Il Conformista March 13, 2008

Posted by mmonla in Art and Design.

I’ve posted below a few screenshots and an extract of Bernardo Bertolucci’s Il Conformista. The film explores fascist psychology through a mid-level civil servant (Jean-Louis Trintignant) who joins the secret police in his quest for normality. Not only is the screenplay well thought out, the settings are stunning. Shown below are a few screenshots of Trintignant walking across the government headquarters. Got to love those huge empty halls.

Even Coppola makes a tribute to the film through the blowing leaves reference in the Godfather II (yes, I’m a fan).




This is the asylum scene. I love the huge white box and the lined benches. Notice the flying leaves scene….
