Preview- The Damned (Criterion Collection UK Only Bluray)

The most savagely subversive film by the great iconoclast Luchino Visconti portrays Fascism’s power to utterly corrupt

The most savagely subversive film by the iconoclastic auteur LUCHINO VISCONTI (The Leopard) employs the mechanics of deliriously stylized melodrama to portray Fascism’s total corruption of the soul. In the wake of Adolf H’s ascent to power, the wealthy industrialist von Essenbeck family and their associates—including the scheming social climber Friedrich (The Night Porter’s DIRK BOGARDE), the matriarch Sophie (Winter Light’s INGRID THULIN), and the perversely cruel heir Martin (The Godfather: Part III’s HELMUT BERGER, memorably donning Dietrich-like drag in his breakthrough role)—descend into a self-destructive spiral of decadence, greed, perversion, and all-consuming hatred as they vie for power, over the family business and over one another. The heightened performances and Visconti’s luridly expressionistic use of Technicolor conjure a garish world of decaying opulence in which one family’s downfall comes to stand for the moral rot of a nation.

Special Features:

  • New 2K digital restoration by the Cineteca di Bologna and Institut Lumière
  • Alternate Italian-language soundtrack
  • Interview from 1970 with director Luchino Visconti about the film
  • Archival interviews with actors Helmut Berger, Ingrid Thulin, and Charlotte Rampling
  • Visconti: Man of Two Worlds, a 1969 behind-the scenes documentary
  • And more!
