LA NOTTE (Masters of Cinema) (Blu-ray) Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

One of the masterworks of 1960s cinema, La notte [The Night] marked yet another development in the continuous stylistic evolution of its director, Michelangelo Antonioni - even as it solidified his reputation as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. La notte is Antonioni's Twilight of the Gods, but composed in cinematic terms. Examined from a crane-shot, it's a sprawling study of Italy's upper middle-class; seen in close-up, it's an x-ray of modern man's psychic desolation. Two of the giants of film-acting come together as a married couple living in crisis: Marcello Mastroianni (La dolce vita, 8-1/2) and Jeanne Moreau (Jules et Jim, Bay of Angels). He is a renowned author and public intellectual; she is the wife. Over the course of one day and the night into which it inevitably bleeds, the pair will come to re-examine their emotional bonds, and grapple with the question of whether love and communication are even possible in a world built out of profligate idylls and sexual hysteria. Photographed in rapturous black-and-white by the great Gianni di Venanzo (8-1/2, Giulietta degli spiriti), La notte presents the beauty of seduction, then asks: When did this occur - this seduction of Beauty? The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Michelangelo Antonioni's haunted odyssey for the first time ever on Blu-ray. Special Features: New 1080p presentation of the film in its original 1.66:1 aspect ratio with previously censored sequences restored for the first time. New and improved English subtitles Original Italian Theatrical Trailer 56-page booklet with an essay by film-critic and scholar Brad Stevens, and the transcript of a lengthy Q&A conducted in 1961 with Antonioni upon the film’s release.

Classic drama from legendary Italian director Michaelangelo Antonioni. Walking through the dilapidated streets of Milan, stopping and staring aimlessly out at the world, is strikingly beautiful Lydia (Jeanne Moreau). Her husband, Giovanni (Marcello Mastroianni), is a popular author whose newest publication is being celebrated with a signing. When Lydia returns home later that night, she is unresponsive to Giovanni, and acts bored and aloof. Giovanni decides to take Lydia to a nightclub in town where they watch African dancers perform acrobatic cabaret acts with full wine glasses. But Lydia is still bored, so Giovanni takes her to a friend's elegant cocktail party, where they both stay all night, drifting from one flirtation to the next, uninterested in each other. An emotional and inconclusive conversation between the couple ends out the night as the sun rises.
