Il Grido - The Masters of Cinema Series Film Poster


Italian maestro Michelangelo Antonioni directs this atmospheric drama about alienation and longing, set against the striking backdrop of the Po Valley in northern Italy where the director grew up. When sugar refinery mechanic Aldo (Steve Cochran) is jilted by his mistress Irma (Alida Valli), he takes to the road. With his young daughter Rosina (Mirna Girardi) in tow, Aldo aimlessly wanders the river delta, seeking temporary respite with a series of women including his former lover Elvia (Betsy Blair). However, all these brief liaisons serve only to remind the needy Aldo of Irma and all that he has lost.
