Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1900 (Novecento) presents a sweeping political epic of Italian history from 1901, the year Verdi died, up to the Liberation in 1945.
The film follows the stories of Alfredo Berlinghieri, the son of a wealthy landowner, and Olmo Dalco, whose family works on the Berlinghieri estate. Born on the same day, the two are bound by a close childhood friendship but are separated by social chasms and opposite destinies as they grow up during the turbulent interwar years.
1900 presents a critique of Italy’s unequal social structure, which remained unchanged through half a century of war, racism, and liberation.
