142 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Less concerned with a smooth plotline, Antonioni tells his story through the use of symbolic images and flawless character development. 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

Challenging the linear narrative by weaving multiple story lines and exploring a directorial style way ahead of his time, director Michelangelo Antonioni's unique triptych film, features three murders, one taking place in Paris, another in Rome, and another in London. All of the perpetrators are affluent youths, each killing for dubious motives. In the France segment, a group of adolescents kill for money, even though they don't need it; in the London segment, a poet uncovers a woman's body and tries to profit from the discovery; and in the Italian segment, a student becomes caught up in a smuggling ring, with deadly results. With elements that serve as a precursor to Blowup, Antonioni explores how modern society can produce nihilistic tendencies in the least likely characters
