I watched Michelangelo Antonioni’s La Notte this morning, and it reminded me of how much I love to watch Monica Vitti on screen. While the film is centred around characters played by Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau, I found myself anticipating every next scene where Vitti would appear. She has a mysterious face, and a feline way of moving. You can’t help but get drawn in.
