Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti ( Visual )
15 editions published between 1960 and 2001 in 5 languages and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rocco chronicles the tensions within a southern family - a mother and her five sons - who have moved to a northern Italian city. The drama unfolds in a series of episodes merging into each other in which each of the five sons moves in turn to occupy the centre of the stage. Nowell-Smith suggests that each brother, in a sense, represents a certain kind of solution to the problems faced by a southern immigrant family in this historical moment (the 1950s in Milan) yet they are not typical

This historical drama by Mario Monicelli is a beautiful and moving ode to the power of the people, brimming with humor and honesty

2 editions published in 2003 in Multiple languages and Italian and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Laced with interviews and classic clips, the film literally retraces Fellini's footsteps dramatizing Fellini's vision and the same world minus that vision. What results is no mere portrait, but an energetic, philosophical inquiry

The Bible in the beginning ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in English and German and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the greatest pieces of footage in cinema has Huson standing as Noah to watch the animal parade leaving the Ark. Two shots alone give the measure of the picture, the slow dolly-in POV as Eve approaches the tree, and the long take on Cain which begins as a high crane shot and ends as a low up-angle. The last shot, an extreme long shot of Abraham and Isaac dancing together after the sacrifice of the ram, is a cinematic shorthand way of indicating the last verse of the O.T. It helps to know the stories to be able to understand Huston's directing genius. Huston created a new dispesation of flim grammar which has been much copied

The leopard Il gattopardo ( Visual )
8 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in the 1860s during the years of the Risorgimento - the making of modern Italy - which saw the emergence of the bourqeoisie at the expense of the landed aristocracy. Visconti clearly identified with Don Fabrizio ('the Leopard'), the ageing patriarch of an aristocratic Sicilian family. He is the first to understand the inevitability of the changes. 'If everything is to remain the same, everything must change' is the cynical observation of Don Fabrizio's young nephew, Tancredi, who adjusts to the new order in a manner impossible for Fabrizio. Lampedusa's novel, steeped in lethargy and inertia, was filmed by Visconti in the enervating Sicilian summer. The film culminates in the ball scene which stands as a kind of metaphor for transformiso - the emergence of a new order as reactionary as the old
