movie: l'eclisse


L’Eclisse (1962) Michelangelo Antonioni

Carol (2015) Todd Haynes

Todd Haynes said that Cate Blanchett reminded him of Monica Vitti (in the role of Vittoria) in L'Eclisse (1962). Haynes made the connection to Vitti in the scene where Therese develops her photograph of Carol asleep, with a lock of hair on her cheek. The style and position of Carol’s hair is similar to that of a sleeping Vittoria in a scene from the Italian film.
