Visconti’s last great film is a melodrama with a typically understated power, in which a man who involves himself with casual affairs leaves his wife for his latest mistress, but wants her back when she becomes pregnant by another man. Typical of Marxist aristocrat Visconti, it’s luscious in setting, colour and decor, but it has a piercing sting in its tail.
