Film Description

Movie director Niccolo has just been left by his wife. Her departure gives him the idea of making a movie about women in relationships. He begins his search for a leading lady and subconsiously also in his own life. The director soon becomes romantically involved with two lovers but fails to juggle the relationships. Niccolo is left alienated and confused when one of the women mysteriously disappears and the other becomes pregnant with another man's child. With its sense of incommunicability and detachment, Identification of a Woman was welcomed by many as something of a return to form for acclaimed Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni, winning the 35th Anniversary Prize at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival.
