Danny Mansfield's rating of the film L'avventura

It's slow moving at first as a mystery but then they decide to leave the island and Sandro's and Claudia's relationship sparks. Suddenly we catch a glimpse of a world where the wealthy are bored and relationships are flat, and thus they always seek out new ones to fill the void, all while Anna's presence looms in the background despite being missing. Quite remarkable.
