A young woman mysteriously disappears on a yachting trip to a remote volcanic island in the Mediterranean. Her disaffected lover and best friend embark on an illicit affair while they search for her.

Our take

There is no canonical Arthouse masterpiece more essential than Michelangelo Antonioni’s L’avventura. Mysterious, emotional, and gorgeously composed, it is a pinnacle in movie history and one of the most profound meditations on the human condition in the modern world the medium has produced.

L'avventura Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni
