Over the course of one day and night, a novelist and his distressed wife lament over the disintegration of their relationship. Antonioni’s muse Monica Vitti smoulders as seductive socialite.
In the 1960s and beyond, Michelangelo Antonioni was an arthouse king who boldly redefined what modern cinema could be. L’avventura may be his most famous, but its equally masterful follow-up, La notte, is the best introduction to his world—a world of hypnotic beauty and aching loneliness.
