Cronaca di un amore - cinema review
directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, starring Lucia Bosè, Massimo Girotti
b/w, 110', 35mm, restored original version
An industrialist's wife has a secret romance with a younger man that she met and fell in love with many years before. Passion will bring the couple to plot the death of the industrialist. Antonioni's striking debut at once distances itself from neorealist Cinema, both on a thematic and stylistic level, showing the angst and emptiness of the bourgeoisie and using innovative long uninterrupted shots. The young Lucia Bosè gives a great performance in her first major role.
