On the Beach

Italy, 1960, 143', black & white, Italian with Turkish subtitles
Michelangelo Antonioni invented a new film grammar with this masterwork. An iconic piece of challenging 1960s cinema and a gripping narrative on its own terms, L’avventura concerns the enigmatic disappearance of a young woman during a yachting trip off the coast of Sicily, and the search taken up by her disaffected lover (Gabriele Ferzetti) and best friend (Monica Vitti). Antonioni’s controversial international sensation is a gorgeously shot tale of modern ennui and spiritual isolation.
