Antonioni’s stunning film chronicles the sense of bored malaise among a group of affluent Italians. When one of their members disappears during a boating excursion, what starts as a missing person search turns into a larger quest for meaning and love in a climate of modern alienation and boredom. Meticulously crafted, the film manages to portray the contradictory emotions felt by the characters, not through direct dialogue or plot, but through its lyrical and melancholic images
