Film Classics in 35mm! Grand Passions: Five Films by Luchino Visconti
LA CADUTA DEGLI DEI; aka GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG
Italy, West Germany | 1969 | Luchino Visconti
The rise of Nazism during the 1930s is seen through the eyes of a dissolute, aristocratic German family (modeled on the Krupps) who manufacture steel and armaments when they’re not engaged in immoral, internecine power struggles of their own. Luchino Visconti’s lavish, lurid wallow in pre-WWII decadence originally earned an “X” rating in America. With Dirk Bogarde, Ingrid Thulin, Helmut Griem, Helmut Berger, and Charlotte Rampling.
