Description

"A romantic fable for the new millenium! Bertolucci continues to dazzle and surprise us with his embrace of life." -- Vogue. When an African dictator jails her husband, Shandurai goes into exile in Italy, studying medicine and keeping house for Mr. Kinsky, an eccentric English pianist and composer. She lives in one room of his Roman palazzo. He besieges her with flowers, gifts, and music, declaring passionately that he loves her, would go to Africa with her, would do anything for her. "What do you know of Africa?," she asks, then, in anguish, shouts, "Get my husband out of jail!" The rest of the film plays out the implications of this scene and leaves Shandurai with a choice. "BREATHTAKING! 'besieged' is tender, elusive, and exquisitely layered. A thrilling reminder of what moving and personal art Bernardo Bertolucci can make. A deeply felt love story." -- ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY.
