Il Grido is the silent cry of a worker who finds he cannot communicate with those he loves and so begins a downward spiral towards a state of mental disintegration. Marxist and Freudian overtones infuse this early Antonioni masterpiece that explores the alienation of modern man from his environment and those he loves.
