La Notte (1961)

Italy 122m, B&W
Director: Michelangelo Antonioni; Cast: Marcello Mastroianni, Jeanne Moreau, Monica Vitti, Bernhard Wicki

la-notteLa Notte is an exploration of alienation and loneliness set within a drama about a married couple’s indifference for one another as reflected in the events of a single day. Giovanni and Lidia practically sleep walk their way through the film, despite a number of situations which should have sparked their emotions. A cold hearted portrayal of love lost, La Notte is a bleak cinematic journey through a slowly developed plot in which nothing is resolved (Klaus Ming March 2016).
