A youth discovers that he is not single-minded enough to be a revolutionary because he is too involved in 'a nostalgia for the present' - the beauty of life before the revolution. Set in Parma in the early 1960s, Bertolucci's second film, which is also partly autobiographical, was made when he was in his early twenties. It is a richly romantic work full of influences yet fiercely original in its renovation of film narrative
L'avventura The adventure ( Visual )

A young woman, Anna, mysteriously disappears on an almost deserted volcanic island. After setting out to find her, her lover and her friend, Claudia, form a tenuous relationship; Anna is seemingly forgotten. Coming directly out of neo-realism, Antonioni rejected the dramatisation of psychology through established narrative conventions in dialogue, genre and editing in favour of equivalent of the modern novel, in order to invite contemplation of and reflection on the alienation of the protagonists. This approach had already been foreshadowed in Antonioni's earlier film Il Grido and suggested in Rossellini's Journey In Italy (1953)

This film is a social commentary about the mindless violence that is perpetuated on impressionable youth by television.

She contends with her monstrous offspring and student revolts until she can't take it anymore. Lorenz takes matters into her own hands by planting a bomb in the factory of her estranged husband.
