It brings you in a different time, for two hours you are completely detached from reality
Antonioni’s masterpiece. A shining example of themes that he chased to lesser effect later.
_The Adventure_ isn't that adventurous and that's the point.
Ever felt guilty over how quickly you got over losing a loved one? How about cheating on a possibly dead fiancé? Cope, perhaps, to this.
Not the fastest-paced of movies and not for everyone. However the cinematography/imagery are beautiful and the characters/story compelling
A beautifully composed, compelling film in which almost nothing happens
Although it has amazing atmosphere and camera work by Antonioni, the story feels like it goes nowhere.
Last scene...emptiness in dialogs...almost nothing happens...true masterpiece
Really great cinematography, somewhat of a flat ending.
Tough watch because of its immobility. But should be appreciated for what it means rather than for what it shows.
