Critic Reviews for Le amiche

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (16)

  • Antonioni turns a glossy romantic melodrama of modern prosperity inside out to reveal the essence of modernity itself.

    May 25, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Antonioni's ability to use the screen's illusion of depth or the way he lends an eloquence to the space between characters is a marvel. How he has these people stand is so much more expressive than anything they say.

    July 1, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The expressive elegance of Antonioni's camera movements -- the way he glides around a scene, composing and recomposing the human figures within it to suggest psychological patterns and unacknowledged erotic connections -- still has the power to amaze.

    June 18, 2010 | Rating: 5/5
  • Long before the he put Monica Vitti through the existentialist-ennui wringer, Michelangelo Antonioni gave the world this muted melodrama about urban females dealing with boorish men, banal modern life and the occasional suicide attempt.

  • An unexpected treasure.

    June 15, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Though seldom seen now, Antonioni's fourth feature is one of his greatest films, in which diverse plot strands, character psychology, and a masterful control of the camera are perfectly fused.

Audience Reviews for Le amiche

  • Dec 20, 2008
    Based on Cesare Pavese's novella, this film examines the complex interplay and emotional intensity of relations between a bourgeois group of women. The pervasive cynicism within the novella is concentrated in Momina's character. The film also emphasizes the burgeoning and evolving role of the independent woman. This early work shows the development of Antonioni's unique framing and narration methods, particularly in the beach scene. It's rare to have an ensemble cast deliver such strong performances!
