CONVERSATION PIECE
GRUPPO DI FAMIGLIA IN UN INTERNO
1974, Minerva Pictures, 121 min, Dir: Luchino Visconti

Retired American professor Burt Lancaster lives a quiet, comfortable life in Rome surrounded by his books, paintings and other conversation pieces – until he is forced to rent a floor in his palazzo to a coarse marchesa (Silvana Mangano) and her companions. Visconti’s look at a bastion of tradition confronted by upper-class decadence earned a David di Donatello award for Best Film and boasts a strong cast including Helmut Berger and Claudia Cardinale.

THE INNOCENT
L’INNOCENTE
1975, 112 min, Dir: Luchino Visconti

Adapted from Gabriele d'Annunzio’s The Intruder, Visconti's final film offers a languorous look at a decadent Italian aristocrat caught between two women. Giancarlo Giannini stars as wealthy Tullio Hermil, who makes no effort to hide his mistress, Teresa (Jennifer O'Neill), from his wife, Giuliana (Laura Antonelli). His infidelity inspires Giuliana to begin her own affair, which only excites Tullio – until it results in a pregnancy. Composer Franco Mannino earned a David di Donatello award for the score, which perfectly fits the lavish visuals.


In Italian with English subtitles.
