A disturbed young man decides to embark on the homicidal destruction of his own family. Taking a satirically super-sharp axe to 1960s Italian society and the manners and behaviour of a wealthy family, Bellocchio made a remarkable feature debut which, drawing attention and great acclaim on release in 1965, launched the 26-year-old filmmaker’s career.

Joint ticket available with Marco Bellocchio in Conversation £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less).
