the conformist

Bertolucci’s breakthrough classic reimagines Alberto Moravia’s 1950 neo-realist novel, scrutinising Italy in the grip of institutionalised fascism. This visually intoxicating critique of politics and class returns to the big screen in a digital restoration supervised by cinematographer Vittorio Storaro.
