    Plus: A reprint of Antonioni's statements about L'Avventura, circulated after film's premiere at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival, and a new essay by Geoffrey Nowell-Smith
Director Michelangelo Antonioni displays true artistic skill with this masterful, ground-breaking mystery. In classic Hitchcockian-style, the suspenseful plot, coupled with expert photography and an electric cast, teases and tantalizes viewers, but the mystery remains steadfastly unsolved at its end. Jaded socialites, including Gabriele Ferzetti as Sandro, his mistress Anna played by Lea Massari, and her friend Claudia portrayed by Monica Vitti, set out on an ill-fated yachting trip that culminates with a disappearing girl on an island, a local prostitute, and a love affair set against the majestic Italian countryside. But the film, which won a Special Jury Prize at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival, is primarily a vehicle for Antonioni's exploration of human feelings and a penetrating study of the idle upper class. Criterion presents a new Special Edition double-disc set.
