L'Eclisse (The Eclipse): The Criterion Collection

The conclusion of Michelangelo Antonioni's informal trilogy on modern malaise, L'Eclisse (The Eclipse) tells the story of a young woman (Monica Vitti) who leaves one lover (Francisco Rabal) only to drift into a relationship with another (Alain Delon). Using the architecture of Rome as a backdrop for the couple's doomed affair, Antonioni reaches the apotheosis of his modernist style. returning to his favorite themes: alienation and the difficulty of finding connections in an increasingly mechanized world.
