A drama about alienation in the modern world, director Michelangelo Antonioni's masterpiece follows the unhappy life of Giuliana (Monica Vitti), an emotionally disturbed housewife who avoids confronting reality and engages in an illicit affair. Co-starring Richard Harris, Carlo Chionetti and Xenia Valderi, this visually stunning art film uses striking images of stifling industrial landscapes to emphasize its theme of isolation.
