“Everything must change for everything to remain the same.” Visconti’s sweeping, breathtaking epic– perennially ranked as one of the best films of all time– recreates with nostalgia, drama, and opulence, the tumultuous Italy of the 1860s.  Burt Lancaster stars as the aging prince watching his culture and fortune wane in the face of a new generation, embodied by his upstart nephew (Alain Delon) and his beautiful fiancee (Claudia Cardinale).
