Abstract [en]

My intention with this essay has been to examine how men’s tears are portrayed in three chosen films and what their crying does to their masculinity. In my analysis I have used the concept of hegemonic masculinity. I have worked from the assumption that in our culture men’s crying is problematic in some sense. By using both a semiotic and a discursive method of analysis I have investigated why and how these men are crying, and I have mapped out the similarities and differences between the three films. My conclusion is that the effect on the crying man’s masculinity is largely dependant on the degree of his previous fulfillment of hegemonic masculinity.
