*Abstract:*

Using the post-Jungian theory applied in cinema as a base, this
presentation will look deeper into the complex amalgam of ideas
throughout Japanese narrative and visual arts history to shed light on
the connections and roots of some repetitive narrative patterns
(motives, heroes and heroines) present in contemporary Japanese film. It
will mainly focus on the “Wanderer Archetype” in Japanese cinema
history, and the way this archetype has influenced the shaping of film
genres, as well as the shaping of masculinity and the national identity
in Japan throughout different historical settings. **
