Satire and Morality: the Cinema of Marco Bellocchio

La condanna

in Italian with EN subs

ITA/FRA/CHE | 1991 | dir. Marco Bellocchio, with Vittorio Mezzogiorno, Andrzej Seweryn, Claire Nebout, Grazyna Szapolowska

A highly charged and controversial story depicting the trial of a lecturer, accused by one of his students of rape, while on a visit to a museum. Imbued with Bellocchio’s reflection of psychoanalytic investigations of male and female heterosexuality, The Conviction is a complex film, which has, in the light of recent events, perhaps become more challenging and polemical.
