LE NOTTI BIANCHE

Luchino Visconti: Maleficent Obsession
(NR) Italy/France – 1 hr 37 min – with subtitles  
1957 · d. Luchino Visconti
Official Site · Reviews
Starring Marcello Mastroianni, Maria Schell, Jean Marais

Mario (Marcello Mastroianni) meets Natalia (Maria Schell) weeping by a canal bridge, waiting for a lover (Jean Marais) who never arrives. Romance blossoms as they wander through the night—but is it a true connection or an impossible fantasy? Adapting Dostoevsky’s “White Nights,” Visconti transforms the sleeping city into a dreamlike landscape of love and longing.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Rapture and Rebellion: The Cinema of Luchino Visconti, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
