1900 (Novecento) - Bernardo Bertolucci’s epic masterpiece of friendship and betrayal - is a stunning five-hour saga featuring an award-winning international cast including Robert De Niro and Gérard Depardieu, on Bluray for the first time in the UK on 18 April 2016.
After the international firestorm of Last Tango in Paris, Bernardo Bertolucci went on to create one of the grandest and most legendary epics in modern cinema: A stunning saga following the intertwined fates of two childhood friends born on the same day in 1900 at opposite ends of the social scale through five decades of class struggle.
Described by Pauline Kael as making most other films “look like something you hold up on the end of a toothpick”, Robert De Niro and Gérard Depardieu headline an extraordinary cast, including Burt Lancaster, Alida Valli, Sterling Hayden, Stefania Sandrelli and Donald Sutherland.
