Italy 1998, 94 minutes
Dir. Bernardo Bertolucci
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / Romance


Aroview: Returning to a 'chamber-piece' setting reminiscent of LAST TANGO IN PARIS, dir. Bertolucci unfolds an enigmatic relationship in a Rome apartment between piano-teacher David Thewlis and cleaner-cum-African refugee, Thandie Newton. While psychologically sketchy, this fable of duty and love employs an engagingly baroque visual style.
