In Venice, during the spring of 1866, it is the last month of the Austrian occupation of the Veneto. The Italian government has forged a pact with Prussia, and another war of liberation in the ongoing Risorgimento is imminent. Countess Livia Serpieri, unloved by her collaborator-husband but sympathetic to the cause of freedom espoused by her patriotic cousin Roberto, meets Austrian officer Franz Mahler as she begs him to call off a duel with Roberto. She falls in love with young, philandering, and mercenary officer, the country marches to revolution, and her dedication to the cause wilts under her desire and obsession. Mesmerized by him, she betrays not only her husband and cousin, but the revolution, too, with tragic results
Il Grido = Outcry by Michelangelo Antonioni( Visual )

42 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 427 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
