One of Luchino Visconti's most ambitious works. Based on the acclaimed novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. In the 1860s, a dying aristocracy struggles to maintain itself against a harsh Sicilian landscape. The film traces with a slow and deliberate rhythm the waning of the noble home of the Prince of Salina and the corresponding rise to eminence of the wealthy peasant Don Calogero Sedara.
