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

Il Grido = Outcry by Michelangelo Antonioni( Visual )

36 editions published between 1957 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 393 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

Michelangelo Antonioni: an introduction by Pierre Leprohon( Book )

9 editions published between 1960 and 1982 in French and Italian and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1960s and 1970s, Michelangelo Antonioni (1912-2007) forged a cinematic language that reflected a changed, postwar world. His early successes, including L'avventura (1960) and La notte (1961), reshaped film drama by focusing so intently on characters (particularly couples) that plot was often a secondary concern. He also moved away from the social realism of his Italian peers. His most notable English-language films, from Blow Up (1966) to Zabriskie Point (1970), engage contemporary politics and modern social alienation
