Some great juxtaposition of wildlife and simplicity next to modern technology and machinery, but overall it seems incoherent, amateurish, and blanant propaganda for Standard Oil.
"L'Avventura gave me one of the most profound shocks I've ever had at the movies"- Martin Scorsese.
I think I could watch this film 200 times and never see the same film twice. Packed with subtle nuances within the shots, the dialogue, and even the characters actions. Director Michelangelo Antonioni wisely never reveals to much and instead keeps his camera at a distance, expect in a few stunning close ups that are the most telling of what's underneath but still keeps you wondering.
