LOVE SEASON - THE ECLIPSE
With Valentine’s Day making its imposing presence known in February, we are celebrating, commiserating, ridiculing and generally contemplating all types of Love with our month long season.
As the third film in Antonioni's trilogy about the fragility of relationships, The Eclipse unfolds in early 60s Rome, where translator, Vittoria (Monica Vitta) breaks up with her lover and begins a tentative affair with her mother's charming stockbroker Piero (Alain Delon). The plot is minimal and the cinematography is monochrome: what's extraordinary is how Antonioni creates and sustains the atmosphere of alienation, and the striking performances from the leading actors. The Eclipse won the Special Jury Prize at the 1962 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Palme d'Or.
