Bernardo Bertolucci

Novecento (1900)

Director Bernardo Bertolucci Composer Ennio Morricone Cast Robert De Niro, Gérard Depardieu, Dominique Sanda
317' - 1976 - Drama - Dialogue: Italian, English

Italian history as seen through the lives of Olmo and Alfredo born on January 27, 1901, until Liberation Day on April 25, 1945. Olmo, the son of a peasant woman, and Alfredo, the son of the lord of the manor grow up together as friends until differences in class and politics separate them. Bertolucci, turning away from the introspection of his previous films, tried to make a popular movie of the class struggle using the style of bath American epics and the lyrical Soviet cinema of the 1930s.
