Luchino Visconti’s handsome final feature adapts a classic Italian novel about an arrogant aristocrat whose selfish double-standard philosophy causes ruin and misery. The 19th century villas and ornate costumes dazzle, but the depressingly fated story will be tough going for sensitive audiences. This new disc encoding highlights the intoxicating atmosphere, a beautiful recreation of Italian high life around 1900, and the intense performances of Giancarlo Giannini, Laura Antonelli and Jennifer O’Neill.
