Gabrielle d’Annunzio’s passionate novel is brought to life in the final masterpiece from legendary Italian director Luchino Visconti (The Leopard).
“Ravishing! The lavish, colorful depictions of stately villas with their sumptuous furnishings and immortal art work and the characters’ exquisite attire are matched by the director’s carnal delight in the beautiful people themselves.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
In late-nineteenth century Italy, Tullio (Giancarlo Giannini, Swept Away), an insatiable aristocrat, grows bored with his timid wife Giuliana (Laura Antonelli, Devil in the Flesh) and neglects her for his more exciting mistress, the wealthy widow Countess Teresa Raffo (Jennifer O’Neill, Summer of ‘42). After learning that Giuliana is having a torrid affair of her own, he becomes tormented by her infidelity and descends into madness. An elegant, gorgeous and passionate melodrama rendered in the grandly operatic style of such late-era Visconti masterpieces as The Damned, Ludwig and Death in Venice, L’innocente is a fitting finale for one of the world’s greatest directors. (Dir. by Luchino Visconti, 1976, Italy/France, in Italian with English subtitles, 112 mins., Rated R)
