317 minutes of pain or pleasure.

1900 (Italian: Novecento). Bernardo Bertolucci. This is a difficult movie to rate. I think you should see it simply because there are pieces of brilliance in it. Overall the movie does not rate well compared to other masterpieces. But this movie is an epic masterpiece in my youth alone. The reason is that I was forced to watch it for History lessons in high school and it made my love for movies even bigger. The movie may not be good, but imagine the impact of a 5 hour movie marathon during history lessons…. EPIC. Whatever you do, watch the 317 minute version so you get the full monty. Some classical actors have their young careers started here. (1976)
