Luchino Visconti / IT, FR, 1963 / 185 min.
Incredible but true: on Sunday evening 9 June the Italian diva Claudia Cardinale, an icon of the cinema of the ‘60s and ‘70s and still going strong, will visit Eye to attend a gala night in her honour. Cardinale will be interviewed about her work on the occasion of the second edition of the Italian film week ‘Fare Cinema’. Followed by the screening of Visconti’s The Leopard, the great classic with stunning performances by Cardinale, Burt Lancaster and Alain Delon.
The film has been restored several times and is screened at Eye in the original length of 205 minutes, with English subtitles.
