Revisiting his fascination with existential dread, Zurlini's Rimini-set tale stars Delon as Daniele Dominci, a lecturer hired on temporary contract to small town university. Drawn to enigmatic student Vanina (Petrovna), the married lecturer enters into a fated and tragic affair. Brilliant tale of amour fou and one of Zurlini's best. This screening will be followed by Zurlini's short 'La Stazione'.
