Gabriele D’Annunzio wrote L’innocente in the late 1800’s.
In 1972 it was made into an Italian feature length movie, which has now been digitally restored.
The story gives us an inside look at love and the aristocracy all those years ago and, also, a step back in time to European film making of the 1970’s.
Elements of the movie are definitely from a long time ago in another part of the world.
However, it is also clear how many similarities there are between the people of today and the characters in the film.
Some things remain the same over the centuries.
The film is in Italian, but English subtitles are available.
It isn’t rated, but I’d recommend it for adults and not children.
Release Date July 14th, 2020
Gabrielle d’Annunzio’s passionate novel is brought to life in the final masterpiece from acclaimed director Luchino Visconti.

He neglects her for his more exciting mistress, the wealthy widow Countess Teresa Raffo.
