Abstract

This paper aims to emphasize the crucial role played by Il grido in the development of Antonioni’s film style. The first part is focused on Aldo’s absurd journey throughout the Po Valley, strictly tied to a deconstruction of the landscape. This narrative and stylistic choice prevents characters – and viewers as well – from orienting themselves within such a landscape and journey. This lack of vision and gaze, both related to characters and viewers, is systematically analyzed in the second part of the paper, referring to some sequences from the movie.
