A rarely seen early work from one of world cinema's most acclaimed directors, Bernardo Bertolucci's beautiful and unique Before the Revolution - made when he was just 22 captures the passions and ideology of the 1960s. Young, idealistic and bourgeois, Fabrizio struggles to come to terms with these contradictions and master a transgressive love for his aunt

Part autobiography, part literary adaptation, part homage to the French new-wave and Italian neo-realists that inspired him, Bertolucci's virtuosic second film is an atmospheric, ambiguous portrait of idealistic youth.
