The Passenger

Antonioni's suspenseful and haunting adventure is a portrait of a drained journalist, covering a guerrilla war in North Africa who exchanges identities with a dead man. Leaving Africa, he heads off through Europe to keep the dead man's appointments, hoping that his new life will be more interesting than his old one was. One of Jack Nicholson's best, though least known films.
