Allegorical structure expands the meaning universe of a movie. Exploring the elements indicating allegorical structure is the only way to define this new form of a meaning universe. If one can define the two-sided relationship between allegorical structure and these elements, the allegorical structure in the movie will become clear and the movie will be open to allegorical reading. In the present study, elements such as color, frame, sound, and character view in the movie Malena were considered as dynamic tools. The allegorical structure in the movie was analyzed by explaining the relationships between these dynamic tools. The code-based structure in a movie is based on these relationships and all the dramaturgy takes place in this universe. The present study investigates the whole process and reveals the movie's analyzable structure by giving examples from the movie itself as well as investigating the process of building allegory as a dramaturgical element.
