La Signora Senza Camelie Reviews

July 23, 2019
Fine performance by Lucia Bose. Good atmosphere of raffish underworld of Grade-B moviemaking. A minor-key masterpiece.

One of the better early films of Michelangelo Antonioni.
March 16, 2015
Perhaps the most unjustly neglected of Michelangelo Antonioni's early features.

An impeccable early scene has Antonioni defining mise-en-scène before your eyes -- a torrid kiss is rehearsed on a bed, the camera dollies in and the sketch becomes a fresco, with off-screen whispers acting as meta-reminders.

Although casting a dismissive eye over the Cinecittá ballyhoo, Antonioni is more concerned with the psychological impact of Bosé's lonely predicament.

The resulting cocktail is slight on psychology, but invariably stunning to behold.

Antonioni's exquisite film is obviously a comment on the fickle nature of his chosen industry, but more importantly (considering the nature of his subsequent work) a formative parable on society's unsustainable expectations of women.
