The “Modern Classics” sub-section in “Panorama,” featuring recently recovered or restored film material, offers a rich, diverse line-up of great films from the—big and small—history of 20th-century cinema. Among them, Metrópolis by Fritz Lang or The Bowler and the Bunnet, the only film Sean Connery directed in his life. And also Il gattopardo (photo), a masterpiece by the Italian Luchino Visconti starring Burt Lancaster, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale, dating from 1963, which will be screened in 35mm just as it was premiered in Cannes 2010 this Tuesday 12, 7.00 pm at Hoyts 4. Other screenings are on Wednesday 13, 6.30 pm and Sunday 17, 9.00 pm at Atlas Santa Fe 1.

Considered one of the greatest films of the sixties (Visconti won the Golden Palm at Cannes 1963), the movie portrays the decline of the Italian aristocracy with the rise of the bourgeoisie, which would later strengthen capitalism during the 20th century. It gave history the maxim “everything must change so that nothing changes,” and an extraordinary visual setting aided by Giuseppe Rotunno’s cinematography, Mario Garbuglia’s set design, Piero Tosi’s costume design (he was nominated for an Oscar in that year) and the music by master of masters Nino Rota.
