From Luchino Visconti - the master director of such classics as La Terra Trema, Bellissima, and The Leopard - comes this epic study of family, sex, and betrayal. Alongside Fellini's La Dolce Vita and Antonioni's L'avventura, Visconti's Rocco and His Brothers ushered Italian cinema into a new era, one unafraid to confront head-on the hypocrisies of the ruling class, the squalor in urban living, and the collision between generations. A tight-knit family moves from Italy's rural south to metropolitan Milan. The shock of the new is violent and immediate. A mother meddles. A whore beguiles. Brother faces brother. Blood-ties come undone. We pity beatific Rocco (played by the immortal Alain Delon in a role specially written for him) and Nadia the harlot (Annie Girardot, capricious and scintillating) - the modern condition has shattered their lives.

Visconti at his popular best

Arguably the most accessible of Visconti films, and laying the groundwork for other gritty, realist, such as raging bull, every fan of this genre should see this film at least once. The artwork from masters of cinema is what really drew me to owning this, and we'll recommend the transfer.
