La Notte


Location la: Redstone Theater

Dir. Michelangelo Antonioni. 1962, 122 mins. DCP. With Jeanne Moreau, Marcello Mastroianni, Monica Vitti. A talented but callow novelist (Mastroianni) enjoys the acclaim afforded his just-published novel while his marriage to a well-to-do Milanese woman (Moreau) deteriorates. As she grieves for a dying friend she once loved, he is both bemused by and attracted to the advances of other women, particularly the ravishing daughter (Vitti) of a potential new benefactor. The second film in Michelangelo Antonioni’s trilogy (including L’Avventura and L’Eclisse), La Notte captures the intoxicating glamour and amorality of Italy’s post-war nuovi ricchi.
