Wee Hunk's rating of the film L'avventura

This is the first in the "Incommunicability Trilogy". People walk around wondering if they're loved, and if they're worthy. It's 2 and 1/2 hours long and it was booed the first time it was shown. Apparently those were stupid people, and they showed it again and everyone loved it. It won the Special Jury Prize at Cannes “for a new movie language and the beauty of its images.” Not quite a compliment.
