L'eclisse 1962 Criterion Collection
The concluding chapter of Michelangelo Antonioni’s informal trilogy on contemporary malaise (following L’avventura and La notte), L’eclisse tells the story of a young woman who leaves one lover and drifts into a relationship with another. Using the architecture of Rome as a backdrop for the doomed affair, Antonioni achieves the apotheosis of his style in this return to the theme that preoccupied him the most: the difficulty of connection in an alienating modern world.

Vittoria (Monica Vitti) works as a translator in Rome, but she is feeling the pressure of her relationship with fianc Riccardo (Francisco Rabal) to the extent that this morning they are on the verge of breaking up. Their conversation is halting, they are not seeing eye to eye, and their love is heading for emotional disaster, so before things get any worse, Vittoria walks out into the cool air and heads for the centre of the city, even though Riccardo follows her, but she is in no mood for his pleading... but does she need a new man?
Piero (Alain Delon), a stockbroker, casts his romantic gaze in Vittoria's direction...
