Trivia

Director Luchino Visconti intended the title roles to be played by Alain Delon and Romy Schneider. But Delon was under long-term contract, and the $1,000,000 that his producers wanted to release him was considered too much; and Schneider was pregnant at the time, so Visconti had to work with Laura Antonelli, and the little-known Giancarlo Giannini.

Too languid.
1 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

After this film is over, you'll probably feel that you've just seen a quality movie for serious movie-goers. But while you're watching it, you may find yourself thinking than it needed a shot of adrenalin. It's an elegant and insightful drama, but very languidly paced. Apparently, everybody involved with it tried to give the (rather soapy) material more weight than it could hold, so almost everything - direction, acting, dialogue rhythms - seems kind of overdeliberate. Great last shot, though. (**1/2)
