Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
A surreal and often abstruse tale about a woman and her innermost feelings, Oggetti Smarriti starts out with Marta (Mariangela Melato) and her husband taking a long train ride to go pick up their daughter from grandmother's house. Theory and practice are immediately at odds when the husband gets off the train to buy something to read and it starts chugging out of the station. Marta jumps off to go look for him, but he thinks the train has left with her on it, and he leaves the station. As Marta wanders around in search of her husband, she comes across a German (Bruno Ganz) whom she thinks she met while still a child. The two strike up a relationship, and Marta indulges in both alcohol and drugs on her way to falling in love with the mysterious "stranger." Stranger yet is the continuation of her saga as she may -- or may not -- find herself at last.
