    Rocco and His Brothers

    ★★★★½

    It is quite often referred as operatic and it does fully live up to that description. Compacted with emotions, that burst out from time to time with all the unimaginable furry, it is a melodrama of the highest caliber and along the line Visconti's most accessible work, despite the devoting run time.

Isabelle Huppert is born to this kind of roles and as expected, she delivers, giving her maximum almost effortlessly. Some scenes won’t leave your head for days, but at the end of the day you will feel enriched for an unforgettable film experience.
