decent repeat of L'Avventura
3 June 2003 | by (Chiba City, Japan) – See all my reviews

Theme-wise, it's a repeat of L'Avventura - a meditative journey on relationship in jeopardy, which is still completely contemporary. By comparison, La Notte lacks landscape variety, unresolved mystery which maintains audience attention, and surprising long takes, all of which enhances the strength of L'Avventura, but still solid enough. Check the intense presence of Vitti while just being on screen.
