The Lady Without Camelias
La signora senza camelie
A shopgirl-turned- movie star’s idolising but possessive producer husband has plans for her career...
Dir Michelangelo Antonioni
With Lucia Bosé, Andrea Checchi, Gino Cervi, Alain Cuny
Even by his second feature Antonioni’s interest in fragile relationships between restless, intelligent women and insecure or feckless men is evident. Bosé, drawing on her own history, excels as a shopgirl-turned-movie star whose idolising but possessive producer husband has plans for her career... The compositions and camera movements evoke the protagonist’s entrapment, even as Antonioni gently guys Italy’s mainstream movie business.
