. In 1976, in fact, the country was subdued to one of the fiercest dictatorships all over Latin America (1976-1983). In this work, we will furthermore analyze the social and cultural evolution from the decade of the 70s up to 2006 in order to determine in which context the new anti dictatorial ideas began to rise. The pivotal point of this work is represented by the issues of identity and memory. In effect, throughout this investigation on Montecristo, we wonder if the public identifies itself with Santiago to such an extent as to live, through his adventures, the search of its own identity. In this sense, we'll go deep inside the concept of cultural subject, defined in a complex, heterogeneous, controversial context, in which the semiotic ideological characters are allocated
