Tells the story of a young woman who leaves one lover only to drift into a relationship with another.

Michelangelo Antonioni's L'eclisse( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Italian and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alongside L'Avventura and La Notte, L'Eclisse completes director Michelangelo Antonionis ambitious 60s trilogy on doomed relationships in a fractured world. The tale involves a woman, Vittoria (Monica Vitti, The Red Desert), who has just suffered the break-up of an imperfect relationship with a staunch intellectual (Francisco Rabal). Piero (Alain Delon, The Leopard), a brash young stockbroker, casts his romantic gaze in Vittoria's direction and Vittorias resolve gradually relents, precipitating a tentative affair. Yet their innermost fears play upon them in ways that go against an honest expression of their love and against a lasting relationship. The winner of a Special Jury prize at Cannes, this exquisitely performed and photographed drama refines Antonionis thematic preoccupation with the difficulties of communication and the impossibility of love. A masterpiece of technique and composition, LEclisse is a challenging and enigmatic work and a cornerstone of 1960s European cinema

[Modernism : Michaelangelo Antonioni. No. 2]( Visual )

Antonioni's films are the most radical examples in the cinema of 'the aestheticising of anxiety through ambiguity and indetermination' (P. Adams Sitney). Antonioni dissolves narrative and subjectivity in both The Eclipse (1962) and Identification (1980) because he finds that assumptions about the world received through narrative conventions are no longer adequate to render the uncertainty of modern life. Consequently, his films 'seem to hover on the brink of some ultimate memory loss' (David Thomson). Two scenes involving the dissolution of relationships and the narratives - the conclusion of The Eclipse and the break-up in the fog in Identification - are seminal passages in modern cinema
