Monica Vitti, alienated from her husband and surroundings, wanders northern Italy on the verge of a meltdown. According to one reviewer with a column in The New Yorker: "Boredom in Ravenna...Antonioni's hazy illustration of emotional chaos may or may not have something to do with industrialism; he makes the hazy, polluted atmosphere so ethereal that one can't decide." According to the scholar who wrote A History of Narrative Film: "Her sense of personal dislocation and the chaotic impingement of industry upon nature are both heightened by Antonioni's impressionist/expressionist use of color, the first of its kind in the history of film." According to Facets: If you love Antonioni, you'll love Red Desert. In Italian with French subtitles.
