Product Description

Director Michelangelo Antonioni's unique triptych film features three murders, one taking place in Paris, another in Rome, and another in London. All of the perpetrators are affluent youths, each killing for his own dubious motive. In the France segment, a group of adolescents kill for money, even though they don't need it. In the London segment, a poet uncovers a woman's body and tries to profit from the discovery. And in the Italian segment, a student becomes caught up in a smuggling ring, with deadly results. Though each crime is investigated, the guilty are rarely singled out for their actions.


Antonionis third feature is heavy handed, melodramatic, yet riddled with inklings of the genius to come. And if thats not enough, the disc includes the rousing 1953 Antonioni bonus short: Attempted Suicide. --Film Comment

With the opening monologue of his second feature, the three-part I Vinti ( The Vanquished ),from 1953 (a new DVD release from Raro Video), Michelangelo Antonioni polemically affirms the theme that would dominate his entire career: the erosion of reason and morality throughout society, due to the onslaught of mass media and the dominion of the bourgeoisie who both produce it and fall under its way. --The New Yorker

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I VINTI might be the least imposing of the feature films made by the great Michelangelo Antonioni; actually, it's a compendium of three separate short films, each one set in different countries. All of the episodes involve what used to be called "juvenile delinquents", young people who are aimless and become involved in crime. There's an episode set in Italy, which seems rather desultory; there's an episode set in France, which leaves a nasty aftertaste; there's an episode set in England, which is simply bizarre. Yet it's instructive to see Antonioni, at a very early stage of his career, trying to work in different countries (which he would do, much more successfully, later in his career). The big plus of this edition is that the episodes are all presented in their original languages: this was a French-Italian-English co-production, and each of the episodes was done in the "native" language (though the screenplay was co-written by Antonioni, and sometimes, in French and English, the dialogue sounds mistranslated, with odd attempts at slang). There's also a cramped feeling to the film, as if Antonioni were afraid to venture out, but there are also occasional visual moments of lovely felicity. All in all: a fine DVD package of a curiosity by one of the masters of Italian cinema.
