Il conformista

Bernardo Bertolucci Italia, 1970

Carmen's rating of the film Fascisten

An intoxicating experience for sure. I'm wary of calling a film a masterpiece on my first viewing but it's definitely essential to watch. Words couldn't make justice to the pleasure I had seeing it. As a spectator I feel the confidence of a precise vision. Il conformista allows different perspectives to absorb, it's not just beautiful, well-crafted and thought-provoking, it leaves behind a vivid memory.
