Rocco And His Brother Blu-Ray

Rocco And His Brother Blu-Ray
From Luchino Visconti - the master director of such classics as La terra trema, Bellissima, and The Leopard - comes this epic study of family, sex, and betrayal. Alongside Fellini's La dolce vita and Antonioni's L'avventura, Visconti's Rocco and His Brothers ushered Italian cinema into a new era, one unafraid to confront head-on the hypocrisies of the ruling class, the squalor in urban living, and the collision between generations. When a tight-knit family moves from Italy's rural south to metropolitan Milan, the new possibilities - and threats - present in their fresh surroundings have alarming, unforeseen consequences. Operatically weaving the five brothers' stories across a vast canvas, with an extraordinary cast including Alain Delon, Annie Girardot and Claudia Cardinale, Rocco and His Brothers stands as one of the most majestic and influential works of its era. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present one of Visconti's most revered films for the first time in the world on Blu-ray.
