Certificate PG

A young woman, back in Turin to open a fashion house, finds an unsuccessful suicide in an adjoining hotel room; the discovery leads to her taking up with a group of friends, and to one of Antonioni’s most astute and darkly ironic explorations of different attitudes towards love, life and work. The quietly virtuoso deployment of place, space and movement is supremely expressive.
