Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival, Luchino Visconti's The Leopard is an epic of the grandest proportions. Beautifully photographed, designed and costumed, with a superb score by Nino Rota, the film recreates the tumultuous years of Italy's Risorgimento, when the aristocracy's rule was passed to a unified, democratic middle-class. Starring Burt Lancaster, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale, The Leopard is a masterful adaptation of Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's novel recounting the waning fortunes of the Sicilian nobility and is widely recognised as one of cinema's true masterpieces.
