An ode to actress Monica Vitti at Lumière

The high priestess of frosty sensuality, actress Monica Vitti became an arthouse sensation in the early 1960s with an unofficial tetralogy of films ‘on modernity and its discontents’ by her then partner, director Michelangelo Antonioni. The blonde Italian emanated a sphinx-like presence; a mixture of remoteness and ferocity.

Honouring the legacy of Monica Vitti, who passed away this February at the age of 90, Lumière is proud to bring four modernistic classics back to the big screen, in digitally restored versions.
