SYNOPSIS

Bertolucci's impassioned epic centres on the intense relationship between two friends, Alfredo Berlinghieri (Robert De Niro) from a landowning family and Olmo Dalcò (Gérard Depardieu). Bertolucci was only 34 years old when he crafted this multinational, and yet distinctly Italian opus which covers ap-proximately 70 years of Italian social and political history. Introduction presented by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Melbourne, followed by the film (with intermission).
