  • The Red Desert

    1964. Italy/France. Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni. With Monica Vitti, Richard Harris. "Perhaps the most extraordinary and riveting film of Antonioni's entire career; and correspondingly impossible to synopsize. Monica Vitti is an electronics engineer's neurotic wife, wandering in bewilderment through a modern industrial landscape (the film is set in Ravenna) [that] Antonioni has colored in the most startling and original way imaginable. The film is an aesthetic feast, but don't let that distract you from the haunting intricacy of the plot and the performances" (David Pirie, Time Out). In Italian; English subtitles. 116 min.
