L' ultimate masterpiece of Michelangelo Antonioni's international period
Having left for Africa to do research for a documentary, the reporter David Locke meets a certain Robertson, who bears a strange resemblance to him. When he discovers his lifeless body in his hotel room, Locke decides to assume the identity of the deceased in order to start a new life. He will then go to the appointments noted in Robertson's notebook which will take him to London, Munich and Barcelona, where he will meet a mysterious young woman ready to follow him...
After Blow-Up and Zabriskie Point , Profession: Reporter is Michelangelo Antonioni's third feature film shot away from his native Italy in collaboration with producer Carlo Ponti. Adopting an aesthetic close to the documentary, his film is a treasure hunt led by the duo Jack Nicholson and Maria Schneider. At first a pure thriller, Profession: reporter turns into an existential meditation on identity and the quest for oneself, magnified by an absolutely modern staging.
