NWFC: Le Amiche
DIRECTOR: MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI
In LE AMICHE (Italian for girlfriends), a young woman returns to her hometown of Turin after World War II to set up a fashion salon. The film’s costumes were designed by Zoe, Micol, and Giovanna Fontana, sisters who opened their Rome atelier in 1943 and whose signature costuming in mid-century films gave Rome the nickname “Hollywood on the Tiber.” Here, the costumes create an impeccably elegant world, from work to the beach. Meanwhile, Antonioni’s cinematic style builds an atmosphere of longing and sympathy as the women balance new roles of life and work. Starring Eleonora Rossi Drago, Gabriele Ferzetti, and Franco Fabrizi. (104 mins.)
