This beautiful and atmospheric film plays up to Antonioni's key themes that run through his work lack of communication, the mystery - as a journey-of-self-discovery links the film with the director s earlier Blow Up and The Passenger. Visually, as the camera moves through blue rooms inhabited by bored aristocrats, through the fog on a highway, and along the lagoons of Venice, the aesthetic is beautifully Italian, but the emotional attitude is coolly French. Carlo Di Palma's cinematography at the Venice locations is superb. The movie director Niccolo has just been left by his wife. Subsequently he embarks on an obsessive relationship with a young woman who eventually leaves him and disappears (shades also of L'Avventura) while searching for her, he meets a variety of other willing girls (among them Antonioni's own future wife Enrica Fico). This gives him the idea of making a movie about women's relationships. He starts to search for a woman who can play the leading part in the movie.
The most openly erotic of Antonioni's features, and visually one of the most beautiful --Chicago ReaderSee all Editorial Reviews
