Alain Delon and Monica Vitti during a break from the set of "L'eclisse". Rome, 1961Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, "L'eclisse" is the last chapter of the trilogy on the lack of communication in industrialized society, an experimental film that boldly departs from the large-scale distribution cinema of the period. Rome, July 1961. Vittoria (Monica Vitti), after leaving her partner, wants to recover her relationship with her mother, whom she meets at the Rome Stock Exchange. On one of these visits Vittoria meets Piero, a stockbroker (Alain Delon) with whom she will begin a relationship without real involvement. Their meetings follow a routine of places and times that will be broken one morning when neither of them shows up for the appointment, despite having sworn eternal love to each other. The film narrates the eclipse of feelings and happiness in the world of consumerism, the natural conclusion of Antonioni's trilogy on the criticism of capitalism. An era that forces men to live alienated, with the exception of Vittoria, the only character who deludes herself into finding a true feeling, always remaining a victim of disappointments. A film that confirms Antonioni as a "monumental" director, capable of making the spectators identify with the characters and the surrounding environment, and of which today we remember the release in 1962 with a shot of Marcello Geppetti on the set of the film, in which he captures Alain Delon drinking cappuccino next to Monica Vitti. The photo is sold with certificate of authenticity of Marcello Geppetti Media Company. The image is a detail created in an exclusive for Supermartek.
