I remember when I first saw “The conversation” fifteen years ago I was not very impressed with the film. At that time I accounted my disappointment to the connection I made with Antonioni’s “Blow Up.” I thought Coppola re-made the same film, but in a sound format, instead of a visual one. “The Conversation” can also be interpreted by Godard’s idea and practice, that in order to criticize a film he makes one. However, I do not think that was Coppola’s intention. Nevertheless, the film made an impression on me, which at that point I did not understand.
