L’Avventura

Double Feature with PURPLE NOON (4:00, 9:15)

1960 • dir Michelangelo Antonioni w/Monica Vitti, Gabriele Ferzetti • 143 min • 35mm

An iconic piece of challenging 1960s cinema and a gripping narrative on its own terms, Michelangelo Antonioni’s L’AVVENTURA concerns the enigmatic disappearance of a young woman during a yachting trip off the coast of Sicily, and the search taken up by her disaffected lover (Ferzetti) and best friend (Vitti). Antonioni’s controversial international sensation is a gorgeously shot tale of modern ennui and spiritual isolation. – Janus Films

“Rightly considered to be a cinematic landmark.”
– Richard Brody, New Yorker

“It’s easy to bash Antonioni as passe. It’s harder, I think, to explain the cinematic power of the way his camera watches, and waits, while the people on screen stave off a dreadful loneliness.”
– Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
