New 4K Digital Restoration! Grand Passions: Five Films by Luchino Visconti
ROCCO E I SUOI FRATELLI
France, Italy | 1960 | Luchino Visconti
Martin Scorsese calls this epic Italian tale of passion, jealousy, and betrayal “Visconti’s masterpiece.” Alain Delon, Renato Salvatore, Annie Girardot, and Claudia Cardinale star in the sumptuous drama, about a farmer’s widow and four of her sons who leave poverty-stricken southern Italy to join a fifth son in urban Milan, hoping for a better life. But family tensions erupt when two of the brothers fall for the same prostitute. “With the emotional sweep of a Verdi opera and the narrative density of a 19th-century novel, Rocco and His Brothers represents the artistic apotheosis of Italian neo-realism.” –A.O. Scott, NY Times. “Five stars (highest rating)…Beautifully restored…Better than ever!” –Time Out New York. Cleveland revival premiere! Subtitles. DCP. 177 min.
