Thursday 22nd September, 7.00pm
As part of the World Cinema Festival, The Albany Picture House presents Rocco and His Brothers from Italy.
Screened in Italian with English subtitles.
Luchino Visconti’s iconic film sees a tight-knit family move from the south of Italy to Milan. A mother and her five sons try to adjust to life in the big city where sex and desire conspire to pull the family apart. An epic study in betrayal and the bonds of family influenced by opera and the frenetic changes in post-war Italy.
A cinematic precursor to The Godfather and Raging Bull this epic tour-de-force has beguiled audiences over the years. It is not only a great Italian film, but probably one of the best films ever made.
“...a film both authentic and ambitious, a classic that is as adept at telling individual stories as it is in drawing larger parallels from them.” Keneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
