Venezia, spring of 1866, in the last days of the Austrian occupation. A performance of Il Trovatore ends up in confusion due to an anti-Austrian demonstration, organised by Count Ussoni. His cousin Countess Serpieri falls in love with vile Austrian Lieutenant Franz Mahler, but the times are changing.Written by

This beautifully photographed romance features a great performance by Alida Valli, and Farley Granger in the greatest role of his career. Alida Valli plays a love starved married woman who falls passionately in love with deserter Granger. Like all of Visconti's films, it's emotionally disturbing, but totally superb.
