Beruf: Reporter( Visual )

3 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In einer persönlichen Krise nutzt ein Fernsehjournalist die Gele- genheit, die Identität eines anderen aufzunehmen. Weder die Flucht vor der eigenen Vergangenheit noch der Versuch, in politischem Engagement den verlorenen Lebenssinn zurückzugewinnen, gelingen dem Engländer, der sich passiv seinem Tod entgegentreiben läßt. Antonioni resümiert - vor einer fünfjährigen Schaffenspause - die thematischen und filmischen Basismotive seines bisherigen Werks: eine pessimistische Analyse der entfremdeten Kommunikations- und Wahrnehmungsformen der modernen Welt. Die kolportagehafte Handlung ist nur Vorwand und Hintergrund für einen meisterhaft inszenierten visuellen Diskurs über den Scheincharakter des Wirklichen und die Realität der Fiktion

Filling their days with endless drilling, the soldiers of Fortezza Bastiani spend the long nights wondering about an enemy no one has ever seen. As the days stretch into months, the strain of waiting for attack takes its toll on Drago's comrades: sadistic major Mattis, sardonic Lieutenant Simeon, cynical medic Rovine, and humiliated Captain Hortiz, who lives with the shame of having once sounded the alarm against an attack that vanished before anyone else could see."--Container
