Avventura, L’ (1960) is an award winning Italian film from 1960. I’d seen this movie in the Criterion catalog since the first year I worked at Voyager in 1988 but never got around to seeing it.
it is a bit slow, but the scenery is great. The plot is not obvious as you are taken through getting to know the characters at a good pace so nothing becomes obvious too quickly, unlike today’s movies.
The Adventure, a story of life, the greatest adventure of all and how in short periods of time, life can change dramatically but in the end, when you least expect it or even deserve it, compassion may come your way.
