Three seperate stories set and shot in Rome, Paris and London portraying juvenile delinquents in post-war Europe and suggesting something of the aimlessness and moral confusion of this generation. French and English censors banned the part of the film dealing with their respective country, while the Rome episode displeased the Italians by depicting their youngsters as neo-Facists and had to be modified to gain financing. In the French episode a group of high school students kill one of their colleagues for his money. In the Italian episode a university student is involved in smuggling cigarettes. In the English episode a lazy poet finds the body of a woman on the downs, and tries to sell his story to the press

La dama sin camelias La signora senza camelie by Michelangelo Antonioni( Visual )

15 editions published between 1952 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third feature film by cinema master Michelangelo Antonioni, La signora senza camelie [The Lady Without Camelias], expanded the expressive palette of contemporary Italian movies, demonstrating that a personal vision could take an explicitly poetic tack; that s̮eriousness = neo-realismŁ was perhaps already turning into something of a truism; and that Antonioni would answer to no-one but himself.It's the story of a shopclerk named Clara (played by the captivating Lucia Bosè, also of Antonioni's brilliant debut feature, Cronaca di un amore) who finds a chance casting in a small movie role develop into a full-blown career as screen-siren. Tension erupts when her husband can no longer tolerate watching her frivolous cinema escapades, and pushes her into a "serious, artistic" production of the life of Joan of Arc whereupon she is castigated by the critical establishment.A riveting "behind-the-scenes" show-business drama, La signora senza camelie explores themes that would haunt its director from L'avventura through La notte and The Passenger an individual's tenuous hold on her identity, and the dangers inherent to performance in life and on-screen. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Antonioni's masterful, highly personal La signora senza camelie for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format release containing both Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film.
