“It remains one of the greats...This 4K digital restoration is gorgeous.”--Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

“Its richness is inexhaustible...Neither the neighborhood intimacy of MEAN STREETS nor the grandeur of the GODFATHER movies is imaginable without Visconti’s example.”--A.O. Scott, The New York Times

In this vivid and violent family saga, the five brothers of the peasant Parondi clan are traced from their beginnings in grinding rural poverty to the flowering of their rivalries and ambitions in working-class Milan.  Through the changing fortunes of one family, Visconti charts the societal changes that swept a generation from the fields of their ancestors to the cold concrete of the 20th-century city, and sent moral compasses spinning wildly.  In Italian with English subtitles.  4K DCP digital restoration.   (BS)
