Luchino Viscont is The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) is an epic on the grandest possible scale. The film recreates, with nostalgia, drama, and opulence, the tumultuous years of Italy's Risorgimento when the aristocracy lost its grip and the middle classes rose and formed a unified, democratic Italy. Burt Lancaster stars as the aging prince watching his culture and fortune wane in the face of a new generation, represented by his upstart nephew (Alain Delon) and his beautiful fiance (Claudia Cardinale). Awarded the Palme d Or at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival, The Leopard translates Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's novel, and the history it recounts, into a truly cinematic masterpiece.

This release boasts a stunning new high definition digital transfer from the original 70mm negative materials, with restored image and sound, supervised by director of photography Giuseppe Rotunno and is presented in its original wide screen aspect ratio.

The Leopard is a magnificent film about Italian aristocrats at the time of the Risorgimento which brought about the unification of Italy. Burt Lancaster is superb as the head of one such family in Sicily and his pragmatism concerning Garibaldi's troops. The director, Luchino Visconti, is himself part of an aristocratic family and has faithfully recreated the sumptuous background and conduct of the day. I enjoyed the film immensely and recommend it highly.

An oldie and a goodie, overall. Burt Lancaster plays a largely silent role, but is very impressive as the sardonic, impassive leader of the family and society. based on the book by Lampedusa.
