  • The Eyes, the Mouth

    1982. Italy/France. Directed by Marco Bellocchio. Screenplay by Marco Bellocchio, Vincenzo Cerami, Catherine Breillat. With Lou Castel, Emmanuelle Riva, Michel Piccoli. Seventeen years after Fists in the Pocket, Bellocchio reunited with his star, Lou Castel, for a follow-up study of class and family relations in the wake of a failed revolution. In a role that draws on aspects of his own life, Castel plays a fading icon of the 1960s who returns to his provincial hometown to attend the funeral of his twin brother, who has committed suicide. He finds himself drawn to his dead brother’s fiancée (Angela Molina), a working-class immigrant from Latin America, even as he blames her for his brother’s death. Premiere of newly restored version by Ripley's Film. In Italian; English subtitles. 101 min.
