Rating:

Good Morning Night is a 2003 Italian film written and directed by Marco Bellocchio. The film, based on actual events, tells the story of members of the Red Brigade as they kidnap Aldo Moro (Roberto Herlitzka), former prime minsters of Italy and the leader of the Democrazia Cristiana (Christian Democracy) party. While held in captivity, Moro writes letters to politicians and religious leaders, including Pope Paul VI, asking to be released. The Italian government, however, refuses to negotiate with his kidnappers. Chiara (Maya Sansa), one of the Red Bridgade's female members, begins to have second thoughts about the plan and composes a new plan to help Moro escape. Unfortunately things do not go as planned for anyone, and Moro meets his tragic end. Also starring Luigi Lo Cascio, Paolo Briguglia, Pier Giorgio Bellocchio, and Giovanni Calcagno, the title of the film is taken from an Emily Dickinson poem.
