Description The article is dedicated to the interpretation of cultural codes within the framework of the intersemiotic translation of the novel by Romain Gary "Promise at Dawn" into cinematographic language. As research material, we used the novel "Promise at Dawn" (1960) and the film by Éric Barbier (2017) porting the same name. As a theory basis for the article, we use the division of translation into intralinguistic, interlinguistic and intersemiotic, proposed by Roman Jakobson. The specifics of intersemiotic translation is determined by the presence of several interpretative levels in it, which inevitably involves a dialogue with the source text. The focus of the article is on the methods of recoding cultural meanings and the opportunities that the semiotic system of film language provides for this, and the modifications used for this transformation. Special attention is dedicated to the transformation of the verbal into non-verbal and the role of the artistic details in creating the perception of the world within the framework of the movie.
