Adapting Giuseppe di Lampedusa’s literary masterwork, director Luchino Visconti focuses on philosophical, melancholic Prince Salina (Burt Lancaster), a Sicilian nobleman well aware of the inevitability of the violent Garibaldi-led upheavals then occurring in his country. He is determined to see his family survive, in whatever form, and he watches approvingly as his nephew Tancredi (Alain Delon) becomes engaged to the smolderingly beautiful and sweet-natured Angelica (Claudia Cardinale), the daughter of a wealthy, wily merchant. With a sublime score by the incomparable Nino Rota. If you have never seen it on the big screen, now is your chance! "…One of Visconti's achievements is to make that rare thing, a great film of a great book…The cinema at its best can give us the illusion of living another life, and that's what happens here…miraculous and emotionally devastating…" - Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times. In Italian with English subtitles.
