My Brother is an Only Child is one of the best foreign language films I’ve seen all year.

 

The director, Daniele Luchetti, managed to capture on celluloid the draw of extremism and how during the 60s and 70s belief in political ideas was so strong that that loyalty to left or right could even rise above family ties.

 

Today’s Corriere has an exquisitely written article by Alessandro di Lecce which shows how the current climate in the Bel Paese is harkening back to those politically charged days.

 

In Milan’s Certosa Garegnano district, Black Heart (Cuore Nero) a far-right social club has opened a centre just meters from the base of Milan’s historical left-wing group.
