Did You Know?
[on François Truffaut
] I think his films are like a river, lovely to see, to bathe in, extraordinarily refreshing and pleasant. Then the water flows and is gone. Very little of the pleasant feeling remains because I soon feel dirty again and need another bath. His images are as powerful as those of Resnais or Godard, but his stories are frivolous. I suppose that's what I object to. René Clair
After his death, Antonioni's body lay in state at the City Hall in Rome. His funeral was held in the cathedral of San Giorgio in his home town of Ferrara. He is buried next to his parents in the Certosa cemetary in Ferrara.
Frequently his films are centered around an attractive, damaged (and often adulterous) man and woman who go on a talky journey together which ends ambiguously yet grimly.
