Bertolucci's first autobiographical film meant that the critics became aware that he was one of the bright young hopes of Italian cinema. "This is the story of the ideological experiences of a young man who thinks he's a Marxist but then discovers that he isn't," the director said at a time that revolutions were being made by the very children of the bourgeoisie. This is a film by, with and for young people, that hasn't lost a single shot of its contemporary relevance despite the fact that nearly 40 years that have gone by since.
