This documentary is now included on disc 2 of the 2 disc DVD (Criterion) of Micheangelo Antonioni's landmark film "L'Avventura." The documentary deals more with the work of Antonioni through a survey of his films (up to Red Desert) and interview with his friends and co-workers, not with the director himself (e.g. via a personal interview). Still, it does contain moments that are insightful (e.g. the interviews with the people who worked with Antonioni on various films) and at times moving (e.g. Monica Vitti's comments regarding the lampooned screening of L'Avventura at Cannes, how it devastated her, but how she was relieved and amazed to discover that the jury subsequently voted L'Avventura as the best film that ever screened at the festival). A must see for fans of Antonioni.
