It’s a bittersweet return for the fifth and final instalment of Issa Rae’s awards-magnet series.

If you’ve been hankering to see Michelangelo Antonioni’s favourite actor team up with Alf Garnett’s son-in-law, then this 1968 caper is the film for you. Mario Moncelli, a successful purveyor of commedia all’italiana, cast Monica Vitti as Assunta, a vengeful young Sicilian woman in Britain on the hunt for the man who seduced and then dishonoured her. Tony Booth’s Sheffield engineer is among her brief encounters as she travels from Edinburgh to Brighton, through a series of fascinatingly dated, swinging-60s culture shocks. Simon Wardell
