Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni
explores the evolving role of women in society in the story of the young
employees of a glamorous Italian fashion house. Although dismissed by some
as too formal and less interesting than the director's later works, this
early feature by Michelangelo Antonioni was called "one of his greatest
films" by David Thompson in Time Out. "Antonioni's
intensity and grip, and his vivid portrayal of feminine anxiety in
particular, make for a film that has barely dated at all" (Thompson). Italian with English subtitles. 99 minutes.
