Decadence, Detail and Lavish Beauty:
Films of Luchino Visconti The uncut and uncensored 177-minute version of Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece chronicles family loyalty and disintegration, and is one of the most powerful and emotionally charged movies ever made. Rosaria Parondi and her five sons journey north to Milan to seek a better life but the industrial north proves just as unforgiving as the desolate south. Simone becomes the first brother to find success – but his career as a boxer flounders when he meets Nadia, a beautiful prostitute. When Simone’s possessiveness drives Nadia away, she falls in love with his younger brother, Rocco. The lovers set in motion a shattering chain of events for which the family’s traditional values leave them unprepared. (35mm presentation)
