The Leopard




The Leopard (ItalianIl Gattopardo) is a 1963 epic historical drama film directed and co-written by Luchino Visconti, based on Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa‘s 1958 novel of the same title.[5] Burt Lancaster stars as Don Fabrizio Corbera, an aging Sicilian nobleman caught up in the sociopolitical turmoil of the Risorgimento (Italian unification) during the mid-19th century, with Alain Delon as his opportunistic nephew Tancredi, and Claudia Cardinale as his goddaughter.

The Leopard won the Palme d’Or at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival,[7] . The film is now widely regarded as a classic and one of the greatest movies ever made.
