The only other book I know that does such a good job in combining different approaches to narrative is Seymour Chatman's "Story and Discourse". Of course, unlike Chatman, Rimmon-Kenan focuses on written narratives (Chatman also deals with film narratives), but much of what is said can be applied to films as well.
Sections include: events, characters, time, characterization, focalization, levels and voices, and speech representation.
