The groundbreaking film that established Michelangelo Antonioni as a major international talent.

This long-anticipated theatrical rerelease provides the perfect opportunity to discover or get reacquainted with one of the most discussed films of the 20th century. When a young woman mysteriously disappears on a yachting trip, her lover and her best friend (Monica Vitti, in one of her defining roles) begin an affair while searching for her. Antonioni redefined the possibilities of film grammar with this penetrating study of the idle upper class, spiritual isolation, and the many meanings of love. (144 mins., 35mm)
