LA NOTTE, 1962, Dir: Michelangelo Antonioni, 122 Minutes, Rialto Pictures, Italy/France.

In Italian with English subtitles. 

A talented but callow novelist (Marcello Mastroianni) enjoys the acclaim afforded his just-published novel, while his marriage to a well-to-do Milanese woman (Jeanne Moreau) deteriorates. As she grieves for a dying friend she once loved, he is both bemused by and attracted to the advances of other women, particularly the ravishing daughter (Monica Vitti) of a potential new benefactor. An empty evening of visiting decrepit neighborhoods, exotic nightclubs, and a swanky villa party leads to a final confrontation, which reveals the somber truth that love does not always conquer all. The second film in a famous trilogy by the legendary director Michelangelo Antonioni (L’AVVENTURA, L’ECLISSE), LA NOTTE captures the intoxicating glamour and amorality of Italy’s post-war nuovi ricchi.



THE LOVERS, 1958, Dir: Louis Malle, 90 Minutes, Janus Films, France. 

In French with English subtitles. 

Louis Malle unveiled the natural beauty of Jeanne Moreau in his breakthrough, ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS. With his follow-up, he made her a star once and for all. A deeply felt and luxuriously filmed fairy tale for grown-ups, perched on the edge between classical and New Wave cinemas, THE LOVERS presents Moreau as a restless bourgeois wife whose eye wanders from both her husband and her lover to an attractive passing stranger (Jean-Marc Bory). Thanks to its frank sexuality, THE LOVERS caused quite a stir, being censored and attacked for obscenity around the world. If today its shock has worn off, its glistening sensuality and seductive storytelling haven’t aged a day.
