Burt Lancaster, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale star in Luchino Visconti's epic story of the fortunes which befall one aristocratic family during the 1860s, at the time of the unification of Italy. Prince Fabrizio Salina (Lancaster) realises that times are changing when his war-hero nephew Tancredi (Delon) starts courting Angelica (Cardinale), the beautiful daughter of the town's middle-class mayor. When asked to grant his approval for their marriage, he agrees, even though it confirms everything he dreads and despises about the rise of the bourgeoisie.

The celebrated ball sequence, which lasts for much of the film's last quarter, is often credited as one of the most oppulent scenes in cinema history. The film was digitally restored in 2010 and it took over 12,000 hours of manual restoration to remove years of dirt and audio pollution.

Mrs Amanda Creese - 13/11/2020

I recently read the Leopard and loved the book. It's evocations of time and place are wonderfully depicted and I fell a little in love with the Price. I knew there was a film of the Leopard available but your site was the only place that I could track it down. It is of its time.. the soundtrack isn't great but as a director Visconti paints a beautiful picture of the time and 19th C Sicily. It detracts from the book in that the battles fought be Garabaldi are depicted, not just refered to as they are in the book but it makes for a more coherent narrative for a film. The ballroom scenes at the end ate wonderful and Viscont gives the action 'space' in that some scenes are just inciidental and don't necessarily drive the narrative. I'm looking for an opportunity to see it on a larger screen than I have as it will bring details to the fore. It is a beautiful film and will become one of my go tos on a wet weekend on the sofa.

Your delivery and service was great and package received in good time and packed well. Thanks
