Underexposed but fitting tribute to street washers!
9 February 2003 | by ManicheusSee all my reviews

The only available copy is very much underexposed so it's hard to actually see what is going on in this early Antonioni venture. However, it explores the wee hours of a profession altogether unglamorous and is a small tribute to people that keep European cities from being overrun by rats and rubbish.

A worthy pursuit and too bad that Antonioni's crew did not have a better light meter at hand.
