Michelangelo Antonioni: I think the theme of most of my films is loneliness...Often my characters are isolated; they are individuals looking for social institutions that will support them, for personal relationships that will absorb them. But most often they find little to sustain them. They are looking for a home.
Roger Ebert: Looking for a home in a wider sense, is that the subject of all your films?
Antonioni: Yes, I suppose so.
Ebert: And you are looking for a home as well?"
Antonioni: Yes. There is no place in the world where I feel truly at home, not even Rome. And yet I do not feel particularly alienated here in Los Angeles. It is a city that no one likes at first, but after a while you can find places, little corners, places in the city that you can begin to like.
