An Antonioni film will frequently pose a riddle, and then never answer it; here the mystery of why Rosetta tries to kill herself becomes a pretense for the rest of the film.

Antonioni turns a glossy romantic melodrama of modern prosperity inside out to reveal the essence of modernity itself.

The expressive elegance of Antonioni's camera movements -- the way he glides around a scene, composing and recomposing the human figures within it to suggest psychological patterns and unacknowledged erotic connections -- still has the power to amaze.

Antonioni's ability to use the screen's illusion of depth or the way he lends an eloquence to the space between characters is a marvel. How he has these people stand is so much more expressive than anything they say.

Fortunately, relief for the navel-gazing conversations comes in the actual film craft -- photography, production design, music, control of pace and tone -- which reveals Antonioni's blossoming mastery.

Long before the he put Monica Vitti through the existentialist-ennui wringer, Michelangelo Antonioni gave the world this muted melodrama about urban females dealing with boorish men, banal modern life and the occasional suicide attempt.

Without relying too heavily upon plot or story development, Antonioni delves deep beneath the exteriors of his characters to explore their mental makeup.

Though seldom seen now, Antonioni's fourth feature is one of his greatest films, in which diverse plot strands, character psychology, and a masterful control of the camera are perfectly fused.
