La terra trema
Dir. Luchino Visconti
Italy 1948 | Black & white | 150 mins | Cert U | Drama
Cast: Maria Micale, Sebastiano Valastro
An epic account of a Sicilian fishing community and the disasters encountered by a family who lose their boat in a storm. Although acted by non-professionals and avowedly Marxist, Visconti’s inherent romanticism wins through in the monumental beauty of the images and operatic handling of character.
