The main interest of Con Michelangelo lies most of all in the questions it formulates in a necessarily implicit way. In this film we see Michelangelo Antonioni painting, taking rides in his car, attending international festivals, and celebrating his birthdays. And lastly we find ourselves with a kind of home movie, one of whose special features is our confrontation with illness and old age through a close up look at one of the great directors in film history.
