Summary/Abstract: The flatness of moving images break the illusion of reality of the spectator and it is usually considered to be a self-reflexive device. However a special phenomenon, a frequent use of flat surfaces within the filmic image can be observed in cases of some Eastern Asian films. The author argues that this phenomenon is not merely a stylistic device but a reflection of a special way of thinking. The study tries to determine the cardinal reason of the phenomenon of constructions of flat quality in moving images and present the specificities of its appearances in this perspective. Parallels are drawn with the Bizantian icon representations and the aspects of the introvert personality in Jung’s definition. Specific scenes from the films of Kim Ki Duk, Wong Kar Wai, Hsiao-Hsien Hou, Tran Anh Hung, Koreeda Hirokazu are analysed.
