Blow Up” – A Film by Michelangelo Antonioni

In this masterpiece Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni deals with the fundamental questions about the essence of photography.


The main storyline seems to be an ordinary crime tale: Photographer Thomas (David Hemmings) candidly takes pictures of a love couple in a park.


When looking at the enlarged prints later on in his studio, he discovers that he has taken pictures of a murder.


But underneath the surface, this brilliant photography movie asks fundamental questions such as: As to what point can we trust what we see on a photo? Or do we eventually just see what we want to see? Everybody interested in photography movies should make sure to watch this classic.
