LA NOTTE – BD & DVD Editions
This psychologically acute, visually striking modernist work was director Michelangelo Antonioni’s follow-up to the epochal L’avventura. Marcello Mastroianni (Divorce Italian Style) and Jeanne Moreau (Jules and Jim) star as a novelist and his frustrated wife who, over the course of one night, confront their alienation from each other and the achingly empty bourgeois Milan circles in which they travel. Antonioni’s muse Monica Vitti (Red Desert) smolders as an industrialist’s tempting daughter. Moodily sensual cinematography and subtly expressive performances make La notte an indelible illustration of romantic and social deterioration.

SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES 
• New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
• New interview with film critic Adriano Aprà and film historian Carlo Di Carlo
• New interview with professor Giuliana Bruno on the role of architecture in La notte
• Trailer

• PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Richard Brody and a 1961 article by director Michelangelo Antonioni

This is MAGNIFICENT news. I've been waiting forever for Criterion to complete the ennui trilogy, and thought maybe the rights for this were held up in legal limbo or something. So, so excited for this.

The release took so long because they didn't have good enough elements to work with until now.

I hope Criterion will now upgrade L'avventura and L'eclisse to BD.

A new restoration of L'avventura is currently making the rounds in repertory theaters, so I imagine it'll hit Criterion blu sometime early next year. Maybe they'll upgrade L'eclisse at the same time.
