Reviews:

A critical and commercial failure on its release, “Love in the City” was little seen thereafter. Yet this compilation of short film essays directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, Federico Fellini and four other soon-to-be-prominent Italian directors, is of great historical significance: a precursor to Lionel Rogosin’s staged documentaries, as well as the founding work of cinéma vérité, Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin’s “Chronicle of a Summer” (1961), not to mention the American television reportage of the 1960s
