This deeply haunting psychological drama is the pinnacle of Italian filmmakers' critiques on capitalism and the Economic Miracle of post-war Italy. Bellocchio examines the Italian family unit in terms of interpersonal, emotional, and economic relationships in a way that makes one wonder if the traditional Italian family can weather the storm of extreme capitalism. I would recommend this film for someone prepared for misery, but interested in understanding Bellocchio's points of view.
