"Brilliant and overwhelming… Among the classics of the screen."-The New York Times

In sweeping epic style, the award-winning Rocco & His Brothers tells the story of four poor Italian brothers and their mother who leave their country home and move to bustling Milan with hopes of improving their bitter fortune.The family is thrown into chaos when two of the brothers are torn apart by their love for the same woman and their struggles to succeed in a viciously competitive world.French heartthrob Alain Delon is the gentle, idealistic Rocco, and Italian movie star Renato Salvatori is the undisciplined, savagely jealous Simone.French actress Annie Girardot achieved stardom with her role as the prostitute who grows to hate Simone for his possessiveness and falls in love with Rocco.

Internationally renowned director Luchino Visconti (Senso, The Leopard, Death in Venice) combined keenly realistic observations and strong passions to create one of his most satisfying and deeply affecting films.Cut by Italian censors because of its violence, this restored, unedited version presents the film in all its richness, demonstrating why it is a modern classic.
