Bernardo Bertolucci's gorgeously decadent adaptation of the novel by Alberto Moravia gave Jean-Louis Trintignant one of his greatest roles as a suave lawyer who tries to sublimate his repressed homosexuality by joining Mussolini's Fascists.

This print includes a five-minute sequence which was cut for the film's original release, in which Clerici is the only sighted person at a ball attended exclusively by the blind — a scene that is no doubt crucial to what Robert Phillip Kolker has called the film's "dominant metaphor of blindness and sight."

"One of the ten greatest films in the history of cinema" - Paul Schrader
