The Conformist (1970)
The Conformist (1970) is a classic Italian film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. It tells the story of Marcello Clerici, a man who is willing to do anything to conform to the fascist regime of Italy in the 1930s. The film is known for its intense and powerful sexual moments, which are used to emphasize the themes of repression and conformity.
The most memorable sexual moment in The Conformist is when Marcello is forced to consummate his arranged marriage to Giulia. The scene is intense and uncomfortable, as Marcello is clearly not attracted to Giulia and is only going through the motions to please his father. This scene serves as a powerful reminder of the oppressive nature of fascism and the lengths people will go to conform.
The film also features a number of other sexual moments, including a scene in which Marcello is seduced by a prostitute. This scene is used to illustrate Marcello's inner struggle between his desire to conform and his own inner desires. The prostitute is a symbol of freedom and pleasure, while Marcello is a symbol of repression and conformity.
