Unlike the usual political thriller, this film delves more deeply into the emotional psyche of the inhabitants of a fear-based political culture. The film is an interesting meditation on the ebb and flow of cowardice and bravery displayed in fascism and contains a solid and ambiguously thought-provoking ending.

The Conformist review

Marcello Clerici (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Giulia plan on their wedding. In a flashback, Lino (Pierre Clémenti), a chauffeur, gives Marcelo a haunting memory. Marcello is tasked to eliminate Professor Quadri. The score utilized were applicable, Trintignant’s portrayal was likable and its haunting conclusion seems to be fitting. The topics on fascism, social acceptance, normalcy, fate, love, cowardice and fear of political agenda were well presented. Direction and cinematography were gorgeous and picturesque. Screenplay was impressive with lines: "You've got try to understand women." "Do you believe at all in fate?" "I'm going to build a life that's normal." "Fight or be beaten." and "Don't hurt us please." Overall, The Conformist tackles on sensitive political and life relate...
