    For me, though, where Before The Revolution scores more highly is in its more sympathetic characterisations. Trintignant’s Clerici is a brilliantly engaging performance in what is essentially an evil role, whereas each of Fabrizio and Gina are conflicted but more empathetic (particularly the latter), allowing us to get closer to the characters/5. BEFORE THE REVOLUTION (DVD + Blu-ray) A film by Bernardo Bertolucci. Young, middle-class and idealistic, Fabrizio struggles to break away from his bourgeois background. Bertolucci's beautifully operatic film, winner of the Cannes Critics' Week Prize in , celebrates the passion and ideology of the s, and is presented here newly restored /5(30).

Exploring a vast range of original sources, Before the Revolution spans more than seven centuries and ranges across North America, Europe, and Africa. Richter recovers the lives of a stunning array of peoples—Indians, Spaniards, French, Dutch, Africans, English—as they struggled with one another and with their own people for control of land 3/5(1).
