Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci
Bertolucci equates the rise of
Italian fascism with the psychosexual life of his protagonist, for whom
conformity becomes an obsession after a traumatic homosexual experience in
his youth. A dazzling descent into the nature of corruption of power, with
many now-famous sequences and extraordinary cinematography by Vittorio
Storaro. With Jean-Louis Trintignant, Dominique Sanda and Stefania Sandrelli.
Italian with English subtitles.
