Finally presented in its uncut form, this decades-spanning epic is perhaps the greatest film of the late Bernardo Bertolucci. In it, we follow the lives and rivalries of two men, one of the upper class (Robert De Niro) and one of the working class (Gerard Depardieu) during a period of massive social and political upheaval.
