The Conformist (1970)

The Conformist (1970). Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. Starring Jean Louis Trintignant, Stefania Sandrelli and Gastone Moschin.

Based on a novel by Alberto Moravia which the director hadn’t even read when he agreed to make the film, Bernardo Bertolucci’s handsomely mounted film explores the culture of fascist Italy through the prism of Marcello Clerici (Trintignant) a weak-willed man who gains a position as a political policeman in the 1930′s.  1,070 more words
