Ludwig

Luchino Visconti / IT, FR, DE, 1972 / 238 min.

Visconti unpicks the emotional life of King Ludwig II of Bavaria (Helmut Berger). Ludwig is grappling with his sexual identity, loses himself in Richard Wagner’s dream world and has saccharine, Baroque castles built so he can find solace in beauty.

poster Ludwig (Luchino Visconti, IT/FR/DE 1972)
Ludwig II is about an eccentric king who puts art at the heart of his politics, with disastrous results.
