Michelangelo Antonioni's first narrative feature is a stark, minimal interpersonal drama that would establish many of the themes and techniques that would recur in his work for the rest of his career. Story of a Love Affair centers on the dynamic between Guido (Massimo Girotti) and Paola (Lucia Bosť), two old flames re-igniting their passions for one another. Tabs are being kept on both of the lovers by their current spouses as well as by a private investigator, but even after their pursuers

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A remarkable formal effort involving a detective, an adulterous trio, a murder plot, a choreographic mise en scene, and an extended flashback.
The film has its moments of crackling passion and secret suspense. It's an amazing film, and one of the great feature debuts in movie history.
