Paris, 1938 and Fascist agitator Marcello Clerici is ordered to assassinate his mentor, Professor Quadr, whose bisexual, socialist spouse, Anna has designs on Marcello's glamorous, but unloved wife, Giulia.
Funny and frightening, seductive and satirical, ridiculous and tragic, this remains Bertolucci's greatest film.
