Francisco R.'s rating of the film La notte

So far my favorite Antonioni, the cinematography, compositions and use of locations are perfect. The use of poetry in the script is remarkably inspired as well as the dialogue being nothing but nuanced, the film takes its sweet time to give you these little hints aiming at how complex the real emotions of these characters are, everybody is grieving here, and the ones who don't haven't realized yet.
