As part of the series Devil in the Garden: The Films of Luchino Visconti, Austin Film Society will present Rocco and His Brothers.Visconti depicts the twin parallels of existence in the characters of brothers Rocco (Alain Delon) and Simone (Renato Salvatori). The affability and sweetness inherent in Rocco is offset by the cold, tortured soul of Simone as they, along with their three other brothers, immigrate from rural Lucania and attempt to start a new life in Milan. Temperamentally romantic and mercurial, the film offers such a vast world-weary panorama that one swaggers away from the experience supremely self-assured that they have uncovered the secret of life.
