The Leopard

Il gattopardo

Directed by Luchino Visconti
Italy, 1963


In the 1860s, a dying aristocracy struggles to maintain itself against a harsh Sicilian landscape. The film traces with a slow and deliberate rhythm the waning of the noble home of Fabrizio Corbero, Prince of Salina and the corresponding rise to eminence of the wealthy ex-peasant Don Calogero.
