FRA/ITA | 1960 | dir. Michelangelo Antonioni, with Marcello Mastroianni, Jeanne Moreau, Monica Vitti

The second film in Antonioni’s ‘trilogy’, La Notte can be seen as his cool riposte to Fellini’s exuberant portrait of the decadent, idle rich in La Dolce Vita. Moving from a hectic Milan afternoon through an all-night debauch to a tentative dawn, the story centres on a successful novelist (Marcello Mastroianni), who is losing his desire to write, and his disaffected wife (Jeanne Moreau), who is losing her desire to desire. Winner of the Golden Bear at the 1961 Berlin International Film Festival.
