Archived: Partner - Partner (1968)

director: Bernardo Bertolucci

composer: Ennio Morricone
With: Pierre Clémenti, Tina Aumont, Sergio Tofano, Giulio Cesare Castello, Romano Costa, a.o.


Bernardo Bertolucci was obviously influenced by the films of Jean-Luc Godard and the worldwide political upheavals of 1968 while assembling his feature-film Partner. This unorthodox adaptation of Dostoevsky's The Double studiously avoids traditional linear storytelling and exposition techniques. Pierre Clementi stars as a repressed young student who concocts a radical alter ego for himself. As the student's two faces argue polemics, Bertolucci uses the opportunity to take freewheeling critical potshots at all forms of political ideology.
