In Michelangelo Antonioni’s first masterpiece, a disenchanted rich girl disappears during an excursion on a craggy Mediterranean isle and is quickly given up for lost by her fashionably bored companions. As her paramour (Gabriele Ferzetti) and best friend (Monica Vitti) continue the search across Italy, they too get distracted, desperately falling in love — or something. Wandering through starkly beautiful landscapes, they’re the quintessential Antonioni couple: sleek, sophisticated, existentially adrift. The director’s exquisite wide-screen compositions have never felt so subtly pregnant with meaning.
