L'Eclisse [VHS] 
|You Save:||£1.03 (10%)|
This film by Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni completed a trilogy about doomed relationships in the modern world, and won the 1962 Cannes Special Jury Prize. Vittoria (Monica Vitti) is a young woman who breaks up with her lover Ricardo (Francisco Rabal), a bookish intellectual, and instead takes up with brash stockbroker Piero (Alain Delon). However, there are still emotional ties between Vittoria and Ricardo. The final breakdown of Vittoria's emotional state is symbolically mirrored by Antonioni's montage of a deserted, dying city.

Update: 26/08/08. Just watched this yet again. The sort of film one can come back to, time and time again. (So long as one likes the style!) Alain Delon's character possibly lacks real development, perhaps, so as to reflect the superficial environment in which he plys his trade. (A stock exchange.) To call this film "visionary" is an understatement. Years ahead of its time.
