Synopsis
Magnificently operatic, Visconti’s 1960 epic is a family saga told in five chapters (for the five brothers in the film’s family). Eldest son Vincenzo, who is engaged to Ginetta (Claudia Cardinale), was the first to leave his rural hometown for the hustle and bustle of Milan. Later, Vincenzo is joined in the city by her mother Rosaria and his four younger brothers, but each adapts to city life in vastly different ways. Second brother Simone turns to boxing and becomes enamored with Nadia, a prostitute. However, he ends up turning to a life of crime. Meanwhile, third brother Rocco (Alain Delon) becomes a soldier and ends up winning Nadia’s affections, which ignites Simone’s anger and jealousy. Even when Rocco decides to sacrifice his well-being to protect every member of his family, he fails to stop the family from falling apart in the end. One of Visconti’s most beloved works, the film came to influence The Godfather trilogy and Martin Scorsese’s films. Hou Hsiao-hsien even inserted two
