Dir. Luchino Visconti (1965).
Luchinos valiant, wildly operatic, and fascinating attempt to fashion a modern Greek tragedy concerns the (possibly) incestuous children of a Jewish father (seemingly) betrayed by their mother during World War II. Claudia Cardinale is grim, gorgeous, and miscast in the title role.
