Movie Info

Director Michelangelo Antonioni's unique triptych film features three murders, one taking place in Paris, another in Rome, and another in London. All of the perpetrators are affluent youths, each killing for his own dubious motive. In the France segment, a group of adolescents kill for money, even though they don't need it; in the London segment, a poet uncovers a woman's body and tries to profit from the discovery; and in the Italian segment, a student becomes caught up in a smuggling ring, with deadly results. Though each crime is investigated, the guilty are rarely singled out for their actions. I Vinti had a protracted production schedule, due in large part to the director's inability to find funding for such ambitious, resolutely downbeat material.

Inventive film with brilliant photography and original drama.

Classic Film and Television

In the best Antonioni way, the humanity of select moments shine through, but profound patience is required to manage his studious approach.

This early Antonioni is not one of his stronges't: Composed of three segments, it's a rather schematic, message picture about lost youth.

Antonioni's blade-sharp compositions chronicle the war's amoral fallout in three different countries

Daring venture in nihilism.
