A visit to dying friend Bernhard Wicki shakes growing-apart married couple Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau as night falls on Milan and they attend a lavish mansion bash while pondering their future(s). Following up L’Avventura, Antonioni’s auteur reputation continued to rise with this Berlin Film Festival prize winner, but Kael — as ever — did not hold back: “L’Avventura… is a very great film… [but] I dislike La Notte. Perhaps detest is the better word.”

In Italian with English subtitles

A film by Michelangelo Antonioni
