A young Italian woman, along with her American husband, returns to her hometown for a ceremony honoring her late father, a Jewish scientist killed by the Nazis during the war. The sensible husband is stunned by the highly emotional nature of her family—as many family secrets come to light.

MUBI's take

Starring Claudia Cardinale at the height of her fame, Luchino Visconti’s tenebrous melodrama took the Golden Lion at Venice in 1965. Aristocratic pretension crumbles under unbridled passion in this third collaboration between the actor and auteur, an inspired reinvention of the Electra myth.
