In this sumptuous black and white film, Vittoria (Monica Vitti) leaves her older lover (Francisco Rabal) for a confident and ambitious young stockbroker (Alain Delon). Antonioni achieves the apotheosis of his style in this return to the theme that preoccupied him the most: the difficulty of forming true connections amidst the meaninglessness of the modern world.
