----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------    L'avventura 
by Michelangelo Antonioni (1960)
A study in modern-day alienation and unsettleness, shot in beautiful italian scenery.
Released in 1960, the film was booed by members of the audience during its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival (Antonioni and Vitti fled the theater); but after a second screening it won the Jury Prize and went on to both international box office success and what has since been described as "hysteria."
L'Avventura influenced the visual language of cinema, changing how subsequent films looked, and has been named by some critics as one of the best ever made. 

Starring  Gabriele Ferzetti, Monica Vitti and Lea Massari
