"THE ITALIAN FILMAST'S YOUTHFUL SPLENDOR, CHRONICLE OF A LOVE ALREADY CONTAINS THE MOTIFS THAT WILL ILLUMINATE HIS LATER WORKS."
A wealthy Milanese industrialist hires a private detective to investigate his wife's past. Going to Ferrara, the city where Paola lived and studied, the man learns that several years ago, the young woman fell in love with Guido, a modest car salesman whose fiancée disappeared following a tragic accident...
For his first feature film, Michelangelo Antonioni paints with sensitivity a portrait of a fragile and contradictory woman, magnificently embodied by the debuting actress Lucia Bosé. Reflecting a world composed essentially of points of shadow and fog, the aesthetics of the director of Blow-Up reveals the hidden meaning of things, things left unsaid and metaphors. With this work which skilfully mixes film noir and chronicle of morals, available for the first time on Blu-ray™ in its new 4K restoration, Antonioni begins his transition from classicism to modernism.
