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.

Acclaimed director Luchino Visconti's (DEATH IN VENICE) powerful epic is one of the most internationally adored Italian films in history. The story of a poor family torn apart by lust and greed, ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS stars the gorgeous French actor Alain Delon as Rocco, a soft-spoken, idealistic young man who must deal with turmoil and competition when he and his 3 brothers set out to Milan in an attempt to make a fortune. The recipient of several prestigious awards, Visconti's drama is a highly affecting story of passion, greed, and family.
