Good Morning, Night
Bellocchio’s gripping drama about the real-life kidnapping of an Italian politician by Red Brigade terrorists.
Dir Marco Bellocchio
With Maya Sansa, Luigi Lo Cascio, Roberto Herlitzka, Paolo Briguglia
A subtle, gripping and non-sensationalist depiction of the real-life kidnapping by Red Brigade terrorists of Italian politician Aldo Moro (Herlitzka) in the 1970s. Focusing on the growing empathy of Chiara (Sansa) with her victim, this is a profound meditation on morality, politics and the quality of mercy in modern life.
