The Strange Familiars

5 months ago at Jul 4 12:11
I just started watching La Notte (by the same director), and I was thinking about what I’d say about it, when I realized I hadn’t reviewed L’Avventura. I guess the most important thing is how midcentury and therefore familiar—and therefore how strange—it is, despite the fact that they’re speaking Italian (and I guess it’s black and white, and it’s blah blah blah, whatever else).

A group of rich Italians head out on a yachting trip to a deserted volcanic island in the Mediterranean. When they are about to leave the island, they find Anna, the main character up to this point, has gone missing. Sandro, Anna's boyfriend, and Claudia, Anna's friend, try without success to find her. While looking for the missing friend, Claudia and Sandro develop an attraction for each other. When they get back to land, they continue the search with no success. Sandro and Claudia proceed to become lovers, and all but forget about the missing Anna.

The Strange Familiars

“I just started watching La Notte (by the same director), and I was thinking about what I’d say about it, when I realized I hadn’t reviewed L’Avventura. I guess the most important thing is how midcentury and therefore familiar—and therefore how strange—it is, despite the fact that they’re speaking Italian (and I guess it’s black and white, and it’s blah blah blah, whatever else). It’s obviously in my system an observational comedy, not unlike “Nights & Weekends” (2008); a very quiet sort of film.… 

Both L’Avventura and La Notte deal obliquely with the secondary place of the women in society, and subtle things like that—L’Avventura also deals with the feeling that midcentury moderns aren’t really living up to their Renaissance ancestors, for exa” read more

"18.7. Tallenne Miellyttävää huomata, että kaiken maailman eksploitaation ja rehdin roskankin kyllästämänä, iskee vanha kunnon eksistentialismijumittelu yhä, kuin herkimmässä iässä. Kynnys katsomiselle vain on varmaan yhtä korkea, kuin tuolloin olisi ollut em. matalakulttuurin visvalle, mutta näinhän Seikkailun kaltaisen elokuvan hienous ihan korostuu. Ja ennakko-odotukset pysyvät maltillisina. Kuvasta kuvaan niin käsittämättömän upean näköistä elokuvaa, että sitä kat"

" Date: 8/17/2020 Viewed: Criterion Channel Re-Watch Note: I watched this movie for the first time over a year ago in my film class and I didn't bother finishing the rest of it. I almost fell asleep when watching it in class and I went home during the first half of the movie. I was probably not in the right headspace at the time when I was watching the movie. Thanks to Film Club, I can finally give this movie a second chance and hope that I will like it better on a second viewing. To be honest"

"Uusintakatseluillakin Antonionit ovat tylsää haahuilua. Silti tai ehkä juuri siksi, katselen kuin lumottuna. Viimeinen kuva, ihmiset maisemassa, aina tuulee, käsi painettuna toisen päälaelle, jää kummittelemaan mieleen pitkäksi pitkäksi aikaa. Varmaan pitää repäistä ja antaa jollekin toisellekin Antonionille mahdollisuus."
