A real masterpiece! Antonioni at his best! He is able to capture in a unique visual style the tragedy that surrounds people and their inability to communicate. And yet they are always longing for comfort, love and forgiveness.
It starts as a mystery but it later goes in search of deep human feelings. The scenes are so rich you'd be surprised to be completely mesmerized and lost in his world.
