Anna is a wealthy Italian woman unsure of her feelings for her lover, Sandro. While on a yacht trip up the Sicily coast with some other upper-class friends including her best friend, Claudia, the group visits a deserted volcanic island. When the weather changes, they leave the island. However, Anna has vanished. Claudia, Sandro and another friend stay on the island during the night trying to find Anna. The next morning, the coast guard joins the search, but they do not find her either. Sandro and Claudia set out to search for Anna throughout Italy, and wind up falling in love along the way.


Michelangelo Antonioni (1912–2007) is credited with defining the modern art film. Among the most-cited contributions of his cinema are their striking descriptions of that unique strain of post-boom ennui everywhere apparent in the transformed life and habits of the Italian middle and upper classes. Detecting profound technological, political and psychological shifts at work in post-WWII Italy, he set out to explore the ambiguities of a suddenly alienated and dislocated country. He is best known for L’Avventura (1960), Blow-Up (1966), The Passenger (1975) and Le Amiche (1955).
