(1960) dir Luchino Visconti w/Alain Delon, Renato Salvatori, Annie Girardot [180 min]

Although he did his most famous work with Fellini, Rota also scored multiple films for the great Luchino Visconti. In this family epic, Rocco (Delon) and his family move north to Milan in order to escape the poverty in the south. And they do find a better life, but not without a price.

“[Visconti’s] personal favorite, ROCCO’s mix of realism and intense, operatic emotion would profoundly influence the work of Coppola and Scorsese.” – Film Forum, NYC
