La notte by Michelangelo Antonioni ( Visual )
16 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in Italian and German and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Twenty-four hours in the breakdown of a middle-class marriage is the apparent subject of the second of Antonioni's early sixties tetralogy which, in the degree of substitution of contingency for causality in the narrative, was a watershed both for the cinema and Antonioni. All Antonioni's films share what Rohdie calls 'the elusive lost subject' - an impossible search for the unattainable in the pursuit of bodies, identities, feelings. In L'Avventura there is an actual disappearance to provide a focus for the narrative, at least initially. In La Notte the failing relationship between the couple is itself the site of the search, more indeterminate than in the earlier film, being prompted as it is by little more than Lidia's unease, her sense of loss

His travels take him to the home of an old flame, to a filling station owned by a lonely widow on a desolate stretch of highway, and into the arms of a prostitute in an impoverished fishing community. But he can find no relief from his undying love for Irma and must return to her village
Il momento della verità The moment of truth ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"[A] visceral plunge into the life of a famous torero played by real-life bullfighting legend Miguel Mateo, known as Miguelin. Charting his rise and fall with a single-minded focus on the bloody business at hand, the film is at once gritty and operatic, placing the viewer right in the thick of the ring's action, as close to death as possible. ... [T]his is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving inquiry into a violent world and it's perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made."--Container

Tyvian Jones, uno scrittore inglese - trascurando la fidanzata Francesca, peraltro oggetto delle premure del produttore cinematografico Branco - lascia la città di Venezia, dove risiede abitualmente, per inseguire a Roma una donna enigmatica, Eva. La donna accetta di trascorrere un week-end con Tyvian appunto nella città lagunare, concluso dalla richiesta di un compenso da parte di Eva. Deluso, dopo qualche tempo, lo scrittore sposa Francesca. Sempre a Venezia, durante un'assenza della moglie, ritrova Eva accompagnata da un'occasionale amico. Tyvian e la donna trascorrono la notte insieme. L'indomani Francesca li sorprende; sconvolta, fugge e la sua imbarcazione si infrange contro una chiatta. Lo scrittore medita di uccidere Eva, ma non ne è capace, perché è troppo legato alla sciagurata. Si trascina da un bar all'altro in attesa delle brevi visite della donna, sempre in compagnia di un uomo diverso
Liebe 1962 ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1961 and 2011 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die junge Vittoria verläßt ihren Freund und geht auf die Suche nach neuen Bindungen. Die kurze Affäre mit einem Börsenmanager endet jedoch mit der bitteren Erfahrung von Einsamkeit, Entfrem- dung und Sinnleere - gipfelnd in der Methapher einer Sonnen- finsternis, die das Schwinden zwischenmenschlicher und meta- physischer Bezugspunkte versinnbildlicht. Mit einem Minimum an Worten und Aktionen, allein durch die vir- tuose optische Gestaltung und präzise Inszenierung von Räumen, Schauplätzen und Figurentableaus beschreibt Antonioni die gefühls- und menschenfeindlichen Aspekte moderner Lebenszusammenhänge

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Julia, eine vereinsamte Ehefrau, lebt im Dialog mit den imaginären Gestalten ihrer Kindheit und Fantasie. Ihre seelische Krise führt zur Selbsterfahrung, zur Aufarbeitung verborgener Ängste und schließlich zu einem neuen Selbstbewußtsein, mit dessen Hilfe sie sich künftig gegen reale oder irreale Bevormundungen behaupten kann. Federico Fellinis fantasievolle Charakter- und Situationsbeschreibung des Menschen, der Gesellschaft, des Mannes und der Frau. Eine sich durch großartige symbolische Farbkompositionen und die schauspielerisch außergewöhnliche Differenzierung auszeichnende, freilich nicht leicht zu entschlüsselnde Studie über die heilsame Wirkung der Einbildungskraft.
