The Prince of Homburg
Il principe di Homburg
This beautiful and acclaimed period drama concerns a soldier who disobeys orders, with severe consequences.
The Prince of Homburg will screen as planned but unfortunately the only copy available of the short film, The Choir Master, is too poor to screen. We apologise for any disappointment caused.
Dir Marco Bellocchio
With Andrea Di Stefano, Barbora Bobulova, Toni Bertorelli, Anita Laurenzi
A soldier disobeys orders in the heat of battle, and despite helping his side to win, he’s set to be court-martialled and executed. This beautiful, austere and acclaimed period-drama adaptation of a 19th-century play by Heinrich von Kleist marked an important transition in Bellocchio’s career – away from interior, psychoanalytically influenced work to more accessible cinematic drama.
