Corum - Opéra Berlioz Vendredi 28 octobre 2011, 19 h 00

Italy, 1930s. Marcello is haunted by the death of a homosexual who he thinks he has killed. The fear of conforming with the majority pushes him to join the Fascists and to marry Giulia, a bourgeoise who perfectly represents his social ideals. He will find himself as an accomplice in the assassination of Luca Quadri, his former college philosophy professor, an intellectual opponent of Mussolini who has taken refuge abroad.

Bernardo Bertolucci

Born in Parma in 1941. The son of the poet and critic Attilio Bertolucci, he met Pasolini at Rome University and became his assistant on Accatone (1961) and then made La commare secca (1962), his first feature film. In Prima della rivoluzione (1964) he stressed the dilemmas of the Italian intellectuals who were both conformist and cultivated, revolutionary and conservative. Taking inspiration from Borges and Moravia, he made La strategia del ragno (The Spider's Stratagem (1970) and Il conformista (The Conformist (1971), depicting beings in search of personal and political identity in the context of the rise of fascism. After the scandalous Last Tango in Paris (1972) and 1900 (1976), he broadened his palette with La Luna (1979) and La tragedia di un uomo ridicolo (1981). Abroad, he made L'ultimo imperatore (The Last Emperor) and The Sheltering Sky and then returned to Italy with Stealing Beauty (Io ballo da sola (1996) and Besieged (1999). The Dreamers, the story of three young people in Paris in May 1968 was released in 2003.
