Bernardo Bertolucci's absurdist film based on a story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky stars Pierre Clementi as Giaccobe, a drama teacher who spirals into madness when he creates another identity so he won't be lonely. In contrast to the repressed Giaccobe, his doppelganger is brash, bold ... and dangerous. No longer under the control of his inventor, Giaccobe's alter ego grows increasingly sinister, stalking one student and eventually killing another.
