EXTRAS DVDs OF THE MONTH

THE LEOPARD Directed by Luchino Visconti Starring: Burt Lancaster, Alain Delon, Claudia Cardinale

Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece is now available on DVD for the first time. Featuring the complete and uncut version of the film, with fully restored picture and sound, this stunning high definition digital transfer from the film’s original 70mm negative materials, overseen by the film’s director of photography Giuseppe Rounno, is presented here in its original widescreen aspect ratio. This is a gorgeous evocation of an era – beautifully photographed, designed and costumed, with a rousing score by Nino Rota – glitters with superb set pieces, culminating in the climatic 45-minute ballroom section where we can see and feel a society in transition. Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival, 1963 “One of the films I live by”.— Martin Scorsese
