Realism can also have different forms within a given medium. A painting could, for example, be photorealistic but depict Greco-Roman gods battling on a field. Similarly, a painting could be very abstract but depict something understood as realistic, such as two people having a conversation over coffee. The "Kitchen-Sink" dramas of the 1950s are an example of one form of realism in the {{television}} medium.

* Flaubert's realism emerged as a reaction against the Romantics, who he viewed a suicidally melodramatic. His work is about toning down and checking that emotion. For example, in Felicite, the main character's love relationships with her parent and her motherly relationship to her employeer's daughter are much more important than her love her affair.

However, Flaubert himself had doubts about the "realist" label feeling that his condemnations of superficial romanticism was easily mistaken for superficial realism.

* Travolta's opening monologue for ''{{Swordfish}}'' mentions realism and asserts that True Art is Realistic, which is ironic considering how unrealistic the movie itself is.

Evidently, [[YourMileageMayVary opinions vary]] on the topic of realism. It shares a thread of origin with {{Romanticism}}, and is more or less the supertrope of {{Naturalism}}.

** Fellini was reacting to this by emphasizing the personal as well psychological imagery borrowed from Jung. In 8 1/2, a neorealist repeatedly derides the Fellini stand-in for talking about women rather than social problems.

*Italian Neorealism was, at one point, one of the great cinematic forces in the world. It grew out of Italian nationalist cinema after the war and focused on the problems of overlooked people rather than powerful heroes.

*Realism was reacted against rather violently by the autors in Soviet states. In Stalinist films straightforward narratives that emphasized the economics conditions of the working class were violently enforced. Anything else was derided as decadent. Emphasis was also placed on the "objective" rather than the "personal".
**Tarkovsky rebelled against this by emphasizing that nature was more important than human life and that, in human life, we rarely get answers to our questions.
**Parajanov rebelled against this by emphasizing symbolism drawn from native Ukrainian culture to tell stories that seem rather small or trivial such as the life of a single poet or a musician trying to get a wife.

*Maupassant, Flaubert's protege, had a similar style. When he depicts people at war, he focuses on their fears, anxieties and sacrifices. His work also incorporates the developing Scientific Method. In L'Horla, when the character encounters an unknown being, he tries to study it. This was a good 40 years before Lovecraft emerged on the scene.
