Bertolucci’s most infamous and most-discussed film, the erotic psychodrama stars Marlon Brando as an American widower whose Paris apartment-viewing encounter with Maria Schneider leads to a intense sexual relationship that spirals downward from idyllic to violent. Rated X yet still a box-office hit, the movie landed the covers of both Time and Newsweek, brought director and star Oscar nominations, and got Bertolucci censured in his own country.
