In "China Is Near," Vittorio(Glauco Mauri), a professor, has been selected to be the socialist candidate for councilman, despite his severe lack of experience. Well, he is from money, so there is that. That might also explain why Carlo(Paolo Graziosi), a bookkeeper, is so resentful at being passed over. In the meantime, Vittorio's sister Elena(Elda Tattoli) continues with her affairs, as if nothing important else is happening which only serves to irritate her brother.
"China Is Near" is a witty political satire aimed at the Socialist Party of Italy which here is accused of waffling between the Communists and the conservative Christian Democrats.(Is it just me or are politics in Italy really weird?) And that's when they are not sidelining women or being distracted by sex. That is kind of ironic because the movie does tend to get distracted in spots, even while managing to be quite entertaining in the end.
Dopo il folgorante esordio de "I pugni in tasca", Marco Bellocchio descrive ancora i retroscena di una famiglia borghese della provincia emiliana.
film importante nel riflettere con luciditÃ e in estremo anticipo sulle dinamiche politico-sociali di questo paese, qua viene messo in luce lo scarto assente tra le parti avverse, niente di piÃ¹ vicino a quanto accada oggi di frequente. socialisti, cattolici, personalitÃ appartenenti alla democrazia cristiana qua rappresentano tutti la crescita delle bassezze della realtÃ politica italiana, in un caotico "magna magna" di voti, scambi di partner e intrighi sessuali. Grande msica di Morricone come nel precedente capolavoro I pugni in tasca. Fantastica "Poesia" di Don Backy sul finale.
