Rocco and his Brothers (1961) Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Eureka Entertainment to release Luchino Visconti's ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS, the melodramatic 1960 masterpiece with an extraordinary cast, on Blu-ray for the first time in the world on 14 March 2016 From Luchino Visconti the master director of such classics as La terra trema, Bellissima, and The Leopard comes this epic study of family, sex, and betrayal. Alongside Fellini's La dolce vita and Antonioni's L'avventura, Visconti's Rocco and His Brothers ushered Italian cinema into a new era, one unafraid to confront head-on the hypocrisies of the ruling class, the squalor... in urban living, and the collision between generations. When a tight-knit family moves from Italy's rural south to metropolitan Milan, the new possibilities - and threats - present in their fresh surroundings have alarming, unforeseen consequences. Operatically weaving the five brothers' stories across a vast canvas, with an extraordinary cast including Alain Delon, Annie Girardot and Claudia Cardinale, Rocco and His Brothers stands as one of the most majestic and influential works of its era. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present one of Visconti's most revered films for the first time in the world on Blu-ray.

Luchino Visconti co-writes and directs this classic Italian crime drama. After the death of her husband, Rosario (Katina Paxinou) and her five sons move from the poor rural south of Italy to the prosperous northern city of Milan in an effort to improve their lives. However, despite a promising start, their hopes for the future prove futile and when the good-natured Rocco (Alain Delon) falls out with his brutal older brother Simone (Renato Salvatori), over his prostitute girlfriend Nadia (Annie Girardot), a tragic climax appears unavoidable.
