They don't make them anymore like this
What a great movie this is. I saw it on TV5. I liked the story, co-written by Tonino Guerra, the guy who also (co-)wrote a lot of Michelangelo Antonioni's movies and that is something you notice. The whole movie breaths the atmosphere of an Antonioni-movie. Strange that De Seta didn't make much more films for the cinema but started working for television. Anyway, I liked this movie. As I said the story but also the way it was put on the screen in that slow sixties manner. So you can really enjoy the beautiful images, cars, landscapes, people. This is cinema the way they don't make it anymore. Show don't tell. No psychology, just images and you as the spectator can draw your own conclusions about the characters on the screen.
