LUCHINO VISCONTI: CINEMATIC NOBILITY
Double Feature!
WHITE NIGHTS / THE WITCHES
Co-presented by Luce Cinecittà
35 mm!

WHITE NIGHTS
LE NOTTI BIANCHE
1957, Janus Films, 102 min, Dir: Luchino Visconti

Based on a Dostoevsky short story, Visconti’s tale of unrequited love stars Marcello Mastroianni as Mario, new to the city and quickly smitten with Natalia (Maria Schell), whom he meets on a bridge. Natalia has returned to that bridge every night for a year, waiting for a man (Jean Marais) who had promised to come back to her. Giuseppe Rotunno’s wonderful B&W cinematography gives the town of Livorno a dreamlike quality, an effect accentuated by Nino Rota’s score.


35 mm!
