Take a step forward

To some extent, it is widely believed that Blow-Up (1967) is a special film for
Michelangelo Antonioni, since it’s his first international film and it’s
also his most commercially successful one. Besides, it’s his rare film
that doesn’t focus on the experience of women, but on that of a male
photographer named Thomas.

The film’s plot is about 24 hours in the life of a highly successful
fashion photographer in London called Thomas. After spending a night in
a flophouse where he has taken some photos for a book of art, he drives
back and begins his work with the shoot with Veruschka. After this, he
drives off to an antique shop. Wandering in the Maryon park, he
accidentally meets two lovers and takes photos of them hanging around.
However, the Girl is mad at Thomas’s behavior, demanding Thomas to hand
over the negatives. When Thomas gets back to his studio and develops
those films, he discovers something horrible and considers that there is
a great chance that he has met with a murder. However, the fact gets
more and more mysterious when Thomas tries to put all the evidence
together.

Summarizing this film is never an easy task and interpreting it is even
harder. Honestly speaking, the thematic preoccupations of the film are
different from Antonioni’s previous films, even if it includes the old
themes, such as the inability to communicate with others and the
fragility of their feelings. However, this film strikes me with a
radically new perspective towards the relationship between reality and
illusion. Furthermore, as Antonioni has put, “I mistrust everything I
see, which an image shows me, because I imagine what is beyond it. And
what is beyond image cannot be known.” (Antonioni, from the
“Introduction” to Technically
Sweet)

As a consequence, the goal of this essay is to explore the new theme in
Blow-Up. This essay will
explore the insights of this film and how Antonioni expresses this theme
by characters and plots.

Fisher suggests taking a small step of the rest of the group so you are
positioned slightly in front. ’That position can give the effect of
being taller,’ he explained.

Taken into consideration, the theme of Blow-Up (1967) is slightly different
to some extent. In his previous films, mental isolation, distraction and
the desire to flee away are the main themes.

If looking a little on the short-side is a concern then ask the
photographer to shoot from a lower angle so the lens is pointing
upwards.

First of all, the characters are mentally isolated from each other and
unable to express what they feel. In L’eclisse (1962), the heroine
Vittoria is likely to lose the ability to communicate with his
ex-boyfriend Ricardo and his boyfriend Piero. When it comes to the stock
market, Vittori describes it as an area of combat and cannot figure out
the reason why so many people are crazy about it. After the question,
Vittori kissed Piero with a window separated. Then Piero wants to get
closer to her, and Vittori refuses. In a conversation, Piero expresses
that he feels as if he was in a foreign country. Vittori thinks that she
has the same feeling when she is with him. And then they are radically
divided on the issue whether they should marry or not. Vittori is always
suspicious of love and her relationship with Piero and is spiritually
empty. Furthermore, everything seems to fail to satisfy her. She says,”
Why do we ask so many questions? Two people shouldn’t know each other
too well if they want to fall in love. But maybe they shouldn’t fall in
love at all.” From their relationship and Vittori’s problem, there are
misunderstandings between them. In the last five minutes, Antonioni
gives up presenting the characters’ actions, but concentrates on the
environmental objects, which are cold and ruthless. Finally, it is
evident that this is a world that people cannot negotiate and their
demands are never equal to others.

Blow-Up (1967) also conveys
this theme deeply, people even cannot communicate with each other
superficially, and there are so many barriers that they seem to forget
what has been said instantly. In this film, the communication lacks the
interaction and becomes useless. Particia, wife of Thomas’s neighbor
Bill, comes into his studio as he found that his studio has been
pillaged. While Thomas wants to talk about the murder, Particia seems
not to hear what he said and carry on talking about the things worry
her. The basic rule of communication no longer exists, since they cannot
stick to either topic and they are so absorbed that they cannot respond
to each other appropriately. When Particia comes in, she asks Thomas
whether he is looking for something. Thomas skips this question, saying
“Do you ever think of leaving him?” She replies she doesn’t think so,
and Thomas says he has found a man killed in the morning. Particia puts
up several questions to dig out the details of the murder. Thomas’s
requests are ambiguous, saying “I don’t know, I didn’t see.” However,
Particia ignores his own confusion, responding a rhetorical question
with full suspect:” What do you mean? You didn’t see?”, and then she
asks,” Shouldn’t you call the police?” Thomas points at the negative,
saying” That’s the body.” Particia’s replies:” It looks like one of the
Bill’s painting.”, which is a disappointment to him. After seconds of
silence, Particia returns to her own trouble, asking him whether he
could help her. “What is it?” Thomas asks. However, she wanders off the
topic again and looks at the picture saying “I wonder why they shot
him.”

Stand front and centre

Then distraction is also familiarly Antonionian. In Blow-Up (1967), when Thomas turns to
Ron to look for some support, he goes into a club full of noise, and
finds Ron is obsessed with cigarettes and several girls. After he
manages to drag his focus, Thomas reports the murder. However, Ron is
distracted by the girl, wine and cigarettes with Thomas’s sentences
unfinished. Later, when Ron is reluctant to ask him what happened,
Thomas just replies,” Nothing.” This scene represents the inability of
his mod individual and the whole situation. He cannot escape getting
stoned too, since he fails to photograph the corpse on his own ground.

Stand front and centre

The desire to flee away from the present situation is also familiar to
Antonioni. In La Notte (1961),
the heroine Lidia cannot find it boring to accompany his husband
Giovanni to visit patient and show up in some events, she chooses to get
away from it and wander around the blocks without any specific targets.
And in Blow-Up (1967), from the
model, the owner of the antique shop and the mimes to Thomas, they all
look forward to getting rid of the present situation. Some of them want
to go somewhere unfamiliar to them, for example, the owner of the
antique shop has little interest in the shop, longing to get to Nepal.
Others choose the more extreme way of treating the world with a playful
attitude, such as the mimes.

Another tip for standing out in a group shot is to take the centre
position.

Compared with his previous films, the old themes are carried on and
further developed. In Blow-Up
(1967), the communications have been useless, every character is
preoccupied with their own trouble. And the distraction not only comes
from the environment, but also from the bottom of their heart. The
desire of flee away has been exaggerated, thus treating the world as is
it were a joke. However, what Blow-Up express is more than these.

Characters: Thomas and the mimes, two
sides of a coin

Another tip for standing out in a group shot is to take the centre
position.

It might seem domineering to insist on being in the middle, but it is
the easiest way to ensure you’ll like how you look in the photo.

In the film, the protagonist is Thomas and the antagonists are the
mimes. Their relationship is a paradox, which is like two sides of a
coin. To put it another way, they both share some similarities and some
differences.
