Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 03/18/2005
"[I]t's Vitti's and Delon's performances that make it possible to keep watching as the film paints an increasingly bleak but beautiful picture of modern life."
Film Comment - 03/01/2005
"[A] touching artifact, capturing the last gasp of modernism before contemporary malaise would be swept up into the great postmodern maelstrom known as the society of the spectacle."
Premiere - 05/01/2005
"[A]bsolutely breathtaking..."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2005
"[A]rguably Antonioni's best....It's the film's stillness and precision that lingers in the memory..."
Uncut - 07/01/2005
"At the very least as influential as LA DOLCE VITA. Mind-blowing."
