The Innocent (Blu-ray)


Luchino Visconti, the father of Neo Realism revisits the dramatic themes from his award winning ‘The Leopard’ in his final work of art L’INNOCENTE. Driven by a powerful performance by Giancarlo Giannini (Casino Royale & Quantum Of Solace) whose antihero displays hitherto uncharted monstrosity, L’INNOCENTE is set against the opulent backdrop of the decadent aristocratic life of late 19th century and its hypocritical social conventions; telling the story of Tullio (Giannini) who, having fallen out of love with his wife and infatuated with his latest mistress, is seized by jealous fury when he discovers that his wife has also taken a lover. Outraged by this unsuspected audacity, he will do everything to reconquer her…

Presented for the very 1st time in widescreen HD from restored materials doing justice to Visconti’s celebrated painterly cinematography, this epoch-closing masterpiece is the director’s last film – Visconti died on its completion. With splendid settings and opulent costumes and beautiful score, L’Innocente has one of the most memorable and emotional endings in Visconti’s cinematography.
