    Visconti is one of World Cinema’s greats, the multi-awarded Italian director literally created ‘Neo-Realism’ with OBSESSION, his adaptation of ‘The Postman Always Rings Twice’.

    Visconti returns to the stunningly lavish 19th Century sets of his Cannes Winner, THE LEOPARD, in this, his last film; a deplorably overlooked brooding masterpiece... Presented here from restored HD materials, for the very 1st time doing justice to the film's cinematography, rich sets and story. Finishing where THE LEOPARD left off, we follow the disintegration of the aristocracy into moral decadence and sexual taboos, personified by a career-defining, powerhouse performance by Giannini (Mathis in Bond’s CASINO ROYALE & QUANTUM OF SOLACE) whose antihero displays hitherto uncharted monstrosity. Giannini is the aristocrat who leaves his wife for his latest mistress Jennifer O'Neil, but his morbid need for domination makes him want his wife back when she becomes pregnant by another man…

    Special Features:
    - The Innocent at work: a unique document: conversations with Renata Franceschi & Giorgio Treves, who both worked closely with Luchino Visconti during the making of ‘The Innocent’ and remained close friends with the director
