A sensitive, passionate, and melancholic Antonioni-like drama with great performances, namely Alain Delon as a world-weary poetry professor, captivated by his student Vanina, a beautiful girl who is also marked by problems.

In "The Professor," Daniele Dominici(Alain Delon) and his wife Monica(Lea Massari) land in Remini, more or less on their feet. For him that involves teaching high school and finding a card game, led by Spider(Giancarlo Giannini). But on his first day at work, Daniele gets into trouble by going across the street to get a newspaper during class. On the plus side, he makes a connection with Vanina(Sonia Petrovna), one of his students.

"The Professor" is a downbeat and thoughtful examination of two people who in different ways are haunted by their collective pasts and classic literature. In this way, the movie carefully and deliberately dispenses with the characters' histories while making neat use of the various settings. At the same time, the scenes involving Alain Delon and Giancarlo Giannini resonate with their excellent chemistry together.
