  • 1977 ----- color ----- 255 min ----- laserdisc
  • (Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci; with Robert De Niro, Gerard Depardieu, Donald Sutherland, Burt Lancaster, Dominique Sanda, Stefania Sandrelli, Sterling Hayden) This quintessential Bertolucci film captures everything that characterizes the director: his concern with the class dialectic and the battle between Marxism and Fascism, his painterly images of Italy, his historical scope, his love of Verdi, and his "divided hero". The plot is about as grand and baroque as one can get, entailing the history of the Italian people and politics in the first half of the 1900s, from the organization of the peasant class to the rise of socialism to the fall of Fascism.
