The Conformist

Quote: The Conformist follows a secret police agent, Marcelo Clerici (Jean-Louis Trintignant) who is dispatched to assassinate his old professor, Quadri (Enzo Tarascio). Clerici uses his honeymoon with his new wife Giulia (Stefania Sandrelli) as the perfect cover under which to carry out his assignment. While on his mission, however, he becomes obsessed with the professor's wife Anna (Dominique Sanda), and slowly he begins to question everything he thought he believed about fascism.
