Milan, Italy: Ubulibri, 1982. First Edition, a trade softcover original. INSCRIBED by Bernardo Bertolucci on the title page: "Pour Pierre Goulliard / [unknown] / Bernardo Bertolucci / 4/11/87."
A critical study of the famed Italian director by critic and screenwriter Ungari, through 1981's "Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man" ("La tragedia di un uomo ridicolo"). The two would go on to collaborate on the screenplay for Bertolucci's epic "The Last Emperor." (1987).
Bertolucci's contribution to cinema has been a gradual accumulation of powerful films, each very different--some political, some personal, and some epic. The highlights of his work include "The Conformist" (1970), "Last Tango in Paris" (1972), and "1900" (1976).
From the collection of noted cinephile and collector Pierre Goulliard, who spent decades in the latter half of the twentieth century obtaining inscriptions from the giants of European cinema.
Very Good plus. Wrappers lightly rubbed overall, light bumps to spine ends and lower rear corner. Text in Italian, profusely photo illustrated throughout.
