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, Richard Harris also stars as the restless Young man WHO finds himself drawn to her.
Italy´s industrial landscape is renderet 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.
