Summary/Abstract: The art of the film musical at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century has been greatly influenced by contemporary mass culture. If the specific aspects and issues related to the personal taste have been left aside, and have been turned to the aspect of meaning and aesthetics, an obvious connection with postmodernism can be easily noticed. Given with the premise, that the film musical genre is mainly related to postmodernism in arts, which requires a different approach to artistic analysis, this article focuses on the thesis stating that semiotic instruments are particularly useful in determining the specifics of the aesthetic phenomenon of the film musical genre.
