A very good movie

To be honest, it has been while since I have seen this flick but like everything directed by Luchino Visconti, it was quite fascinating to behold. I have to admit that, when I was a teenager, I thought that Alain Delon was a rather lame actor (at the time, he certainly didn’t have a stellar reputation in France or else where so give me a break…) and I had no idea that, in the 60's-70's, the gu... read more

Saint Rocco Parondi of Lucania

I guess in the end, Rocco's purity failed him. He's complicit in the murder of Nadia in a supposed act of selflessness for the redemption of Simone, the brute. But how about the feelings of Nadia, did he even consider? Probably maybe but most definitely not and that's the cross he has to bear.

In the end it is Ciro who appeared as the emotional anchor of the family. No wonder he has... read more

Saint Rocco Parondi of Lucania

“I guess in the end, Rocco's purity failed him. He's complicit in the murder of Nadia in a supposed act of selflessness for the redemption of Simone, the brute. But how about the feelings of Nadia, did he even consider? Probably maybe but most definitely not and that's the cross he has to bear.

In the end it is Ciro who appeared as the emotional anchor of the family. No wonder he has the film's final words to counter Rocco's "There's no hope now." declaration (even if to self-effacingly proclaim Rocco as a Saint).

The tragic ménage à trois-- bookended by Vincenzo's engagement party and Ciro's surprise rendezvous with his fianceé-- gnawed on their lives 'til all they could have left to hope for is a homecoming to much simpler times.

" At a very subtle level, the love between the brothers seems almost sexual, as in a late scene where Simone confesses to Rocco and Rocco fights with Ciro and vows to defend him. These feelings are well-concealed by the film, but they are there. - Roger Ebert Homoerotic themes. The two brothers arguably have sexual tension. In one scene Rocco tells Simone t"
