MARX CAN WAIT
1968 was the year Camillo died. Nearly 50 years after the death of his twin brother at the age of 29, Marco Bellocchio gathers his family to reconstruct Camillo’s disappearance. Combining intimate conversations with the Bellocchio family and those who knew Camillo best with archival material, family movies and his own oeuvre, Marco attempts to manifest a ghost he has been dealing with his entire life. What begins as a family conversation morphs into an investigation on grief, guilt and responsibility, compassion, empathy, and love.
“A wrenching and tender film… humanely and sensitively told. Essential viewing.”
–A.O. Scott, The New York Times
A frank and revealing documentary… straightforward in concept yet psychologically profound.
A beautiful late work from an artist still pushing the limits of his self-exploration.
–In Review Online
“Rigorously intellectual and self questioning.”
