La Notte ([la ˈnɔtte]; English: "The Night") is a 1961 Italian drama film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and starring Marcello Mastroianni, Jeanne Moreau and Monica Vitti (with Umberto Eco appearing in a cameo). Filmed on location in Milan, the film is the relationship between a disillusioned novelist and his frustrated wife as it follows a single day and night where they confront their alienation from each other and the empty Milan circles they travel. The film continues Antonioni's tradition of abandoning traditional storytelling in favor of visual composition.Grossing 470 million lire and receiving acclaim for its exploration of modernist themes of isolation, La Notte received the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival (first time for Italian film), as well as the David di Donatello Award for Best Director in 1961. La Notte is considered the central film of a trilogy beginning with L'Avventura (1960) and ending with L'Eclisse (1962). It is one of Stanley Kubrick's 10 favorite films and received 4 votes from critics and 6 votes from directors in the Sight & Sound greatest films poll.
