This review is from: Story of a Love Affair - (Mr Bongo Films) (1950) [DVD] (DVD)
This film by Michelangelo Antonioni was entirely charming in its deliverance and atmosphere. Anotonioni's depiction of this beautifully shot film is as ever laden with his trademark signs of unconventionality and symbolism and shows an incredibly personal snap shot of a mans life as he struggles to overcome his jealous nature and suspicious prejudices towards his wife.
A fantastic performance by Lucia Bose is perfectly balanced by the character of her lover, Guido (Massimo Girotti) which ensures that the film ropes the viewer into the dark and twirling worlds of clashing emotions and stark, vivid imagery.
A deeply enjoyable film, and a stirring performance from all makes this film a delightful addition to all who relish the cinematic compositions of the renowned director Michelangelo Antonioni and his unique style.
