This film from the era of radical youth protests was made in Italy by the great Hungarian director Miklos Jancso. We get a lot of footage of students shouting "Ho Chi Minh! Ho Chi Minh!" A journalist (Monica Vitti) is preparing a story on extremist youth and falls in love with a young radical (Pierre Clementi) who fears being killed by his companions when he is unable to commit a political assassination. Virtually unknown today, the film is a stylish ballet of love and death. It is also excruciatingly dull.
