After his son disappears, an Italian cheese manufacturer is threatened by political terrorists who will supposedly kill the son if he does not pay a large ransom. Unsure if they really have his son and if the son is still alive, he has to decide if he should or should not sell his business to afford the sum. ~ Kristie Hassen, Rovi

It's Mr. Bertolucci's most rewarding, most invigorating film since Last Tango.
Perhaps the least known of Bertolucci's features, it is far from the least interesting.
As usual with Bertolucci, the film's style and bravura camerawork are clearly in the forefront, but the politics and social commentary never quite find their place.
Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man comes across as a parable about a son who dies and is reborn.
Bertolucci has a sure eye for the shabby moral dilemma of his central character, and with that, he makes sly comment on the state of the Italian nation.
