Bernardo Bertolucci directs this Italian epic drama that follows the birth and growth of Fascism in 20th century Italy.
The film follows the contrasting journeys and fortunes of childhood friends Alfredo Berlinghieri (Robert De Niro) and Olmo Dalcò (Gérard Depardieu) who were born on the same day in 1901.
While Alfredo belongs to a family of rich land-owners Olmo was born as an illegitimate peasant worker.
