Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni

United Kingdom, Italy 1966 111 mins. In English

Antonioni’s landmark film set a new course for the cinema with its stylistic flourishes, jazzy score by Herbie Hancock, and existential probing of the relationship between image, representation, and reality in modern culture. A London fashion photographer (David Hemmings) photographs a woman (Vanessa Redgrave) in a park and later comes to believe that he has actually recorded the scene of a murder. As he later probes the image, his life of sterile pleasure gives way to a fragmenting search for truth. With Sarah Miles and Jane Birkin. “It remains a deadpan delight—witty, sexy, nasty, tricky.”—David Thomson, Have You Seen?
