La tragedia di un uomo ridicolo (The Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man)(Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man)
After his son disappears, an Italian cheese manufacturer is threatened by political terrorists who will supposedly kill the son if he does not pay a large ransom. Unsure if they really have his son and if the son is still alive, he has to decide if he should or should not sell his business to afford the sum. ~ Kristie Hassen, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's Mr. Bertolucci's most rewarding, most invigorating film since Last Tango."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man comes across as a parable about a son who dies and is reborn."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Perhaps the least known of Bertolucci's features, it is far from the least interesting."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Bertolucci has a sure eye for the shabby moral dilemma of his central character, and with that, he makes sly comment on the state of the Italian nation."
‑ , Film4
"As usual with Bertolucci, the film's style and bravura camerawork are clearly in the forefront, but the politics and social commentary never quite find their place."
