  1. Walker's rating of the film L'innocente

    At first I disliked it, but I've come to recognize it as Visconti's most brutal and austere film, if not necessarily his best. Something about that final image will always haunt me (I also found it interesting that his last three films all end with freeze frames). Nevertheless, I would rather see "The Rules of the Game" or any number of Bunel films all of which cover similar territory but are more fun to watch.

    Excellent adaptation of Gabriele D'Annunzio novel.

  3. dionysus67's rating of the film L'innocente

    Ravishing in form, Visconti's film celebrates the tragic twilight of the idols as modernity's displaces aristocracy. Its rapacious sexual appetites, legitimized in patriarchal structures, elicit the will-to-power's own self-destruction. Caught in the dualism of a romantic debunking of female romanticism, Tulio puts into action the noble act of suicide, exploded into a visual Valkyrie by Visconti's aesthetic genius.

  5. T.h. Marvelsteins's rating of the film L'innocente

    "If one day I were to judge my existence I wouldn't want to feel ashamed" A damning delivery to the Nietzschean lead man who feels that neither man nor God can judge him. So he sinks deeper and deeper into this darkly decadent and disturbing tale of fin de siècle haunted desire and obsession leading to insanity. The torpidity only adding to the atmosphere of sultry immorality. Breathtaking mise en scène and music.

  6. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film L'innocente

    Operatic. Clearly not considered the best of Visconti by my fellow cinephiles, there's a technical genius at play here and it demands we seek out the little details.

  7. Dimitris's rating of the film L'innocente

    With strong acting and production-wise and visually impeccable, Visconti's final film is betrayed by its script. The usually operatic Visconti, here becomes more melodramatic and soapy than truly tragic and existential. There is a layer of latent homoeroticism between Giannini and Porel, which is unfortunately never really examined, although its exploration would have helped to give the script the depth it needed.

  8. Noëlle's rating of the film L'innocente

    Operatic themes with fragile threads throughout. I feel sorrow and anger and I'm sure the story and the characters will remain with me for some time.

  9. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film L'innocente

    The final film from director Luchino Visconti is a tangled web of love, jealousy, and selfishness. While many may love the heady brew, I found it hard to care about any of the central characters, and was therefore rather unaffected by a finale that should have held a lot more power.

  10. El Biffo's rating of the film L'innocente

    I had to pause it several times to look at all the cool stuff in every scene.

  11. Maribou's rating of the film L'innocente

    A dark tale of villainy, madness and obsession. L'Innocente's ravishing opulence dazzles as Visconti sweeps us along in a slow, baroque arc toward the inevitable, black-hearted disaster. Shiveringly beautiful.

  12. Diderot's rating of the film L'innocente

    A beautiful final film from the master of ornate-yet-stoic emotions. Visconti is one of the under-appreciated movie geniuses, perhaps because his uniqueness is so old-fashioned. I think he's most fresh precisely when he's most mannered.

  13. Arf's rating of the film L'innocente

    una in più per Giannini

  14. FISCHER's rating of the film L'innocente

    Visconti abandonne ses démons intérieurs, et en particulier l'homosexualité, pour revenir à son style premier. Il nous offre un mélodrame inspiré d'un d'Annunzio égocentrique qui tente de solutionner son destin, par le meurtre de son enfant...

  15. postblueink's rating of the film L'innocente

    8/10 (22.09.2016). The Great in his last film damned people literary called "innocent", putting an end to his remarkable creative life of director.

  16. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film L'innocente

    3.5 stars. I remember liking L'Innocente" when it first came out. Already a Visconti fan, especially of his "risorgimento" films, I thought this was a beautiful addition to his period movies. The two women are wonderful to observe. I'd forgotten the beauty of Jennifer O'Neill and the sensuality of Laura Antonelli.

  17. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film L'innocente

  18. José Neves's rating of the film L'innocente

    Cinematography by Pasqualino De Santis.

  19. Daniel S.'s rating of the film L'innocente

    It's like a long walk in a museum, the production design being gorgeous. Even if I find the last scene between Giannini and O'Neill too long, the film is, in my opinion, a great introduction to both late XIXth century Italian literature and Visconti filmography. Highly recommended.

  20. T. J. Harman's rating of the film L'innocente

    A dark and underrated Visconti film. Giannini is great here as he is with his work with Lina Wertmuller.
