Monica Vitti and Alain Delon find love elusive in this Antonioni classic.
Dir Michelangelo Antonioni
With Monica Vitti, Alain Delon, Francisco Rabal
The narrative fractures and uncertainties in this third film in the loose trilogy that began with L’avventura mirror those of the characters: Vittoria (Vitti), who’s just ended her relationship with an older man, and Piero (Delon), a go-getting stockbroker who soon signals his interest in her. The final sequence is rightly famous, but the stockmarket scenes are equally extraordinary.
