The idea of this contribution is that it is possible to show a level of re-semantisation in correlation with the processes of re-narration, of course a narrative already shared and consolidated in the discursive circulation within a semiosphere. The re-narration favours a re-translation of the text that brings out aspects of the story that are present but not already evident, offering a new meaning, precisely, by re-semantising. We will use some partially heterogeneous reflections but aimed at defining the horizon of the resemantisation process through re-narration. There are four passages: the narrated and re-narrated myth of the oral tradition; some aspects of psychoanalytic therapeutic practice; the work of Tom Stoppard Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead; four contemporary cinematographic works. Our attention will be focused on the latter in particular, as examples of the process we are observing here
