The Conformist Blu-Ray

The Conformist Blu-Ray
At the peak of his creative powers the 29 year old Bernardo Bertolucci eschewed the influence of his mentor, Jean-Luc Godard and partnered up with famed cinematographer Vittorio Storaro to develop his own style for one of the most visually dazzling and intriguing films of all time. Told in a non linear structure that would go on to influence The Godfather Part II (not the only influence on Coppola’s film), the story begins in Rome, 1938. Marcello (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is a young fascist who takes on the job of assassinating his former professor who has fled to Paris. With his girlfriend (Stefania Sandrelli) in tow he meets the professor and his young wife (Dominique Sanda) where complications arise. A thriller as well as a character study and investigation of Italian politics, Bertolucci’s Oscar-nominated adaptation of Alberto Moravia’s novel (an adaptation Moravia greatly admired) has gone on to influence filmmakers such as Paul Schrader, Martin Scorsese and Michael Mann and remains one of the great triumphs of world cinema.
