The film remains a fascinating, occasionally prophetic snapshot of a young filmmaker figuring out his political and aesthetic ideologies.
In spite of some promising and fun nourish tropes, I Vinti is for Antonioni completists only.
The picture signaled a welcome return to the settings and themes of Rossellini’s neorealist origins after years of baffling experiments.
Overrated when first released and underrated since, Rossellini’s trenchant tale of redemption is ripe for rediscovery.
A throwaway package for a pair of interesting Rossellini curios.
