Widely and perhaps justly regarded as a comeback film for Marco Bellochio (China Is Near, Devil in the Flesh), this somber docudrama (2003) reflecting on the kidnapping and killing of Italian prime minister and Christian Democrat party head Aldo Moro in 1978 concentrates mainly on the four Red Brigade members who sequestered Moro, in particular the woman in the group. Lacking the historical background that would enable me to judge Bellochio’s treatment of this event politically as well as factually—it has been called both detached and loaded, unfairly slanted as well as balanced by some of its critics—I can only testify that I found the film both troubling and absorbing over two separate viewings. In Italian with subtitles. 105 min.
