A youth discovers that he is not single-minded enough to be a revolutionary because he is too involved in 'a nostalgia for the present' - the beauty of life before the revolution. Set in Parma in the early 1960s, Bertolucci's second film, which is also partly autobiographical, was made when he was in his early twenties. It is a richly romantic work full of influences yet fiercely original in its renovation of film narrative

Alvise, figlio di un industriale, esprime il suo disagio verso la famiglia e la società fingendo di essere paralizzato alle gambe.

Durante il suo soggiorno in casa della zia, Alvise si scontra spesso con Stefano - un intellettuale di sinistra con cui Lea intrattiene da anni una relazione sentimentale - riuscendo abilmente a metterlo in cattiva luce. Così facendo il ragazzo conquista progressivamente la zia, le attenzioni della quale, dopo un tentativo di suicidio del giovane, sfociano in una torbida relazione. Abbandonati lavoro, amicizie e interessi, Lea è talmente presa nel gioco folle e perverso ordito dal nipote da giungere senza esitazione al punto di soddisfare l'ultima sua richiesta: dargli la morte attraverso un'iniezione di veleno
Before the Revolution( Visual )

Bertolucci was a poet before he became a filmmaker, his first film was heavily influenced by his mentor Paolo Pasolini. His second film "Before the Revolution" was loosely based on Stendhal's "The Charterhouse of Parma", the plot concerns a young man who flirts intellectually with communism, but eventually realizes that for him, life will always be "Before the Revolution." Set in Parma in the early 1960s, "Before the Revolution"which is also partly autobiographical, was made when Bertolucci was in his early twenties. Like the central character in this film Bertolucci's work has alternated between his attraction to European ideals of the left and his own high cultured, priveleged background. More recently, Bertolucci's films have abandoned political ideology in favor of straightforward eroticisim

L'Avventura = The adventure( Visual )

2 editions published in 1959 in German and Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young woman, Anna, mysteriously disappears on an almost deserted volcanic island. After setting out to find her, her lover, Sandro, and friend, Claudia, form a tenuous relationship; Anna is seemingly forgotten. Coming directly out of neo-realism, Antonioni rejected the dramatisation of psychology through established narrative conventions in dialogue, genre and editing in favour of observation and description, a cinematic equivalent of the modern novel, in order to invite contemplation of and reflection on the alienation of the protagonists. This approach had already been foreshadowed in Antonioni's earlier film Il Grido and suggested in Rossellini's Journey In Italy (1953)
