BLOW-UP
1966, Warner Bros., 111 min, Italy, UK, Dir: Michelangelo Antonioni

In-demand fashion photographer David Hemmings shags half the models in London - before running into enigmatic beauty Vanessa Redgrave, who only wants a certain roll of film from him. A riddle within a riddle, Antonioni’s most famous film has often been imitated (De Palma’s BLOW OUT, Greenaway’s THE DRAUGHTSMAN’S CONTRACT). Look for a young Jane Birkin in one of her first film appearances - and for The Yardbirds mimicking The Who’s penchant for destruction in the film’s frenzied nightclub scene!

IDENTIFICATION OF A WOMAN
IDENTIFICAZIONE DI UNA DONNA
1982, Janus Films, 128 min, Italy/France, Dir: Michelangelo Antonioni

In his last movie before his debilitating stroke (he did not make another feature until 1995’s BEYOND THE CLOUDS), director Michelangelo Antonioni follows filmmaker Niccolo (Tomas Milian) as he encounters, then loses contact with two beautiful women. On a search for both a committed passion and the ideal woman for his next film, Niccolo hungrily loses himself in sex but is unable to express love. With Daniela Silverio, Christine Boisson, Veronica Lazar, Enrica Fico (the future Mrs. Antonioni) and Marcel Bozzuffi. "The most openly erotic of Antonioni's features, and…one of the most beautiful (what he does with fog in one famous sequence is particularly memorable)…" – Jonathan Rosenbaum, The Chicago Reader.


IDENTIFICATION OF A WOMAN in Italian, English and French with English subtitles.
