English term or phrase: bookend technique
Definition from Reel Club:
In popular cinema, the bookend technique is most often used to refer to a parallel between the opening and closing sequences or shots in a film. The first scene is re-visioned, with only minor changes, in the film’s final scene leaving the audience with a feeling of completion; what was started is now finished.

Example sentence(s):
  • Video essayist Jacob T. Swinney captured our attention in a big way with a simple video that juxtaposed the first frames of a film with the last. He's back with the third installment of his popular "First and Final Frames" series, complete with some of the best films of the year, to give us the chance to explore, once again, the way films are bookended and what can be learned from it. No Film School
  • But Soderbergh knows how to make a sleek thriller, and such keen professionalism would be missed, from the film’s bookends and fine cynicism as chilly as the ending of “Contagion,” to its prismatic, centripetal play with who the central character really is. New City Film

Definition from نخيل عراقي:
التكرار هو أداة أدبية تكرر نفس الكلمات أو العبارات عدة مرات لجعل الفكرة أكثر وضوحا. هناك عدة أنواع من التكرار يشيع استخدامه في كل من النثر والشعر . كجهاز بلاغي ، يمكن أن يكون كلمة أو عبارة أو جملة كاملة أو خطا شاعريا يتكرر للتأكيد على أهميته في النص بأكمله. لا يتم تمييز التكرار كشخصية للكلام فحسب ، بل هو أكثر من مجرد أداة بلاغية

والتكرار هو أمر نجده في البنية السردية السينمائية ، يظهر واضحا في أفلام المغامرة والحروب ، وهو يعمل على (إعادة) تكوين بنية التكرار لغايات معينة وبيان أنواع الأعضاء مجتمعة داخل الهيكل ، حجمها وعددها وأشكال انتقالها وترتيب ظهورها ونسبها التمثيل وعلاقاتها المحتملة (التداخل أو التداخل الجزئي أو التناقض أو التوسع ). قبل كل شيء ، يربط تحليل هذه التداخلات بوظائف الهيكل على مستوى الحبكة والمعنى والخطابة ، بما في ذلك الاختلافات العامة
