Cecchi d’Amico was a key Visconti collaborator working with him many times between Bellissima in 1951 and this, his final film, released only a couple of months after his death. Italy’s high society near the turn of the 19th century serves as a backdrop for a searing critique of aristocratic hypocrisy and self-deluded, fragile masculinity. Gorgeously shot by Pasqualino De Santis, this sumptuous mélange of luxury, class, history and death is a sublime synthesis of the themes that forever interested Visconti, a haunting portrayal of a world clinging to its fading, spectral glory. Starring Giancarlo Giannini and Laura Antonelli.
