Original Rizzoli Film Italian Locandina (11x27). Folded. Fine Plus Condition.

Original Rizzoli Film Italian Locandina (11x27) for the Michelangelo Antonioni drama, IL DESERTO ROSSO [RED DESERT] (1965), starring Monica Vitti, Richard Harris, and Carlo Chionetti. Vitti plays a mother and housewife who is married to a plant manger (Chionetti) in Ravenna. She is also becoming more and more alienated from everything in her world. This was Antonioni's first film in color, and he uses the color to further enhance a pervasive feeling of isolation. He had the landscapes painted so that everything looked unreal. And this cold and industrial landscape begins to suffocate the audience as much as it suffocates Vitti. Is she suffering from true mental illness or an inability to adapt to this wasteland? This is certainly one of the most memorable films about alienation in the modern age. This original Italian poster is folded and in fine plus condition with evidence of a snipe (sticker) which has been removed.
