This monumental epic of fascism versus communism, owner against worker seems as timely for contemporary Italy – and beyond – as it did fifty years ago. Bertolucci’s original cut, running over five hours remains engrossing because of the masterful human drama of two lifelong friends who nonetheless remain padrone (owner), embodied by Robert De Niro (with Dominique Sanda as his forlorn wife) and workers, led by fiery Gérard Depardieu, both caught in tides of wars and social revolution.
