Considered by many to be Michelangelo Antonioni's masterpiece. L'Avventura is an examination of alienation and self-discovery found in the morally decadent world of the idle rich.

Using "real time" camera shots and rich, landscape imagery, Michelangelo Antonioni creates an unpredictable world where nothing is ever resolved

Living in the shadow of industry, surrounded by the blighted landscape of the mechanized wasteland, Guiliana faces the full horror of existential doubt alone, and modernist culture offers her no solace, comfort, or concrete prescription to alleviate her anguish

"In this book, one of the world's great filmmakers gives us a rare and extraordinary revealing glimpse into his mind and peculiarly cinematic point of view. ... here he offers thrity-three richly suggestive pieces describing ideas for films as yet unproduced. These are not stories in the usual sense, but a series of narrative or imagistic "nuclei" which will, when elaborated, grow into fully developed scripts to be modified once again in actual shooting. ... these pieces take us into the workshop of a director who is at once a visual poet, modernist, intellectual, and acute observer of the human condition"--Book jacket
