Even by his second feature Antonioni’s interest in fragile relationships between restless, intelligent women and insecure or feckless men is evident. Bosé, drawing on her own history, excels as a shopgirl-turned-movie star whose idolising but possessive producer husband has plans for her career... The compositions and camera movements evoke the protagonist’s entrapment, even as Antonioni gently guys Italy’s mainstream movie business.
