  3. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Le amiche

    Pre-L’avventura Antonioni remains enthralling even before he reached his true artistic maturation.

  4. dionysus67's rating of the film Le amiche

    Masterful and extremely elegant in its shots early Antonioni. The haute-bourgeoisie attempts to bridge the gap with its the lower middle class but meets its own demons of female emancipation. The modern woman's vacillation between traditional role-expectations and autonomy is conveyed with understated detail and could not find a better vehicle than the ethereal Rossi Drago. A master of the cinema of the gaze! Superb!

  5. Bernardo Anderson's rating of the film Le amiche

    I feel like there's a lot going on with this movie that goes unsaid, much like most Antonioni films. But in the end, this is a movie about friendships, love, moving on, and not moving on.

  6. kinotopia's rating of the film Le amiche

    well conveyed contempt for the bourgeoisie and their petty dramas and insolence.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Le amiche

    Un sombre et violent tableau contre la nature féminine, mais où l'homme n'en ressort ni grandi, ni meilleur. Une oeuvre solide et prenante ! www.cinefiches.com

  8. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Le amiche

    You say neo-realism, I say melodrama, and I say "To hell with it!". Seriously.

  9. francisca bacon's rating of the film Le amiche

    Astonished to discover a chatty Antonioni only to find it cohesive with his other works along almost Cioranesque views that furibund productive inebriety hides the obsessive fear to face oneself. Producing words, art, business plans, compulsive flirt to hush resonant emptiness beneath. But every thorough analysis is a profanation and lifelessness' doorstep, (self-)knowledge comes at a bitter price, accepted illusions

  11. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Le amiche

  12. Jason's rating of the film Le amiche

    I think far too much is made of Antonioni's supposed break w/ neorealism. Le amiche, particularly, seem like a movie very much engaged in a dialogue w/ Rossellini and early Visconti. Movies primarily focusing on the upper classes cannot rightfully be considered films about class? Absurd. What distinguishes Antonioni, even early on: the idea of choreography married to mise-en-scène, and eerily effective dispassion.

  14. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Le amiche

    “You’re going to see a miracle tonight.” “What kind of miracle?” “We’re going to have a good time.” Sweeter, more wistful, and much more plotful than Antonioni's later, better-known ice-capades, Le Amiche and its hearts in hibernation are no less desperate, equivocal or doomed.

  15. Aardsy's rating of the film Le amiche

    That's all you women think of.

  16. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Le amiche

    Praying mantises waiting for the right men to come by. In the meantime, they've got some psychological problems to solve. Highly recommended.

  17. Landen Celano's rating of the film Le amiche

    "I admire you anyhow, even though we don't like the same furniture." "Thank you."

  18. José Neves's rating of the film Le amiche

    Cinematography by Gianni Di Venanzo. It begins to seem a typical Italian comedy of the genre "Telefoni Bianchi", but as long as the dramatic density goes deeper and the various paths of the protagonists are detaching one from another, Antonioni builds a formalist découpage that registers perfectly their "mal de vivre "and "noia ". The next film would be obviously a "grido".

  19. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Le amiche

    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

  20. raggiodisole's rating of the film Le amiche

    Such mastery of the language of film.

  21. janh24's rating of the film Le amiche

    An audacious, beautiful picture; Antonioni's early masterpiece patently deserves wider renown!

  22. Aur Ora B's rating of the film Le amiche

    It's wonderful. All of these bourgeois, metropolitan, existential faultlines are already visible

  23. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Le amiche

    Fantastic. Strong women making interesting choices within society and cosmopolitan city life. The energy in this film is full of tension and passionate emotion while still showing a "day in the life of" a relatively mundane existence.

  24. Cojocariu Claudia's rating of the film Le amiche

    Great ”game of tennis” between the ladies but I prefer the ”iconic” female of the 60s and the ”Antonionennui” (quote by Andrew Sarris).
