Blow-up by M.Antonioni

Saturday, December 25, 2010

LONDON - In these days I'm meeting models (they go mad for Milan), so today Christmas day dedicated to an old-fashioned movie (year 1966 England world champion), I watched again the film Blow-up :) by Michelangelo Antonioni, the Italian director who inspired Oasis with his film Zabriskie Point (see this old post), produced by near-Milan-born Carlo Ponti (Sophia Loren husband).
The actors are interesting people: David Hemmings (also on Dario Argento's "Profondo Rosso", Deep Red, the scariest film I ever seen), the English (and not french :) Jane Birkin (first frontal nude at cinema), Vanessa Redgrave, and my favourite musician, the immense Jimmy Page (and Noel agrees :)
My favourite director is Alfred Hitchcock, and there's a bit of him in Blow-up, some mystery, and also a bit of Swinging London which reminded me of Carnaby Street and Pretty Green.
The final scene in a field is meaningful, as the Beatles said: Strawberry fields, nothing is real.
Blow-up also inspired Brian De Palma film Blow Out with John "Tony Manero" Travolta :)


"I thought you were supposed to be in Paris"... Veruschka, model on drugs: "I am in Paris" ahahaha
