I've only seen Blow-up by Antonioni and it became one of my favorite films- unfortunately, like karina, his movies are unavailable here, I watched blow up on TV and havent seen anything else from him ever since.
Monica looks rather interesting, I want to see L'Eclise.

oh thanks!.
I've written down all the movies I have to see whilst breathing, but the task of finding them is becoming nearly impossible. I should do it via amazon, but my access to a credit card is pretty limited.

Last semester in film studies we watched L'Avventura and I thought Monica Vitti was excellent in it. She's very beautiful too and I couldn't imagine her with a different nose.

Monica, along with Claudia Cardinale is my all time favourite italian actress.

p.s. She looks like earlier, better versions of Milagros Schmoll and that girl from American Dreams.

a very impressive collection of pictures,karina.thanks!!!but it doesn´t leave me much to contribute .

antonioni is one of my favourite directors and monica vitti was simply perfect as his heroine and muse.from his trilogy la notte,l´avventura and l´eclisse i like the latter the most becuase i think it is the quintessence of his work.the total estrangement between human beings,the unconnectedness (?)between them and the world they live in.a world that has become too fast,too modern,too cold.monica vitti walks through this world with an indistinct,obscure expression on her face and a certain astonishment regarding the world that surrounds her.there´s always a glipmse of hope underneath her world-weariness that she might find love ,a relatiuonship ,something real in this unreal world that is completely drained of emotions.in l´avventura and l´eclisse it seems as if she had found it but in the end it´s nothing more than an illusion.there is no bridge.no hope left.
i have only seen her antonioni-films.it would really interest me to see her in films by other directors.but she was simply perfect as antonioni´s heroine,so that´s enough for me to admire her.

Ps.:now if only somebody started a thread on silvana mangano and lucia bosé.

karina,it makes me glad that you liked them.therefore some more ...
source:ebay

when i came across the poster for il deserto rosso/red desert i remembered that i didn´t mention this film even though she gave such an incredible performance.i don´t know if i´m alone with this but i found this film almost painful to watch and the intensitiy that is created by vitti´s performance and the hostile surroundings and sounds antonioni chose hard to bear. one almost relives the fears and nightmares of the protagonist.it would interest me to know if the film had a similar effect on others .
