- Yes, signorina?

- I would like to go inside.

- It's nearly finished.

- Let her in.

- Go on in.

- Thank you.


They're still not lost

and you will feel them

I still think I can have you

but I have deluded myself

But if one day you'll return

I wont come back to you

Your lies...

I could kick myself.

It's useless,

I have to do everything myself.

Imagine if we had put Clara

in the first half too.

Sit down!

But for the one we're making now,

don't screw me!

The protagonist has to be Clara.

I know how to fix the script.

Melli told me your ideas.

He doesn't think they'll work.

He's right, we're too far

into the film now.

Listen to the script writer,

Itll be great!


What do you want me to say?

I love films full of passion.

- Of course.

- Who's the brunette?

It's Clara Manni.

- She's great, really great.

- Which one?

- Not great, but that girl...

- The main scene...

Was she from a beauty pageant?

No, I discovered her in Milan.

She was a shop assistant.

You guys are out of it. In America

they know how to launch a girl like that!

Listen to him - "in America", thanks!

We're doing another film with her -

The Man without Destiny.

Which from tomorrow will be

The Woman without Destiny.

Where do you find them?

There are no beautiful women around...

- Is la Manni not here?

- No, she's not well.

Ha, it rained! You need to tell Maria

to get her wool dress out.

Ask Melli where that other intellectual is,

they've got a big night tonight.

For tomorrow they have to

rewrite the first scenes.

- I can't stop work to let them sleep!

- Yes... Melli!

Think it went well?

It couldn't have gone worse!

Go get Sivieri

and we'll go to my house.

I'll get the car and catch up with you.

I'm sleepy! Where can I find

Sivieri at this hour?

- You'll find him.

- Here he is! Sivieri!

Let's not joke around,

because I'm not writing a line!

- We'll have a nice coffee.

- The money has to turn up too.

- It will! Goodnight.

- Goodnight.

- Albonetti!

- I'm coming! Goodbye.

I was going to call you.

What are you doing here?

Were you at the screening?

I came at the end to hear what

people were saying about me.

What did you think they'd say?

That you're ugly and shouldn't work?

Come here. Don't be silly.

Everybody is over there.

You'll be treated like a star,

you're the protagonist after all.

Shall we have a drink alone?

Sorry, not tonight, sir.

- You still don't call me tu?

- I tried, I can't!

The whole of Rome thinks we're lovers.


- Would it be that strange?

- Don't you think?

Well... I think I deserve a kiss tonight.

In all modesty,

you've had a great success.

Thanks to you and signor Ercolino,

I should kiss him too then.

If that's the way you see it,

let's drop it.

- It went well, they liked it?

- Yes, they even applauded.

Will you do me a favor?

Pick me up later than usual tomorrow?

I know I won't be able to sleep.

- So why go home? Stay with me.

- I need to be alone.


No, I doubt it.

Signorina Clara, please come.

Wait for me, we're not shooting much.

We'll have breakfast together.

- Do we have petrol?

- A little.

But I got loads this morning!

- Good day.

- Good day.

- Dr Renzi!

- Yes.


What's happening this morning?

Albonetti hasn't shown up,

and everybody's on edge.

- Apart from you, sir.

- It's all your fault, Clara.

My fault?

They're changing the script.

They say my part is too long

and there's not enough time to do it.

They cut your part and you're this calm?

Why are they making these changes?

You've had a great success

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…
