    As usual another beautifully told story from Italy.What I love about this is it's strong love of Family theme.Also the mind of the Italian is so practical,yet so funny.What a fine talented cast.And Annie Girardot Prostitute or not stole my heart as well.Any man would have fallen under her spell if she cast it upon them.Alain Delon is so handsome that he takes over the screen with his presence.He is so sensitive and innocent in his portrayal as Rocco.Just wonderful.Renato Salvatori is so tragic as you watch his decline from the madness that is love and a broken heart.All performers are worthy of mention.Katina Paxinou as is wonderful and as usual dominates her scenes with her great facial acting.No one,I mean No one,can capture love and passion like the Italian cinema.Luchino Visconti captures it all with this masterpiece of cinema.Outstanding!!A must for all who appreciate great cinematic art.

    When I wake up in the morning I generally don't like to have to read my movies, but this one turned out to be an exception. What a movie! It is long at about 3 hours, but I became so engrossed with this family that time didn't matter. One thing that struck me right off was that I didn't know any of the actors. So, I knew them only as their characters which was a nice change. I certainly enjoy seeing Cary Grant as Jim Blandings, but I still know it's Cary Grant and while he is one of my favorites, I see him more than his character. But, in this film I felt like I was just watching an Italian family by some sort of magic time-traveling-capsule-fly-on-the-wall-english-translating spell, and not a contrived movie. It didn't have the Hollywood glam, and it didn't need it. The story of these brothers and their mother was quite compelling. I'm a selfish only-child, so at times it can be hard for me to understand a large family dynamic, especially, as in this movie, where a lot of self-sacrifice is going on. But, I think it was developed well here, where as Rocco was always willing to sacrifice for his brother Simone out of misplaced guilt and familial responsibility; his other two brothers, Vince and Ciro, not so much. It was a joy to see the family together celebrating and laughing, but when Simone shows up at the end it literally gave me chills. This film also has so many small details that when you see them you know you're watching a great screenplay and a director who cares about the small nuances that really showcase good story telling. The only downside was I didn't learn to speak Italian while watching this film. I was hoping I might pick it up so I could watch the film again without having to read. But, I suppose that would be like falling asleep on your AP Biology book hoping to soak up all it's knowledge. It didn't work in High School or College, and now I know it doesn't work in my living room either. Ciao!
