because sometimes something great can be perceived incorrectly...

"in 1966, at the twentieth cannes film festival, when michelangelo antonioni won the grand prize for his film 'blowup', he made a declaration to the press: "i will never forget that horrible evening seven years ago when, in this very room, l'avventura was welcomed with protests and whistles. a disaster...monica vitti, my wife, giving in to a fit of nerves, cried all night. i consider this prize, not exactly revenge for l'avventura, but an event that will partly erase my sad and bad memories."
- michelangelo antonioni, may 15, 1967.
