China Is Near
La Cina è vicina
An aristocratic brother and sister find their family is infiltrated by a social climbing duo.
Dir Marco Bellocchio
With Glauco Mauri, Elda Tattoli, Paolo Graziosi, Daniela Surina
This biting, brilliant satire, filmed in crisp black and white, concerns an aristocratic brother and sister whose family is infiltrated from within by a social climbing duo, who become lovers of the posh siblings. Undeservedly less well-known internationally than some of Bellocchio’s other work, his second feature is an impressive follow up to Fists in the Pocket.
