ABSTRACT

Animated films currently occupy a large share of the film market. A number of outstanding animated films that the audience is delighted in talking about appears throughout the domestic and foreign. The author taking two animated films, Nezha: Birth of the Demon Child and Your Name, as examples, refers to relevant theories of psychoanalytic criticism and takes Lacan's mirroring theory and identity mechanism as the main research field, to deeply analyze the setting of mirroring characters in the two cases and the structure of the narrative mode. Lacan's mirroring theory has exerted a profound influence on the movie-watching mechanism, narrative structure and the audience's psychology.
