Identity. Alienation. Space. The little things in life were Antonioni’s preoccupation and never moreso than in this brilliant disquisition on unknowability scripted by Mark Peploe and Peter Wollen and Antonioni himself from Peploe’s story. It is about a man who trades his world for that of another man’s, to his cost. It is about the shapes we make, as Maria Schneider’s character observes. It is about the endless quest for something out of nothing. This is a film which simply improves with age.
