Dir. Marco Bellocchio

Italy 2009 | Colour | 119 mins | Cert 15 | Drama

Cast: Filippo Timi, Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Fausto Russo Alesi

This masterpiece by the acclaimed Italian director Marco Bellocchio (Good Morning, Night) tells the extraordinary story of fascist dictator Benito Mussolini's secret mistress and her struggle for recognition. Giovanna Mezzogiorno (Love in the Time of Cholera) gives a raw and powerful performance as Ida Dalser, the woman loved by Mussolini and who bore him a son, only to be denied and erased from Il Duce's official biography. Rising star Filippo Timi (In Memory of Me) is superb as the young dictator whose ruthless ambition knows no bounds.
