Summary, etc.:
Concerns the enigmatic disappearance of a young woman during a yachting trip off the coast of Sicily, and the search taken up by her disaffected lover and best friend. Antonioni's controversial international sensation is a gorgeously shot tale of modern ennui and spiritual isolation. Michelangelo Antonioni invented a new film grammar with this masterwork. An iconic piece of challenging 1960s cinema and a gripping narrative in its own right.
