|Last Tango in Paris
Born in Italy in 1941, Bernardo Bertolucci is one of the most acclaimed auteurs in the history of cinema, fusing stylistic lyricism with provocative explorations of sexuality and ideology.
Bertolucci moved confidently beyond the influence of his early mentors, Pier Paolo Pasolini and Jean-Luc Godard, to develop a distinctive voice, often best elaborated in partnership with his long-time cinematographer, Vittorio Storaro.
This retrospective offers a rare opportunity to view Bertolucci's work as it deserves to be seen, on magnificent new 35mm prints.
