Rossellini’s groundbreaking study of a marriage on the rocks (famously acclaimed by Godard, Rohmer and other Cahiers critics) is extraordinary for how it simply sits back to observe, with unsentimental, almost scientific detachment, the boredom and bitterness that beset an English couple visiting Italy to sell a villa they’ve inherited. The evocative use of landscape and sense of solitude even in company anticipate the later work of Michelangelo Antonioni.
