Le notti bianche Reviews:

A mythic, Venice-like town is an appropriate backdrop for a movie which gotta have greatly offended European critics at the time who had thought of Visconti as one of the pioneers of the fresh realism in Italian Cinema (and indeed with Ossessione and La Terra Trema, he was!). But with this movie Visconti seems to have changed his concept of what he wants in a film: instead of the pursuance of realism at all costs, we have a dream-like fairy tale about fairy tales.Mario (Marcello Mastroianni) meets Natalia (Maria Schnell) one night, and is entranced. But as they start to talk, over a couple of nights, he falls in love with her, and realises that she is already in love with other man. Maria is obsessed with a fairy-tale boy (Jean Cocteau's leading boy Jean Marais), who up and left her a year ago without explanation and told he would return in a year, and if she still loved him, he would be there for her.This movie is evocative and pretty - i'd love to see it in a clean theatrical print - especially the snow scenes at the end.Its a very satisfying cinema experience, and one of Visconti's most pretty films. 8/10.Highlights: the dancing scene! Snow scenes are beautiful, but the dancing stage stands head and shoulders above the rest of the movie. Marcello is shy and introverted - he is sitting in a night club with dreamy Natalia. When couples begin getting up and busting some very cool moves to Bill Haley and the Comets' Thirteen Women, Mario becomes nervous and begins talking to her about himself, talking around the fact that he's a shy person and doesn't like dancing and physical things... he likes dreaming, solitude... But when he sees how interested Natalia is by other boy pulling some mean dance moves, things change. Nice scene.


"The white nights" is a very fragile exquisite tale based on storyline of Dostoievsky. With the photos extremely pretty it says the storyline of an ordinary young boy Mario, who met an unusual, like from other century girl, fell in love with her and almost made her fall in love too and then lost her forever. Here two various worlds collide unambiguously - the modern, cold, indifferent stylized globe and the old, more intimate and hearty one, and this collision makes many ironical and sad situations. Mastroiani plays one of his greatest role and looks like a true melancholic looser, Shell is eccentric, touching and gentle with her tiny hat and ridiculous gorgette ( dresses made by Piero Tosi seems to be the other participants of performance, so great and expressive they are). Marais seems imperturbable like everytime and looks very mysteriously, a type of fatal personage, incarnation of doom. In general movie is very nice, gently and by the end tear-wringing (that's not terrible indeed) and Visconti with his talent of turning usual realistic features into symbolic made this storyline even more pretty then in a book.


Most interesting films come from short stories, as Luchino Visconti clearly demonstrates with his "Le Notti Bianchi". based on a tale by Dostoyevsky. The Russian atmosphere is cleverly transported to an Italian city in winter. The movie is enhanced by Giuseppe Rotunno brilliant camera work in a film that was shot entirely in a studio. In fact, the director salutes Cinecitta in the credits because he gotta have been fully amazed by the look of the end product.The storyline deals with fantasy and reality. One night Mario, a young man, returns to city in a bus. He notices a distressed and pretty girl who appears to be in the process of committing suicide by jumping from a bridge. Natalia, the young girl is living in despair because a boy who conquered her heart has gone away with the promise he will be back in a year's time. Natalia, who at first doesn't reply to Mario, finds in him a type soul, but her heart belongs to the boy she waits for.Marcello Mastroianni's Mario is fine. He was at one of the most interesting periods of his career when he worked in the picture. The greatest thing in the film has to be the stage at the night club where he is trying to receive Natalie to dance with him. He makes quite a spectacle of himself dancing to Bill Bailey and the Comets by himself while the another dancing couples admire him.Maria Schell, coming from other school of acting, seems lost at times, as though overwhelmed by the Italian cast around her. Her Natalia has equal parts of sadness and innocence. Jean Marais, one of the greatest French actors of his generation is seen as the tenant who steals Natalia's heart. Clara Calamai, who had worked in "Ossessione" with Visconti has some perfect moments as a prostitute.Nino Rota's atmospheric melody blends well with the context of the film. Ultimately the success of "Le Notti Bianche" belongs to Luchino Visconti who saw greatness in the text by Dostoyevsky.
