  1. steeeeellaaaaa's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    The only thing that kind of bothered me was that some "chapters" didn't really add more depth to the other brothers, for example the only thing I know about Ciro was that he worked in a factory and had a girlfriend. #justiceforCiro

  3. Aditya Watts's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    Sep 17 Incredible Mastery and Control over the medium. Beautiful Cinematography. Perfect Editing except perhaps for the slightly indulgent pace. When you watch something far more technically mediocre like The Hateful Eight, you begin to appreciate the technical mastery even more. Cinematog, Edit, Mise-en-Scene..

  4. Bruno's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    Talvez tenha que ver com a minha expectativa neo-realista, mas uma resistência se formou em mim a partir da cena de Batavia - lembro bem? - da roda de Simone e pandilha a Rocco e Nadia. Implausível, mesmo em contexto operático, não há sequer uma cena intermédia de uma primeira abordagem de Simone a Rocco, nada lhe adivinha este temperamento tão irascível, ainda para mais seu irmão, sob o mesmo tecto moram, acaba(...)

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    Très beau film réaliste et violent aux accents très envoûtants presque balzacien par l'ampleur de sa matière : le portrait de cinq frères dont les caractères divergents donnent prétexte à une critique constante d'une société érigée sur les principes du capitalisme. On ne peut que louer l'excellente interprétation d'Alain Delon qui savait encore tenir un vrai rôle, malgré un narcissisme dégoulinant. www.cinefiches.com

  7. ihor's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    Immensely Italian and yet immensely universal. The persistence of cultural bonds and familial ties are tested amidst economic migration introducing a new world. Visconti portrays this in a Italian style and culture yet it's wholly imaginable to see this, and indeed it has been done, portrayed in any time or place amidst similar circumstances. The epic scale of Rocco ensures it's uniqueness.

  8. Renton47's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    My own disinterest in upholding family values prevents me from 'feeling' familial tragedies like this one; a lot could be avoided by breaking the sacred bonds. Visconti seems to be suggesting the same, in a finale that embraces the more level-headed brothers. A gorgeous epic, dark, encompassing, only a little bit silly, I'm more favourable to Visconti's earlier films.

  9. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    Oh Rocco, you bright and stupid angel.

  10. Luciano's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    Passando no Instituto Moreira Salles. Revi depois de inúmeros anos e gostei mais do que nem lembrava quanto já havia gostado. Alain Delon novinho! Que mestre Visconti, cada quadro uma aula.

  11. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

  12. Rodrigues Costa's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    assombrante, colossal. Visconti conduz de uma forma magistral, cada passo é dado com grande vivacidade. É cinema de verdade, palpitante.

  18. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    I find this a truly amazing but paradoxical movie. Let's reaffirm that Visconti is a master of staging and lighting and on top of that some of the locations were jawdroppingly beautiful. Yet as a Marxist he missed the mark completely, it is uber conservative. Women are evil, family values are more important than individual happiness and only the hard worker will have a nice life. Watch it though! It is beautiful.

  19. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    Visconti mostly aspires to the operatic, even in the early films. After Senso, we're headed that way in earnest, with delicious results-- mostly.

  20. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    The failure, and even the hypocrisy, of traditional Catholic values to face up to and fix a bestial world. With this, Rocco is a masterful allegory (no film more clearly presages Scorsese), and it's nuanced enough to allow moments of pure joy to fill the cracks between tragedies. But you have to have a high tolerance for histrionics to go the full 5. Neo-realism could play so uncomfortably close to a soap opera.

  21. HSBilly's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    a saint that was born in the wrong world

  22. pencils only's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

  23. marinos@agxivatein.com's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    Too long, slow and exaggerating for today's standards, I reckon, a classic nevertheless.

  24. AugusteB's rating of the film Rocco and His Brothers

    First half a masterpiece. But in the second half I got confused by Visconti directing Nadias downfall so full of joyfull cruelty. I am sure there are many theories about why it had to be like that but I was thrown out of it a little.
