Film-making at it's best! A must see for all beings!
This has to be one of my all time old favorite Romantic Motion Picture.
Visconti brings about Magic and beauty onscreen making every shot a glamour in experience!
There are so many great moments in Senso that it will take you ages before this Picture wears out in your memory.
Besides the fact that Visconti is one of the great Film-makers of all times it has to be said that this Director simply had a feel about shots to form a scene to imprint that exact emotion or feeling that was intended by him. He always knew to capture and captivate the viewer and bring about that special bond which nowadays we have lost with contemporary Motion Pictures!
For all out there whom enjoy the Art of Film-making, for all whom cherish good Film-making, go fetch "Senso"! It's an experience not to forget!
Senso is about the magic which comes about when a Picture finds it's way through the Projector unto the White screen! It's an experience rarely seen but so is this Art which is only understood by a handful of Film-makers!
Luchino Visconti, I thank you for this venture and understanding of the greatest Art form in this Universe!
