Blow-Up

A film by Michelangelo Antonioni

Back
Blow-Up is the story of a day in the life of a photographer and what he experiences during that day. At the park, he takes pictures of two people and later on, through the photographs, he discovers something he had failed to see. An element of reality that appears real and, as a matter of fact, it is.
However reality has a quality of freedom about it that is hard to explain. By the end of the day the photographer has learnt a few things, like playing with an imaginary ball, which is not too bad of a result, after all. Blow-Up is, perhaps, like Zen: the moment you explain it, you betray it.
