Bernardo Bertolucci's 255-minute 1900 was a gargantuan undertaking, requiring the resources of three European countries and a trio of American movie studios. Set in the Italian town of Parma, the film's continuity backtracks from Liberation Day in 1945 to the occasion of composer/patriot Giuseppe Verdi's death in 1901. We follow the lives of two men born on that day in 1901, who grow up to be Alfredo Berlinghieti (Robert De Niro) and Olmo Dalco (Gérard Depardieu). Wealthy Alfredo sinks into

Great moments stud Bernardo Bertolucci's 1976 Marxist epic, but the end result is ambiguous.
The mannered elegance of the camerawork and lighting cocoons the whole sad mess within a veneer of utterly spurious 'style.'
What high hopes were inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci's 1900 -- and how few of them are realized.
The sumptuous cinematography by Vittorio Storaro and the beautiful score by Ennio Morricone are reason enough to rejoice.
[VIDEO ESSAY] "1900" (made in 1976) is Bernardo Bertolucci's crowning achievement of collectivist socio-political cinema.
This is a handsome film with fierce and heartfelt ambition that succeeds in capturing something of the extreme social turmoil of pre-war Italy.
Like a delicious pasta salad, ruined with intermittent slabs of Velveeta cheese.
Bertolucci's first failure after a series of masterpieces is an ambitious but structurally shapeless and thematically ambiguous historical epic that doesn't work even in its original cut of five hours.
