Blow Up, 1967

German Poster

Blow Up, the 1967 Michelangelo Antonioni English/Italian/U.S. crime mystery thriller, starring Vanessa Redgrave, David Hemmings, Sarah Miles, The Yardbirds (including Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck), John Castle, and Veruschka von Lehndorff (Russian model who is featured on most of the posters from film)
A successful mod photographer in London whose world is bounded by fashion, pop music, marijuana, and easy sex, feels his life is boring and despairing. Then he meets a mysterious beauty, and also notices something frightfully suspicious on one of his photographs of her taken in a park. The fact that he may have photographed a murder does not occur to him until he studies and then blows up his negatives, uncovering details, blowing up smaller and smaller elements, and finally putting the puzzle together.
