As much as I love it and it's entertaining, there's one thing about it that always boggles me. SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS!






















After Alfredo's wife left him and his best friend went on exhile he decides to fire Attila. Wasn't it a little too late? "Hey, guess what, I fired Attila!"

 :D
I had forgotten that Sutherland's character was called "Atilla". What a subtle piece of political satire that was!

Just came across this nice You Tube tribute. Also, in response to a previous posting...

But what was the point of filling an historical Italian epic with stars from America?

... Bertolucci said that originally he wanted to have Alfredo (an aristocratic landowner with fascist connections) played by an American, for whom he chose De Niro, and to have Olmo (a peasant who becomes a Communist) by a Russian, but that he had problems securing a Russian actor so settled with Depardieu who is French. As for Lancaster, Bertolucci met with him on the set of Visconti's "The Leopard" where he was playing a very similar aristocratic role and Lancaster offered to play the role without fee. Sutherland is not American but Canadian and Bertolucci simply said that he was in Paris when he was casting and thought he would be good as Atilla.

There's much to admire about this picture, but in a way, isn't 1900 just an entertaining, five hour mess? Nothing really materializes, it played like a very twisted mini-series.

The Conformist, on the other hand, is a masterpiece. The Last Tango in Paris is pretty damn impressive as well. The Last Emperor (hopefully that's the name lol) is decent but pretty bland and ordinary.




Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

I liked this film, certainly worth a re-watch.  It has it's faults, even Bertolucci's version has a disjointed feel about it. The cinematography is real nice.  You have to have a strong stomach too, as it's pretty horrific.

I think people are being a bit harsh on Sutherland.  Sure the part/performance was over the top, but I reckon he's great in it. Very menacing, scary stuff!  His wife in it possibly went a bit over the top though.

I like De Niro and I think it's cool that he gets to name working with Leone and Berolucci on his CV (or filmography!).

Good film, helped with an exceptional Morricone soundtrack.

Smoke Tuco, so you can't bullshit!

Why's that?

Because he esteems him as an actor so much, obviously.

Oh yeh, guess it must have been that one. Il Gattopardo was made long before then in 1963.

Is it a good movie Titoli? I really enjoyed Il Gattopardo.

By the way, does anyone else think that the International title "1900" is more than a bit misleading? I think Bertolucci said something of this nature.
