Romy,Sissi,Cristiana by Luchino Visconti


LUDWIG film by Luchino Visconti.

Director: Luchino Visconti With: Helmut Berger, Romy Schneider, Silvana Mangano, Umberto Orsini Genre: Biography Production: Italy / Germany / France Year: 1973 Length: 173 min. Plot: 1864, Ludwig von Wittelbach (Helmut Berger) is crowned king of Bavaria. Problematic as eccentric personality, much more interested in art than politics, especially the young king finds consolation in the strong spiritual passion that binds him to her cousin Elizabeth (Romy Schneider) and in the music of Richard Wagner. For this invites the famous musician in Bavaria (Trevor Howard) with his mistress Cosima von Bulov (Silvana Mangano), financing it conspicuously and dissipating huge sums for performances of his works, but is then forced to send him away for the discontent that has been created a bit 'anywhere. Over the years, Ludwig cares less about politics - beginning with the Austro-Prussian War he sees his younger brother Otto (John Moulder Brown) return unbalanced - to isolate themselves in the art world and in the castles he had built. The only points of reference are Elisabeth and Colonel Durkheim (Helmut Griem). Despite being attracted to men Ludwig decides to marry Sophie (Sonia Petrova)'s sister Elisabeth, and then, however, between the dismay of all, to give up the marriage. In the meantime becomes a lover of his valet Hornig (Marc Porel). Although pressure from political duties - these are the years in which you are forming the German Confederation - Ludwig, prematurely aged, spends his days in the castles, indulging in orgies with the squires. In 1866 he was deposed by the State Council, after a psychiatric evaluation of mental illness. On the night of June 13 was found drowned in the waters of Lake Starnberg with Dr. Gudden. For production purposes, Ludwig was first released in a shortened version (173 minutes long anyway ...), after the death of the director some friends have bought the rights and have created a version for much longer, according to a fairly reliable mounting. The current duration of four hours ago assume the film a thick bodied and a narrative rhythm more marked, in a series of blocks. The life of the last King of Bavaria is reconstructed through the testimonies of people close to him that evoke the most significant moments, bringing out clearly his tragic isolation and the gradual maturing of his inevitable fate. The whole story is focused on Ludwig, yet another figure defeated Film Visconti, through which comes out of emptiness (since his coronation, which is an empty ceremonial) of a power and then in the twilight of a class, the aristocracy, unable to keep up with a society changed. The unhappy king is the spokesman of exasperated romantic culture that does not accept the pragmatism of a society based on material goods and that you feel powerless in its historical function, so, despite the presence of Elisabeth and Durkheim, the only characters that able to have a conversation with him, he isolates himself more and more contemptuously in his fabulous castles, vagheggiando an impossible dream, a world made up only of poetry and utopias unglued from reality. The decadence of Ludwig - aestheticism carried to excess, loneliness, the vocation to death, delusions of grandeur - is a crucial prop in homosexuality, which enhances even more his departure from the norm. Obliged by reasons of state to marry, Ludwig discovers in himself the attraction to men, first with hesitation (in the episode of the squire caught bathing), then with growing acceptance, in a gradual crescendo spying naked torso Hornig of the relationship with him, the wild orgies with the grooms. Helmut Berger, in a movie all play beautifully reconstruct the atmosphere of this historic moment, fully describe the physical and mental deterioration of the king and his mind-boggling that can only arrive to death.
