Hoezo in KINO

Not only did Michelangelo Antonioni’s ground-breaking L’Avventura win the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, it also gave the world the epochal breakout performance of actress Monica Vitti. An iconic piece of 60’s cinema and a gripping narrative on its own terms, L’Avventura concerns the enigmatic disappearance of a young woman during a yachting trip off the coast of Sicily and the search taken up by her disaffected lover (Gabriele Ferzetti) and best friend. Antonioni invented a own film language, which caught many audiences expecting a mystery by off guard; as in La Notte (1961), L’Eclisse (1962), and Il deserto rosso (1964), Antonioni is less interested in developing a logical story than he is in exploring states of feeling and breakdowns in human connection. This controversial, international sensation is a gorgeously shot tale of modern ennui and spiritual isolation. Italian Language with English subtitles.
