Il Grido = Outcry by Michelangelo Antonioni( Visual )

40 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 426 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
