About The Leopard

Year Released:

Decadence, Detail and Lavish Beauty:
Films of Luchino Visconti One of the undisputed masterworks of the 1960s, Luchino Visconti’s epic The Leopard (Il gattopardo) recreates Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa novel of a Sicilian aristocrat in the tumultuous years of Italy’s Risorgimento. Burt Lancaster stars as the aging and melancholy Prince of Salina, whose culture and fortune diminish in the face of a new generation as the aristocracy crumbles. That generation is represented by the romantic pairing of Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale. Visconti recreated this world with nostalgia, painstaking detail and lavishness, winning him the Palme d’Or at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival. Italian language with English subtitles.
