Synopsis

L'Eclisse was the final film in Antonioni's informal trilogy of the modern malaise (following L'Avventura and La Notte), a series of films that redefined the concept of narrative cinema. Filmed in sumptuous black and white and full of scenes of lush, strange beauty, it tells the story of Vittoria (the beautiful Monica Vitti - Red Desert), a young woman who leaves her older lover (Francisco Rabal - Viridiana), then drifts into a relationship  with a confident, ambitious young stockbroker (Alain Delon - Le Cercle Rouge).  Using the architecture of Rome as a backdrop for this doomed affair, Antonioni achieves the apotheosis of his style in this return to the theme that preoccupied him the most: the difficulty of forming true connections amidst the meaninglessness of the modern world.
