Here's another absorbing Antonioni film experience and a fascinating forerunner to what was to come from him in the next decade; a psychological melodrama regarding a woman's return to her native Turin and her encounters with a group of bored and aimless friends who feed on love and gossip. This is a moody picture; an ensemble piece with multiple intertwining story threads orchestrated perfectly by a great director..
Como Bergman, Antonioni realiza un filme sobre mujeres que cargan conflictos amorosos, solo que a diferencia del sueco, aquí las féminas no viven atormentadas por su pasado. Sus amores pertenecen a un presente y de su pasado poco se sabe. Aquí las mujeres no son presa de la inestabilidad. Cada una sabe lo que desea y cínicamente van cargando las consecuencias, sea la mediocridad, la alienación, el agoísmo o la muerte
For me, this is lesser Antonioni but is nonetheless still interesting. The beach scene here seems to foreshadow the island in L'Avventura and the inability of people to form perfect, loving relationships reflects what would become a recurring theme in Antonioni's masterworks.
I find that almost all such movies are not availble to watch so I request you to send us list of movies which can be watched free of charges,which will be very useful to seniors who canot go out and watch in theaters or places of screenings which are normally in festivals in foreign countries
Le Amiche has become my favorite Antonioni. Each character moves with easy fluidity while simultaneously contrasting their counterpart. I loved the relationship between Clelia and the assistant. How the differences of two people that are just not ever meant to be together is studied is pure and realistic, and yet, not without great artistic expression. The beach scene is beauty. Lean and elegant. Highly recommended.
