'La Notte' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Jul 17, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

Michelangelo Antonioni's 1961 psychological thriller heads to Blu-ray at the end of October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion is preparing 'La Notte' for Blu-ray on October 29.

Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau 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.

The Blu-ray will feature a 4K 1080p video transfer, an uncompressed mono soundtrack, and supplements include: 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; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic Richard Brody and a 1961 article by director Michelangelo Antonioni.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
