La Notte solidified Antonioni’s reputation as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau come together as a married couple living in crisis: He is a renowned author and "public intellectual"; she is "the wife".

Over the course of one day and night, the pair come to re-examine their emotional bonds and grapple with the question of whether love and communication are even possible in a world built out of profligate idylls and sexual hysteria.
