Film Series: The Conformist

1970. Italy/France/Germany. Dir: Bernardo Bertolucci. With Jean-Louis Trintignant, Stefania Sandrelli. 111 min.


A self-loathing fascist flunky opts to use his Parisian honeymoon as a pretext to assassinate his politically dissenting former professor – all in the name of normalcy. Bertolucci’s dense texturing and lusciously baroque style render this trenchant critique of servility in utterly cinematic terms.
