Antonioni’s fourth consecutive film with Vitti cast her as a woman so distraught at an increasingly industrialised world that she turns for sympathy to a business associate (Harris) of her husband... Perhaps the most daringly stylised of all the director’s films, it deploys a modernist score, expressionist colour and sound design, and striking shallow-focus compositions to suggest the protagonist’s emotional and psychological turmoil.

The screening on Saturday 16 February will be introduced by Enrica Fico Antonioni.

Also available on BFI Player.
