Grand Passions: Five Films by Luchino Visconti. New Digital Restoration! Original, Uncut Version!
France, Italy, West Germany | 1973 | Luchino Visconti
The grandest, longest, and most indulgent of Luchino Visconti’s sumptuous historical spectacles traces the career of Bavaria’s “mad” King Ludwig II (Helmut Berger) from his 1864 coronation to his 1886 death. During that time he loved operas, castles, sweets, women, and men. Released in multiple shorter versions over the years, the film will be seen here in its intended original cut. With Romy Schneider, Silvana Mangano, Gert (Goldfinger) Fröbe, and Trevor Howard (as Richard Wagner). Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 257 min.
