Abstract

Bluebeard's fairy tale, a story interpolated both into the novel The Piano, a novel and the film The Piano, provides a framework that addresses patriarchal and sexist ideologies. Campion casts doubt on the spectator's mind about certainties regarding the relationship between the sexes, sexual and social roles, and underlines how roleplaying is not a natural, but a historical, socila and cultural construct.
