Bernardo Bertolucci's pre-Conformist film about a plot to murder Mussolini during a performance of Rigoletto, based on a story by Borges. Originally shot for television, the film recalls Visconti's Senso, with its sumptuous visuals and sense of high tragedy as a young man discovers that his father's antifascist heroism was worthless. With Giulio Brogi and Alida Valli (1970). In Italian with subtitles. 100 min.
