DIRECTOR: MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI
CAST: GABRIELE FERZETTI, MONICA VITTI, LEA MASSARI
When Anna (Lea Massari) disappears while on a yachting holiday in the Aeolian Islands, her lover (Gabriele Ferzetti) and her friend (Monica Vitti) set out to solve the enigma of her disappearance, only to lose the thread of the mystery as they embark on an affair of their own. The succès de scandale of Cannes 1960, Antonioni’s breakthrough introduced a new sense of drift to cinema, both in the meandering of the disjunctive plot and the wandering of the widescreen frame, unmoored from human concerns. A quiet revolution.
