La notte

Michelangelo Antonioni / IT, FR, 1960 / 122 min.

Stylised drama about spiritual emptiness in the post-war period. Marcello Mastroianni plays Milanese writer Giovanni, suffering from writer’s block, Jeanne Moreau his alienated wife Lidia and Monica Vitti the bored flirt.

poster La notte (Michelangelo Antonioni, IT/FR 1960)
In La notte, the attractively presented life of the Milanese elite – living in gleaming modern flats, men and women alike in bespoke suits, driving around the brand new orbital roads in sports cars – is deceptive; behind the façade of good taste, clinking ice cubes in the Campari and polite, cultivated conversation, lurks tedium.
