This striking psychological thriller perches equidistant between Antonioni-influenced art cinema and the giallo wave, inspired by a real-life mystery and evocatively lensed in black-and-white by cinematographer Leonida Barboni. When Peter Baldwin’s romantic obsession Virna Lisi dies under cloudy circumstances, his quest for answers in her home village is met with cold shoulders and outright fear. Featuring future journalist and critic Pia Lindstrom, in a rare acting role.
