Members’ Rating: 66% – a new print of a classic

A new print of this acclaimed 1970s classic film. An insecure man joins Italy’s fascist party and is persuaded to become an assassin. The target is his former professor, but he dithers over the job. This is a beautiful, idea-laden and thrilling film noir. Jean-Louis Trintignant is magnificent as ‘the conformist’.

Italy/France/Germany, 1970, Bernardo Bertolucci. Drama, 1hr 51mins (15)
