Wracked by guilt and sexual anxiety, a fascist toady (Jean-Louis Trintignant) agrees to assassinate his former mentor (Enzo Tarascio), an exiled dissident. But with the task at hand, his ability to pull the trigger falls into doubt. Weaving memory into the present, Bertolucci's stylish thriller probes the psychological underpinnings of fascism and complicity.
Shown in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, The Conformist will be introduced by its instructor, Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
