The woman happens to be Vanessa Redgrave at the peak of her popularity. The film is very racy for the 1960's and with a Redgrave topless scene I can see where the popularity comes from. Michelangelo Antonioni was nominated for an Oscar for his directing of this, and the Brits nominated it for 3 BAFTA's including script, art direction, and best overall film.
I hated it. The main character was a jerk. The story never progresses anywhere with the foreshadowing it provides. It was a waste of time. With less than half of an hour left all I could think was, where is this going? What is the point? You can die without seeing this one.
