RED DESERT (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Michelangelo Antonioni

Red Desert tells the story of Giuliana (Monica Vitti), a young married woman suffering a mental and emotional crisis and embarking tentatively on an affair. Vitti Antonioni's lover and muse, and the star of his earlier films L'avventura, L'eclisse and La notte - gives a magnificent, startling performance. Richard Harris also stars as the restless young man who finds himself drawn to her

Italy's industrial landscape is rendered both beautiful and apocalyptic in Antonioni's hands. Red Desert was a deserved winner of the Golden Lion at the 1964 Venice Film Festival and a high point in modern cinema.
