Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni
Alida Valli and Steve
Cochran are featured in the story of a jilted husband who wanders with his daughter from
village to village and woman to woman until, after a last gaze at his wife, he falls to
his death. Set in the desolate landscapes of Antonioni's own childhood in the Po Valley,
the plot "develops no longer explicitly through major events but implicitly in silent
interstices between minor events" (Seymour Chatman). A breakthrough work from
Antonioni's neo-realist period. Italian with English subtitles.
