An excellent movie, with a young Jack Nicholson in the leading role, this is a story about a reporter who switches identities with a gun runner. It is a fascinating plot with many twists and turns but most of all, the cinematography is unsurpassed. It is shot in London, Germany and Northern Africa and is a joy to watch, evoking images from Lawrence of Arabia. I knew the director, Michelangel Antonioni, from film classics such as Blow -Up and Zabriskie Point, which attracted attention from 1960's cinema critics for interpreting the social scene of that period. The movie has minimal dialogue but is crafted scene by scene with great artistry. It is a movie that I can enjoy again quite easily.
