In the first, Marcello coldly kills several lizards in the yard between his home and the home of his neighbor and friend, Roberto. Marcello later obtains a slingshot and fires a few stones through the ivy that covers the fence around Roberto's family's house, only to find that he has killed their family cat instead of Roberto.

The Conformist

In its culture as in its politics, Italy lives under the shadow of Silvio Berlusconi. With his endless legal entanglements and sexual imbroglios and his colorful manner of governing or not governing , it often feels as if the prime minister has taken all the oxygen out of the room, the airwaves, the entire republic. The formative moment in the life of the protagonist, Marcello Clerici, comes at age 13, when he shoots a defrocked priest who has tried to seduce him. Moravia died in , a many-laureled man of letters. Several years later, three unpublished novellas were found by chance in a suitcase in his Rome residence. I just want someone to win so we can forget all this!
