- Please!

- Yes, I mean as distracting tactics,

- So the others could have time to reach...

- Just a moment!

Are cars good to build barricades?

- Cars?

- Inside the university?

- As tactics to...

- Why don't you bring your own here?

It's a sport car, is it ok? Bring it here,

then I'll take care of it.

Is it possible that you don't

understand that until...

- Silence!

- There's only one way to talk with white men,

and that's in their language.

if they talk with weapons,

you answer with weapons, it's easy

- But are you ready to die?

- Many black men already did,

and many others are now dying in this country;

if we're on the top of the movement,

it's because we pay personally.

- I'm also ready to die.

- Alone?

But not of boredom.

Who the hell is he?

No no, it's alright, he lives with me.

Maybe meetings aren't his forte.

Sorry, but if it wasn't to join us,

why did he come?

Why? Who has the right to say if he

wants to stay here or not?

What kind of bullshit is that?

If he wants to be a revolutionary, he has

to stay with other people, otherwise...

That's why he came here.

There is no revolutionary without other people.

Who was Lenin with no organisation,

or Castro.

Even anarchists spent their

life in meetings, what the hell...

Tell that guy to start reading the

Little Red Book, the first page,

where it says that the revolution cannot

break out anywhere without a revolutionary party.

And that if he continues his middle-class individualism,

he'll lose his life.

To the end against

the middle-class individualism!

There was an open door on the third

floor, now it's ok.

Is it allowed to go on the roof?

I mean, do you let me go up?


I have to take a book,

I forgot it upstairs at lunchtime.

Which book?

Why don't you eat at the cafeteria?

Michelangelo Antonioni

Michelangelo Antonioni, Cavaliere di Gran Croce OMRI (29 September 1912 – 30 July 2007), was an Italian film director, screenwriter, editor, and short story author. Best known for his "trilogy on modernity and its discontents" — L'Avventura (1960), La Notte (1961), and L'Eclisse (1962), as well as the English-language Blowup (1966), Antonioni "redefined the concept of narrative cinema" and challenged traditional approaches to storytelling, realism, drama, and the world at large. He produced "enigmatic and intricate mood pieces" and rejected action in favor of contemplation, focusing on image and design over character and story. His films defined a "cinema of possibilities".Antonioni received numerous awards and nominations throughout his career, including the Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize (1960, 1962), Palme d'Or (1966), and 35th Anniversary Prize (1982); the Venice Film Festival Silver Lion (1955), Golden Lion (1964), FIPRESCI Prize (1964, 1995), and Pietro Bianchi Award (1998); the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists Silver Ribbon eight times; and an honorary Academy Award in 1995. He is one of three directors to have won the Palme d'Or, the Golden Lion and the Golden Bear, and the only director to have won these three and the Golden Leopard. more…
