A powerful psychological thriller and riveting exploration of Italy's Fascist past, The Conformist is one of the most breathtakingly stylish films ever made and one of the most influential, paving the way for the likes of Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Paul Schrader. Adapted from a novel by Alberto Moravia, Bertolucci's masterpiece centres on Marcello Clerici (Jean-Louis Trintignant), a repressed young man desperate to appear normal to the outside world, who joins the Fascists as an undercover agent and undertakes to assassinate his former professor.
