A mythical film that is romantic in the broadest sense of the term. A reference point for a generation that discovered sex, cinema, passion and pain on the monumental faces of Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider shut up in an empty flat in Paris in winter. "Sex is a new kind of language that the characters try to invent to communicate with each other. Sexual language means the freeing of the unconscious". (B.B).
Bernardo Bertolucci, Franco Arcalli
Marlon Brando, Maria Schneider, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Massimo Girotti
