Summary/Abstract: The paper seeks to prove that theatre and cinema are interconnected not only on a thematic level, but also structurally. Different cultural trends that have shaped literature and theatre in their development ever since the Antiquity have paved and inspired the way of nonlinear art cinema. Starting from Aristotle’s Poetics on down to classical to romantic to symbolist to modern avant-garde, the manner of presenting the plot of a story ramps up and transforms the nonlinear narrative into a whole new way of thinking, feeling and presenting artist’s point of view on screen. All this was possible because of centuries of inherited cultural tradition and experience stored away in the subconscious mind of European artists/ filmmakers.
