A critically acclaimed, powerful and emotionally charged new film takes "embedded" to an entirely new level like no documentary on war before. An unrelenting account of frontline battle by U.S. Marines during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Severe Clear is a uniquely intimate, extreme, often horrific portrait of war.

The story of 1st Lt. Mike Scotti - who filmed with a mini-cam, sharing his thoughts through entries in a battlefield journal - this gritty film is like no other. Capturing the chaos and complexity of war, SEVERE CLEAR personifies the fear, turmoil, moral conundrum, heart-pounding reality and sheer adrenaline rush of combat.

Follow Scotti, a combat veteran from the war in Afghanistan, and other members of 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, as they are deployed after 9/11 for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Through their eyes - as they engage Taliban forces - we witness the raw sounds of war during a harrowing 300-mile charge to Baghdad, where resistance to their presence escalates.

As patriotism and youthful enthusiasm are paled by the brutal horrors of war ... each of them is forced to cope with life in the trenches.

Isabelle Huppert (AMOUR, THE PIANO TEACHER) and Toni Servillo (THE GREAT BEAUTY, GOMORRAH) star in Italian master Bellocchio's compelling ensemble drama in which characters in three interrelated storylines struggle with the moral impasses and compromises of modern life. The film's point of departure is a real-life right-to-euthanasia case that became a national controversy in 2008, culminating in a Parliamentary vote. Against this backdrop Bellocchio explores the differing values and outlook of young and old, reactionary and idealistic: that of a senator (Servillo) with a passionately pro-life daughter (Alba Rohrwacher, I AM LOVE) preparing to cast his vote on the issue; a retired actress and devout Catholic (Huppert) who tends to her own comatose daughter; and a troubled young doctor (Bellocchio's brother, Pier Giorgio) who tries to help a suicidal methadone addict (Maya Sansa, GOOD MORNING NIGHT).
