The Innocent at work, a unique document: intimate conservations 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.

The Innocent

Luchino Visconti, the father of Neo Realism revisits the dramatic themes from his award winning ‘The Leopard’ in his final work of art L’INNOCENTE. Driven by a powerful performance by Giancarlo Giannini (Casino Royale & Quantum Of Solace) whose antihero displays hitherto uncharted monstrosity, L’INNOCENTE is set against the opulent backdrop of the decadent aristocratic life of late 19th century and its hypocritical social conventions; telling the story of Tullio (Giannini) who, having left his wife for his latest mistress, is seized by jealous fury when he discovers that his wife has also taken a lover. Outraged by this unsuspected audacity, he will do everything to reconquer her…

Presented for the very 1st time in widescreen HD from restored materials doing justice to Visconti’s celebrated painterly cinematography, this epoch-closing masterpiece is the director’s last film – Visconti died on its completion.
