The eighty-three-year-old Antonioni returned to filmmaking after a ten-year absence (triggered by a debilitating stroke that left him unable to speak) with this resolutely idiosyncratic treatise on that most old-fashioned of themes: beauty. Its four separate episodes, set in France and Italy, are based on stories in Antonioni’s collection That Bowling Alley on the Tiber: Tales of a Director.
