Guiliana is the wife of Ugo, a plant manager in Ravenna. Recently released from the hospital after a car accident, Giuliana is in dire straits mentally, but Ugo thinks she's just hysterical. When she meets the charming Corrado, he seems sympathetic, shares her feeling of being lost, but he doesn't fully understand and his amatory advances are not what she needs. Living in the shadow of industry, surrounded by the blighted landscape of the mechanized wasteland, Guiliana faces the full horror of existential doubt alone, and modernist culture offers her no solace, comfort, or concrete prescription to alleviate her anguish

"In this book, one of the world's great filmmakers gives us a rare and extraordinary revealing glimpse into his mind and peculiarly cinematic point of view. ... here he offers thrity-three richly suggestive pieces describing ideas for films as yet unproduced. These are not stories in the usual sense, but a series of narrative or imagistic "nuclei" which will, when elaborated, grow into fully developed scripts to be modified once again in actual shooting. ... these pieces take us into the workshop of a director who is at once a visual poet, modernist, intellectual, and acute observer of the human condition"--Book jacket

Il Grido = Outcry by Michelangelo Antonioni( Visual )

69 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first and only time Antonioni abandoned the middle class in Il Grido placing Aldo, a refinery worker, at the centre. Yet Aldo's social position is not particularly significant. He wanders in a kind of no man's land, seemingly out of time and place, after the breakup of a longstanding relationship. Aldo becomes more detached as he drifts in and out of a succession of relationships. Unlike Antonioni's other male protagonists Aldo is aware of his condition. The movement of the film is interior. The episodic, non-dramatic narrative is not conventionally centred. There is virually no dramatic distinction between peripheral and central incident. External action and the autumnal-wintry landscape of the Po Valley are correlatives for Aldo's interior state. DVD

The vanquished by Bill Jensen( Visual )

34 editions published between 1952 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging the linear narrative by weaving multiple story lines and exploring a directorial style way ahead of his time, director Michelangelo Antonioni's unique triptych film, features three murders, one taking place in Paris, another in Rome, and another in London. All of the perpetrators are affluent youths, each killing for dubious motives. In the France segment, a group of adolescents kill for money, even though they don't need it; in the London segment, a poet uncovers a woman's body and tries to profit from the discovery; and in the Italian segment, a student becomes caught up in a smuggling ring, with deadly results. With elements that serve as a precursor to Blowup, Antonioni explores how modern society can produce nihilistic tendencies in the least likely characters
