Samenvatting

In Luchino Visconti’s exquisite Dostoyevsky adaptation, Marcello Mastroianni is a lonely city transplant and Maria Schell is a sheltered girl haunted by a lover’s promise who meet by chance on a canal bridge and begin a tentative romance that entangles them in a web of longing and self-delusion.

Le notti bianche Geregisseerd door Luchino Visconti
In his adaptation, Visconti taps into the story’s romanticism, employing an opulent style that builds upon that of his previous film, SENSO (1954), and which anticipates his baroque masterpieces of the 1960s and 70s.

With its setting of dark alleys, deserted canals and random encounters, White Nights may well be Visconti’s ‘gayest’ film – even though it contains no homosexual characters or situations. It is perhaps the most evocative film ever about the gay phenomenon of ‘cruising’ and the nocturnal city as a realm of boundless sexual fantasy.
