Nicholson’s war reporter elects, on a whim, to abandon his life and assume the identity of a dead stranger encountered in an African desert. Dismantling the traditional constructs of a thriller, Antonioni sends his protagonist into memorable spaces around Europe, accompanied by Schneider’s unnamed woman. In defiance of linear time or motive, they find themselves in transit through moments and identities, in search of something unreachable.
