Rocco and His Brothers 06/26/18
Luchino Visconti’s national epic looks and plays better than ever. A Southern family relocates to Milan, and each of the sons reacts differently to life in the big city. It’s one of Italy’s most emotional film experiences. The impressive cast includes a young Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale, and the great Katina Paxinou; acting honors go to Annie Giradot and Renato Salvatori, as one of cinema’s most ill-fated couples. Presented in a 4K restoration at its original three-hour length. On Blu-ray from The Milestone Cinematheque.
