An architect (Donald Sutherland) travels to Venice with his wife (Julie Christie) to restore an ancient church after the couple suffers a devastating personal tragedy, and soon find themselves embroiled in a dangerous mystery. Director Nicolas Roeg and cinematographer Anthony Richmond render the off-season Italian city as a perilous labyrinth, and Graeme Clifford’s dazzling editing makes Sutherland’s psychic dislocation startlingly vivid, as well as cutting together one of the most erotic love scenes in cinema history.
