This chapter deals with the key themes of nineteenth-century realism and of Lukács's model of cinematic realism, establishing central themes and characteristics of an intuitionist-realist model of cinematic realism. The focus is on identifying distinctive features of the intuitionist and Lukácsian cinematic realism, and on relating these realist traditions to more general philosophical concerns of realism, and to other forms of contemporary film theory. The chapter assesses the significance of the nineteenth-century Lukácsian and intuitionist-realist traditions in relation to the general and pressing question of the importance of realism by suggesting ways forward for the further development of studies into theories and practices of cinematic realism.

Keywords:   nineteenth-century realism, intuitionist-realist model, Lukácsian cinematic realism, contemporary film theory, cinematic realism
