Summary/Abstract: The compositional manipulations (literary, film and theatrical) that disturb linearity of the story can be removed in procedures that order the reception of the film. The reader or viewer can put his or her own story in the “right” order – using the logic applied in solving a riddle. However when the disturbance does not lead to the mixing of elements of the story or obscuring information, but is there to introduce disorder and lack of agreement inside the story, the receptive combination often proves to be insufficient. Therefore, in order to organize the narrative one needs to apply interpretation. Jakubowski demonstrates this using the example of Luis Bunuel’s "That Obscure Object of Desire", a film in which the director asked two different actresses to play the lead female role.
