Venice, 1867: a tale about a beautiful Italian countess’s destructive passion for an arrogant officer in the occupying Austrian army. “A lush, melodramatic portrait of seduction and betrayal, decadence and deceit, revealing Luchino Visconti at his most baroque and the Italian cinema at its most spectacular.” (Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader).

With Giancarlo Giannini, Laura Antonelli
Visconti’s final film, recapitulating many of his major themes.

LUDWIG

1972, Luchino Visconti, Italy, Col., 235 min.

With Helmut Berger, Romy Schneider

No Visconti film has more sharply divided critics than this staggeringly sumptuous biography of the mad Bavarian king, many of whose tastes reflect Visconti’s own. Most of the negative judgements were based on the severely truncated version released by MGM; this screening represents a rare opportunity to see the film in its full-lenghth big-screen glory. In Italian, German and French with English subtitles.
