Classic drama from legendary Italian director Michaelangelo Antonioni. Walking through the dilapidated streets of Milan, stopping and staring aimlessly out at the world, is strikingly beautiful Lydia (Jeanne Moreau). Her husband, Giovanni (Marcello Mastroianni), is a popular author whose newest publication is being celebrated with a signing. When Lydia returns home later that night, she is unresponsive to Giovanni, and acts bored and aloof. Giovanni decides to take Lydia to a nightclub in town where they watch African dancers perform acrobatic cabaret acts with full wine glasses. But Lydia is still bored, so Giovanni takes her to a friend's elegant cocktail party, where they both stay all night, drifting from one flirtation to the next, uninterested in each other. An emotional and inconclusive conversation between the couple ends out the night as the sun rises.
