For me L'Avventura - was the biggest surprise of the year 1960. I will grant that my expectations were very low before seeing this movie. It’s not surprising that Michelangelo Antonioni can produce a good film from nothing. There are some scenes in this movie that I will remember them until I die. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. The whole movie is still very relaxing and motivating. L'Avventura is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.
