THE CONFORMIST

Dir. Bernardo Bertolucci (Italy: 1970), 107 min. The Conformist is the story of Marcello Clerici, a weak-willed Italian man ordered to assassinate his former Professor by Mussolini’s secret police. Set in Europe during the First World War, the film is a case study of fascism that also portrays the psychological need to conform, to live a ‘normal’ life. The Conformist was highly acclaimed and in 2010 was included in Empire Magazine’s "The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema".
