Synopsis

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. In Italian with English subtitles. Bernardo Bertolucci---Italy---1970---120 mins.
