English term or phrase: flashback
Definition from Bedford/St. Martin's:
A narrated scene that marks a break in the narrative in order to inform the reader or audience member about events that took place before the opening scene of a work.

Example sentence(s):
  • Convoluted flashback structures are not only intellectually based, they tend to distance the viewer from that 'simple reality' they come to the movies to enjoy. It is no surprise that many great movies with complicated or innovative flashback structures were not particularly popular, not crowd-pleasers. DVDTalk.com
  • It is true that flashbacks can make the majority of the story confusing, but the concept is a bit like putting a puzzle together - you're not really sure where each piece fits or what the picture really looks like until the very end. Therein lies the payoff. streetdirectory.com
  • The flashback should be prompted by an incident, dialog, or intense action which brings a vivid memory to the character. Helium.com

  • Samtidigt vet varje läsare och författare att ett litterärt verk hänger samman på helt andra vis, via korskopplingar, återblickar, spel med symboler och metaforer, och så vidare – berättartekniska grepp som med lätthet flyttats över till filmen. - Kerouac, Joyce och pappersklaustrofobin  
  • Vad gäller narrativa grepp utmärker sig ett antal av de mest diskuterade filmerna för en specifik berättarteknik, präglad av omfattande återblickar – "flashbacks"– och ibland även av en subjektiv berättarröst. - Vic Suneson – Från svensk noir till p
