Niccolo sifts through many photos of women throughout the film, but the one picture he holds up and sticks on the window is an iconic shot of 1920s-30s movie star Louise Brooks; a 1928 picture taken by Eugene Robert Richee, who worked for Paramount Pictures taking portraits of stars on the sets of many classic films until he was eventually put in charge of the main portrait gallery at Paramount.

Possibly the most atmospheric film I ever seen, it made a huge impact when I first saw it, and that opinion has never changed. If there is one film that conveys the mystery of life this is it. It is also a highly evocative picture of Italy from the perspective of the upper middle classes in the late Seventies. Crying out for a DVD release as the photography was excellent too on the original film showings.
