Antonioni is one of the most influential filmmakers of all times, indeed critics revere him as the ‘creator’ of Modern Cinema. His STORY OF A LOVE AFFAIR, aka Cronaca di un Amore, is his first feature film, a Noir thriller with sensual themes of yearning and jealousy. It is considered a masterpiece by Scorsese, among others.

Paola (Lucia Bosè) is a strikingly beautiful young woman married to a rich older industrialist who decides to have her past investigated. The detective’s enquiry reaches Paola’s former lover, Guido, prompting him to seek her after seven years, and they reignite their passion.

Antonioni, who defined cool modernism on screen, chronicles the love affair, observing without judgement. His ground‐breaking techniques ‐ such as the long one‐take sequence, later adopted by cinema greats ‐ and scintillating B&W photography are presented here in HD for the 1st time, from a painstaking 2K restoration, finally doing justice to the director’s masterpiece.

  • Premiere presentation of the restored film, with Director Antonioni, Star, Lucia Bosè + filmworld VIPs,Tornatore, Dario Argento et..
  • Principal Italian Critic and friend of Fellini, Tullio Kezich interview “When a 1st Work Is already a Masterpiece”

Love of film

Antonioni before maturity (“L’avventura” and after), but already showing all his talent. As with every Antonioni film, a must see for any film lover. Great edition, by the way!
