“Not with love – Not with money – They cannot satisfy themselves or each other!” (U.S. movie poster)
This is an excerpt from LA NOIA, aka “The Empty Canvas,” an Italian-French coproduction, based on the AKBERTO MORAVIA novel. This 1963 release stars Horst Buchholz, Catherine Spaak, Bette Davis, Isa Miranda and Georges Wilson, and was directed by Damiano Damiani. It was produced by Carlo Ponti, from a screenplay by Tonino Guerra, Ugo Liberatore and Damiani.
Dino (Buchholz), a bored Italian painter with a creative block, is left reliant on his rich, domineering mother (Davis), but finds escape in the arms of Cecilia (Spaak), a beautiful artist’s model, who believes in indiscriminate love affairs. Smitten with the captivating young woman, Dino proposes marriage, but Cecilia rejects his offer and runs off with a romantic rival. Finally realizing that his feelings for her will never be reciprocated, Dino takes a desperate measure to end his relationship with Cecilia — as well as everything else.
LA NOIA (“Boredom”) was filmed in Rome during the early summer of 1963. The cinematography was by Roberto Gerardi, with music from composer Luis Bacalov. Italian singer Rita Pavone performed the pop song “Che m’importa del mondo” for the movie. She rerecorded it as “Now That You’re Gone” for the film’s English-language version.
In Italian, with English subtitles.
