L’Eclisse Rated PG


Dir. Michelangelo Antonioni. Italy, 1962. 2h 3m. Italian/subs. Starring Alain Delon, Monica Vitti, Francisco Rabal, Louis Seigner, Lilla Brignone, Rossana Rory, Mirella Ricciardi, Cyrus Elias.

In the suburbs of Rome, a beautiful but bored young woman breaks up with her partner and embarks on a doomed affair with another man. Michaelangelo Antonioni’s ennui-soaked satire of modern life won the Jury Special Prize at the 1962 Cannes Film Festival.

'An exhilarating slow dance of not-quite-colliding bodies…One of the all-time greats. Missing it would be a form of self-abuse.’ ★★★★★ David Jenkins, Little White Lies

‘In L’Eclisse... juxtaposition has become fusion: the two landscapes are made one, the visual imagery and the mental imagery effortlessly interlock.’ Penelope Houston, BFI Sight and Sound Magazine
