I don't know. The ills of modern society making people unable to connect with one another has been done better since. The first part with the island and the woman disappearing is truly arresting. The rest though, is way too glacially paced for my taste. Also cinematically, I prefer Antonioni's color pictures more than b&w ones. They drive home the contrast between humans and its surroundings better. I gotta watch La Notte.
