"a love letter to one of the most talented personalities of Italian cinema." - IL FATTO QUOTIDIANO

A documentary focused on one of the best-known female faces in Italian cinema, particularly in the second half of the twentieth century. Monica Vitti is a name that immediately refers to the great cinema, that of Antonioni, of which she was his muse, and of Monicelli, with whom she collaborated several times. But there were many other filmmakers who wanted her in front of their camera, from Dino Risi to Luciano Salce, up to the surrealist Buñuel.

It is a tribute to her career and her life. It traces the artistic rise of a star, divided between cinema and TV, where she has not only acted in TV series but was also a guest in various programs. Inevitably, one cannot fail to mention the private life of this woman, capable of being defined as sunny and at the same time introverted. Many people, from friends and colleagues, to critics and writers, and costume experts, share their memories.

Despite being forced by her illness to avoid the stage and the spotlight, Vitti remained an international movie star until her death February 2, 2022.
