Zabriskie Point (Entire French Dubbed)



Zabriskie Point (1970) by Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni, widely noted at the time for its setting in the late 1960s counterculture of the United States. Some of the film's scenes were shot on location at Zabriskie Point in Death Valley.

This was the second of three English-language films Antonioni had been contracted to direct for producer Carlo Ponti and to be distributed by MGM. The other two films were Blowup (1966) and The Passenger (1975).

Craignant d'être poursuivi pour un crime qu'il n'a pas commis, il s'enfuit dans le désert à bord d'un avion volé...
