Gabriele d'Annunzio’s passionate novel is brought to life in the final masterpiece from acclaimed director Luchino Visconti. In late-nineteenth century Italy, Tullio (Giancarlo Giannini), an insatiable aristocrat, grows bored with his timid wife Giuliana (Laura Antonelli) and neglects her for his mistress, the wealthy widow Countess Teresa Raffo (Jennifer O'Neill).

Newly restored, L'Innocente is a “luscious stab to the heart of the aristocracy” (Los Angeles Times) that is “among the most beautiful [and] disciplined films” Visconti ever made and a “fitting coda to [his] career” (The New York Times).

In Italian, with English subtitles.
