002- synopsis
 
China is Near (Italian: La Cina è vicina) is a 1967 Italian film written and directed by Marco Bellocchio. It is a satirical movie about the struggle for political power. It focusses on the conflict between a middle class professor running for office as a socialist and his brother, who is a Maoist(WIKI)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this Italian satire a poli sci professor from a large, wealthy family stirs up turmoil amongst his family and friends when he decides to run for office on the Socialist party ticket. His brother the Maoist tries to thwart his endeavors. Other family members get involved in the struggle for political power, sexual gratification, and money. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide (here)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

China Is Near
Carlo, an ambitious member of United Social Party, would like to stand for election, but he is forced to renounce in favour of more moderate and middle-class professor Vittorio Gordini Malvezzi. After becoming the professor’s flunkey, Carlo starts to go to Gordini Malvezzi’s home very often and quickly seduces his sister, Elena, whom he hopes to marry in order to improve his social position. His behaviour makes his girlfriend Giovanna jealous, who reacts, becoming Vittorio’s lover. When Elena gets pregnant with Carlo’s child, the two ex-fiancées, now free to start their social climbing, blackmail Vittorio and Elena, and force them to reparative gestures. In the meanwhile, extreme left wing tries in vain to oppose the system boycotting electoral meetings.(here)
 
003- The director Marco Bellocchio
 
Marco Bellocchio (born November 9 1939) is an Italian film director, screenwriter and actor. Born in Bobbio, Bellocchio began studying philosophy in Milan but then decided to enter film school, making his first film, Fists in the Pocket (Pugni in tasca), in 1965. His films include China is Near (1967), Sbatti il mostro in prima pagina (1972), Il diavolo in corpo (Devil in the Flesh 1986) and, more recently, L'ora di religione (My Mother's Smile, 2002). In 1995 he directed a documentary about the Red Brigades and the kidnapping of Aldo Moro, entitled Sogni infranti (Broken Dreams). In 2003, he directed a feature film on the same theme, Buongiorno, notte (Good Morning, Night). (via Wikipedia) (here)

-------------------------------------------------
Iconoclastic director whose feature debut, "Fist in His Pocket" (1965), was a scathing political allegory about a family of bourgeois epileptics. The film, along with Bernardo Bertolucci's "Before the Revolution" (1964), was heralded as the beginning of a new era in Italian cinema.
Bellocchio's subsequent films, notably the antic satire of Italian politics, "China Is Near" (1967), and the surreal, biting memoir of a Jesuit education, "In the Name of the Father" (1971), have continued to criticize traditional social institutions, though they have generated less critical enthusiasm than his (here)
-------------------------------------------------
Marco Bellocchio (Piacenza, 1939) shot his first feature film, Fists in the Pocket that triumph at Locarno in 1965. In 1967 he made China is Near, which won the jury’s special mention at the Venice Film Festival. He is well known as a political director and realized several films inspired by psychoanalytic theories. With My Mother’s Smile (2002) and Good Morning, Night (2003) he directed two masterpieces of contemporary Italian cinema. He has also founded a studio, Filmalbatros, which concentrates on producing (here)
