101min
Digital

Certificate PG

A rich industrialist, provoked by groundless jealousy, hires a detective to investigate the past of the young woman (Bosé) he impulsively married several years earlier: the move has unfortunate consequences. While the narrative is more focused than in his later work, this is undoubtedly an Antonioni film, with striking compositions, an implacable sense of place and a nagging atmosphere of confused anxiety.
