Dir Michelangelo Antonioni
With Monica Vitti, Gabriele Ferzetti, Lea Massari
Antonioni’s first collaboration with poet Tonino Guerra extended his experiments with narrative: the sudden disappearance of a diplomat’s daughter while holidaying with friends in the Aeolian Islands is less the start of a mystery than of a cool dissection of the relationship that develops between her lover and her best friend as they search for her. Pace, positioning and perspective are all-important.
