    1.) Antonioni and Carlo Di Palma's photographer's eyes—"the eye that shapes"—in each and every frame 2.) The literal voice and song of the landscape as conveyed wordlessly by the despoiled mise en scène, so like a living behemoth consuming all, as well as lyrically, in the beautifully redemptive story and song of the virgin sea that she tells to her ailing son. 3.) Monica Vitti in one of her most outstanding performances in which she tragically conveys a desperate cry for love, understanding and acceptance from the belly of a fallen world that is, today, as timely as ever.
