"Love and the City" by Michelangelo Antonioni

Let's meet in the SFFSC cafe' at 3pm for coffee and a chat before the film (starts at 4:15pm). We can always go out as a group after, as well, if we decide.

Love in the City Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, Federico Fellini, Alberto Lattuada, Carlo Lizzani, Francesco Maselli, Dino Risi, Cesare Zavattini Six of Italy’s most talented filmmakers—including Fellini and Antonioni—collaborate on this diverse ‘50s time capsule focusing on lives, mostly female, disappointed by love. Aiming for a “newly conscious kind of cinema” (as described in voiceover), the collection presents a journalistic view of city life using the actual people who experienced the events portrayed. From couples in a dance hall to prostitutes plying their trade, the film’s varied segments offer a wide-ranging examination of how mid-century mores often led to suffering, particularly for women. On the more upbeat side are Fellini’s tale of a woman longing for marriage and Alberto Lattuada’s nearly wordless portrait of men checking out women on the streets of Rome. L'amore in città, Italy 1953, 105 min. Written by Michelangelo Antonioni, Aldo Buzzi, Luigi Chiarini, Federico Fellini, Marco Ferreri, Alberto Lattuada, Luigi Malerba, Tullio Pinelli, Dino Risi, Vittorio Veltroni, Cesare Zavattini. Photographed by Gianni Di Venanzo With Ugo Tognazzi, Marco Ferreri. Raro Video. In Italian with subtitles.

Tickets $9 for SFFS members, $11 general, $10 senior/student/disabled. Box office opens July 9 online at sffs.org and in person at SF Film Society Cinema.

    The movie was a bit depressing but creatively made.
