This epic melodrama from director Luchino Visconti helped to make an international star of French actor Alain Delon, cast as one of five sons of a poor rural Italian family whose fortunes fall even farther after a move to Milan. The screenplay was a collaboration between Visconti and four other writers including Suso Cecchi D’Amico—one of the first female screenwriters in Italian cinema and a key figure in the neorealist movement; her remarkable body of work includes such classics as Bicycle Thieves (1948), Big Deal on Madonna Street (1958), and The Leopard (1963).
