Following L’avventura and La notte, this cool, subtly stylised account of a young woman (Vitti) ending one affair and embarking, tentatively, on another completed Antonioni’s loose trilogy of films about faltering relationships troubled by the alienating distractions of modern life. Gianni Di Venanzo’s meticulously lit and framed compositions speak volumes about ennui, misdirected energies and the seemingly insurmountable communication barrier between individuals.
