  1. As we watch, we can sense, once again, the eye of a painter, the dreams of a poet and, tying them together, the vision of a master.
  2. The least opaque of Antonioni's films, unburdened by stylishness and his imagistic inflammations.
  3. A shimmeringly beautiful and wise reverie on love and desire.
  4. This is why movies were invented.
  5. It's that compelling sense of mystery, of the endless search and its undercurrent of loneliness, that sets this great filmmaker apart.
  6. 75
    Mostly it's inspiring: to think that a man of Antonioni's years and talents is still capable of producing such vital work.
  7. The impact of these stories is not in the words but in the way the mood, texture and the acting build each situation into a visually intense parable about the similarity of spiritual, erotic and aesthetic aspiration.

    A sad blot on an impressive career.

    This meeting of two giants of European cinema only briefly comes to life.
  10. It's not easy to endure, despite -- or due to the embarrassment of -- an all-star cast.
