molto bene

November 23, 2009

nico and i stayed in last night to watch my latest movie from the library–michelangelo antonioni’s l’avventura.

the shots were incredible, slow, moody, achey. the film is a great exploration of characters and their relationships, and yet another glimpse into the unhappy, tumultuous lives of the upper class.

monica vitti looks stunning atop italian coastal islands, hair piecey and blowing. she goes gallavanting through ancient roman towns and posh hotels, trying to justify her love for her best friend’s lover…

here’s a great scene from the beginning of the movie…(don’t worry, i won’t spoil it)

and one of my favorites from the end…
