CGiii Comment

This features, possibly, the most vile wife in the history of any motion picture - she would put you off marriage for life (any doubts, watch this).

The desire to be normal can, in itself, take you far from the path of normality - as Bertolucci so beautifully captures.

It is a fine, complex work - definitely influential and the highlight of Bertolucci's career.

The(ir) Blurb...

This story opens in 1938 in Rome, where Marcello has just taken a job working for Mussollini and is courting a beautiful young woman who will make him even more of a conformist. Marcello is going to Paris on his honeymoon and his bosses have an assignment for him there. Look up an old professor who fled Italy when the fascists came into power. At the border of Italy and France, where Marcello and his bride have to change trains, his bosses give him a gun with a silencer. In a flashback to 1917, we learn why sex and violence are linked in Marcello's mind.
