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.

upper class romance
16 November 2006 | by (Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico) – See all my reviews

A wealthy and arrogant aristocrat openly has an affair with another woman, thus driving his wife to start her own affair with a writer that leads to a pregnancy and baby. Giancarlo Giannini is magnificent in a role that instills in the viewer zero sympathy and outright hostility. The film heads into what can only be described as one of the most memorably tragic conclusions since Shakespeare, and is also one of the most beautifully filmed and costumed movies ever, with sumptuous deep red wallpapered rooms with velvet curtains. Wealth and position can cut both ways, with Giannini's role going down into a dark and bankrupt morality that in the end is like a swamp.
