Über diesen Titel
In this evocative book, Michelangelo Antonioni, one of the world's greatest directors, gives us a rare glimpse inside the creative mind. "My thoughts are always about film," he says, and here he has written thirty-three richly suggestive pieces elaborating ideas for films as yet unproduced.
Beautifully translated by William Arrowsmith, That Bowling Alley on the Tiber reveals a master of cinema in a new role--that of an accomplished and sensitive writer.
"Plangent, haunting and refreshingly tough-minded...[Antonioni] is asking the questions that wiry serious film maker will have to ask if the cinema is ever to prove as hospitable to ideas as it is to the great god Action."--The New York Times Book Review
"These writings, like his films, pair luminous landscapes with ethereal tales....These are clearly working notes, and they are as interesting for their analysis of the director's methods as for their literary content."--Library Journal
About the Author and Translator:
Michelangelo Antonioni has gained an international following with such films as L'Avventura, La notte, Blow-up and The Passenger.
William Arrowsmith is Robert W. Woodruff Professor of Classics and Comparative Literature at Emory University.
