L’ECLISSE (Italy, 1962, 126mins, Subtitled, Cert PG) Concluding Michelangelo Antonioni’s informal trilogy on the modern malaise, which began with L’Avventura, L’Eclisse tells the story of a young woman who leaves one lover only to drift into a relationship with another. Using the classic architecture of Rome as backdrop to the couple’s doomed affair, Antonioni reaches the apotheosis of his modernist style, returning to his favourite themes – alienation and the difficulty of finding connections in an increasingly estranged world.
