Film Details


France, Italy | 1960 | Michelangelo Antonioni


Antonioni’s breakthrough film (seen here in a gorgeous new print) remains his most celebrated and influential work, redefining cinematic concepts of time and space. (It regularly places high on lists of the best movies of all time.) Monica Vitti stars in this tale of a group of wealthy young socialites who yacht to a barren Sicilian island, where a woman from their party disappears. The missing woman’s fiancé and best friend look for her—but become lovers in the process. The title means The Adventure. "One of the defining works of modernist cinema … Antonioni created, as the Cannes jury put it in 1960, a new language of cinema.” –Village Voice.
