Bernardo Bertolucci, the Italian director and screenwriter whose films include Last Tango in Paris and The Last Emperor, for which he won the Academy Award for best director and adapted screenplay, died Monday in Rome. He was 77.

A spokeswoman said the filmmaker, who became known for movies with a colorful visual style and political films, died of cancer.

In 1962, at the age of 22, Bertolucci directed his first feature film, La commare secca, a murder mystery about a prostitute's homicide that uses flashbacks to piece together the crime.

In 1987, Bertolucci directed the epic The Last Emperor, a biographical film about the life of Puyi, the last emperor of China.
