Retains a bleak and dreamlike tone that you won't find anywhere else.
The characters' emotional twilight is unsettlingly conveyed by this piece of celluloid mood music.
Vitti once again proves an ideal performer for Antonioni's thematics in what is probably her best role to date.
Anyone disenchanted with the vacuity of later Antonioni will find the seeds of their dissatisfaction well-rooted in the mannerism and facile anguish evident here.
All there is to the drama -- a prolonged detailed illustration of the moody surrender of the woman to a rare and elusive love. This takes, for its full illumination, a few minutes over two hours.
...sit back, suppress the subtitles so they don't distract you from the images and let the 125-minute movie suspend and substitute your consciousness like the moon passing in front the sun.
In The Eclipse... juxtaposition has become fusion: the two landscapes are made one, the visual imagery and the mental imagery effortlessly interlock.
There is intellectual rigour, cinematographer Gianni Di Venanzo's discombobulating use of angles and aspect and that superb no-show last scene.
An exhilarating slow dance of not-quite-colliding bodies.
Ennui and anxiety... pervades Antonioni's groundbreaking 1962 drama.
Returning to his recurrent themes of the desensitising impact of urban life and the hopelessness of love, Antonioni presents his bleakest portrait of the modern age ...
How wonderful that, especially in its newly finessed form, this cinematic milestone remains as pertinent, intriguing and seductive as ever.
The boldest film of Antonioni's informal trilogy in terms of language, as he makes choices that would normally and objectively be considered wrong but couldn't feel more right here, and he even uses some powerful symbolism to make us share the characters' dissatisfaction.
It's useless to try to describe it. You just have to watch it. A classic of Italian cinema, about mediocrity, and being lost, and meaninglessness.
"Siamo in media". We're in the middle.
the bored and the beautiful. stunning film, especially the uncompromising ending. get your existential angst here. i liked this more than l'avventura tho i probably need to watch that one again now...
Monad. I just wanted to say monad.
