THE PASSENGER

1975 / 126min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI

CAST: JACK NICHOLSON, MARIA SCHNEIDER, JENNY RUNACRE

Jack Nicholson, smack in the middle of one of the best runs any actor has ever had, plays a TV journalist in war-torn Africa who adopts the identity of a dead man and sets off on a new life, avoiding those who seek both him and his alter-ego as he begins an affair with student Maria Schneider in Barcelona. One brilliantly-original architect salutes another as Antonioni turns his camera on the city of Antoni Gaudí, and when lowering his capstone, the maestro has never devised so strange and beguiling a conclusion.

The Passenger is screening as part of the series Antonioni x 6. Click here for more info.
