Monica Vitti portrays a woman suffocating in an increasingly industrialized Italy, questioning her marriage to factory manager Carlo Chionetti—and considering an alternate reality, perhaps with Richard Harris. Making a dazzling leap into color, Antonioni fortuitously teamed for the first time with cinematographer Carlo Di Palma, and for the fourth time with real-life muse Vitti.
