As in the movie, Malena, Renado's thought is presented by a film in the movie. (He was watching a film in/inside the movie, and the film revealed his thought.)

And this kind of presentation is used quite often, I'd like to know whether this has a terminology or not. And if there is such terminology, what is it.

  • Reminds me of Scrubs, and JD's daydreams. Perhaps 'vignettes' would be an appropriate term? – Longshanks Aug 12 '17 at 6:50

I guess you mean the film in the movie is a symbol, a physical metaphor or a metaphoric representation of an abstract concept.
