Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 “Blow Up” was the highest gross art movie to date and started the era of new film generation. Today you can hardly find people who watched it.
It’s a story about a young trendy London photographer, who rides a Rolls-Royce convertible and lives a life of “whatever”, having models standing in line at his door to get his attention. One of them is Veruschka – the superstar model of the time, who worked with Salvador Dali and earned $10 000 a day on top of her career. Thomas is portrayed by young David Hemmings, who became a sex-symbol after the movie was premiered. Jane Birkin plays an episodic role of one of the models.
Thomas accidentally witnesses a murder but is not sure about it. He becomes involved with a woman, who was a part of the mystery.
Blow Up. Michelangelo Antonioni, 1966.
