A superficial look at a great director

"The great Visconti ultimately deserves a better tribute than this video which looks as if it had been thrown together on short order for Italian television. There is precious little of the Maestro himself, and much too little of the films and in the end this documentary has been done with little imagination.
This might suffice as a biographical introduction to Visconti, but the viewer would be better off watching the films and reading one of a number of biographies and critical studies available on Amazon."
VERY INTERESTING AND FASCINATING...

"I SPENT A DELIGHTFUL HOUR WATCHING THIS DOCUMENTARY ABOUT LUCHIANO VISCONTI. I LEARNED THAT MR. VISCONTI "THE MAN" WAS AS GREAT AS THE DIRECTOR AND IT MADE ME WANT TO WATCH HIS MOVIES AGAIN. I DISCOVERED THAT HE WAS ALSO VERY RESPECTED AS A THEATER AND OPERA DIRECTOR... QUITE AN INTERESTING MAN... I WAS ALSO VERY PLEASED TO HEAR WHAT SOME OF MY FAVORITE ACTORS HAD TO SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH HIM (THE GREAT MASTROIANNI, GASSMAN, CLAUDIA CARDINALE, DELON...) IN SHORT: I AM GLAD I WATCHED THIS DOCUMENTARY!"
