MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI (La notte) invented a new film grammar with this masterwork. An iconic piece of challenging 1960s cinema and a gripping narrative in its own right, L’avventura 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 (Once Upon a Time in the West’s GABRIELE FERZETTI) and best friend (L’eclisse’s MONICA VITTI, in her breakout role). Antonioni’s controversial international sensation is a gorgeously shot tale of modern ennui and spiritual isolation.

Haunting study of alienation

This film is one of Antonioni’s masterpieces in a career full of them. It follows the disappearance of a young woman and the the reactions this provokes from her disaffected group of friends. The cinematography and score are stunning, fully engrossing the viewer in the world of it’s characters. It is a fascinating and haunting exploration of loneliness and our often futile attempts to understand one another and ourselves.
