A backstage, film-on-film melodrama partly built around Antonioni’s association with various actresses, Cecchi d’Amico’s first collaboration with the director (on his second feature) was also co-written with Francesco Maselli and Pier Maria Pasinetti. Lucia Bosè plays a newly discovered starlet weighed down by the travails of fame and confronted by fawning, aggressive crowds of her own adoring fans. Featuring a dynamic score composed by Antonioni regular Giovanni Fusco (L’eclisse, Hiroshima mon amour), this is the director’s first fully characteristic and truly modern work. With Gino Cervi and Andrea Checchi. 3
