Buongiorno, notte / Good Morning, Night (2003) DVD9
On May 9, 1978 Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro was kidnapped by the Red Brigades, an extreme-left terrorist organization, after he publicly announced his plans to invite the Communist Party to Italy's ruling coalition. 55 days later Aldo Moro was assassinated. A film by Marco Bellocchio, recalls the final moments of this most-disturbing tragedy.

Rome, early 1978. An estate agent shows Chiara (Maya Sansa) and Ernesto (Pier Giorgio Bellocchio) round a large apartment, suggesting that the second bedroom could in time be useful Уfor the babyФ Ц but the two are not in fact married, and they are expecting an altogether different kind of arrival. Joined by Primo (Giovanni Calcagno) and their leader Mariano (Luigi Lo Cascio), the conspirators build a small prison concealed by a bookcase Ц and it is soon filled by Aldo Moro (Roberto Herlitzka), brought into the house in a crate. Over the next 55 days, Chiara sees more and more of the politician, both through the spyhole to his makeshift cell, and even in her dreams Ц and as he argues politics with a masked Mariano, and writes letters to his family, his former colleagues, and to Pope Paolo, Chiara finds herself conflicted between her ideology and her compassion.
