Antonioni’s second last film prior to his bold advance with 1960’s L’avventura concerns a group of high-society career women in Turin and the questions they begin to ask of their lives and relationships after one of them attempts suicide. Expertly adapted from a novella by Cesare Pavese by Cecchi d’Amico and Antonioni, this tightly scripted, performance-driven film makes potent use of expressive camera movement and masterly crafted mise en scène to highlight the existential tensions enveloping the characters’ sense of modern female experience. Starring Eleonora Rossi Drago, Gabriele Ferzetti and Valentina Cortese.
