Abstract

In Paddington Bear series, the director uses metaphorical narrative techniques to describe the experiences of Paddington Bear after he immigrated to the UK. The abundant expressions of metaphors, symbols, contrasts and other rhetorical devices have greatly enriched the connotations of the two films. They also trigger laughters as well as ponderings from the viewers over the director's ingenuity and his intended humanistic feelings. This paper explores how metaphorical techniques have been employed to help to realize the main theme of game and symbiosis in Paddington Bear series, namely the game and symbiosis of immigrant and local cultures, the game and symbiosis of dream and reality, and the game and symbiosis of good and evil.
