AT/GER/FRA 1994, approx. 90’ each, directed by Axel Corti.
Continuing our programme of events to mark the centenary of WWI, the ACF’s Cineclub will screen the epic 1995 production of Joseph Roth’s Radetzky March (1932). The film, directed by Axel Corti, chronicles the decline and fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire via the story of the Trotta family. The film begins in 1859 at the battle of Solferino in Northern Italy where Infantry Lieutenant Trotta saves Emperor Franz Joseph I and is subsequently ennobled. Elevation to the nobility ultimately leads to the Trotta family’s ruin, mirroring the imperial collapse of Austria-Hungary (1867–1918). Due to its length, the ACF will screen the film over three consecutive Thursdays.
