Matt Hendry's rating of the film L'avventura

L'Avventura is one of the pioneer movies that changed films landscape in the early 60's. Slow panning camera shots and concise black and white cinematography evoke a dreamlike, nostalgic state. This accompanies the disjointed narrative covering topics existentially such as love, loss, and guilt. Despite being boo'd at Cannes, this movie became one of the most influential avante Garde films ever made.
