Martin Scorsese Presents a Film Foundation and Cineteca di Bologna 4K Restoration

“Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece can be experienced once again in all its fearsome beauty and power.”— Martin Scorsese

“A masterpiece…a film of extraordinary range and ambition.” — Dave Kehr

Looking for opportunity, five brothers move north with their mother to Milan. There, Simone and Rocco find fame, in the boxing ring, and love, in the same woman—Nadia. Jealousy mounts, blood is shed, and a striving family faces self-destruction in this incisive, sensuous, emotionally bruising masterwork from director Luchino Visconti (The Leopard, Senso).

With an operatic Nino Rota score and Giuseppe Rotunno’s glimmering, on-location cinematography, Rocco and His Brothers “represents the artistic apotheosis of Italian neorealism,” says A.O. Scott of The New York Times. Drawing from Dostoevsky and Thomas Mann, Visconti arranges his signature themes—modernity, class tension, familial discord—across an epic canvas that directly influenced later Italian-American sagas by Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese. Alain Delon, Annie Girardot, Renato Salvatori, and Claudia Cardinale lead the cast of gorgeous unknowns who rose to stardom in the wake of this film’s bow at the 1960 Venice Film Festival, where it was greeted with scandal and won the Special Jury Prize.

Painstakingly restored in 4K by the Film Foundation and the Cineteca di Bologna, Rocco and His Brothers has never looked or sounded so pristine. Praised by Scorsese as “one of the most sumptuous black-and-white pictures,” Rocco’s baroque, impassioned majesty can once again be experienced as its filmmakers intended.

 An Explanation of Home, Classroom, and Public Performance Rights

Individuals and non-profit institutions purchasing at the DVD, DVD-R, or Blu-ray rate — or streaming at published rental and sales prices — are authorized to use the film only for private home screening and legitimate classroom showing (a regularly scheduled class with an instructor present), per the United States Copyright Law. You can learn more about the distinction between classroom and public performance screenings here.

 

US and Canadian nonprofit educational institutions that wish to show a film publicly outside of a scheduled class need to purchase DVDs, DVD-Rs, and Blu-rays at the institutional rate — which grants 3-year in-house streaming rights and an on-site public performance license. This in-house streaming license is for a term of three years from the date of purchase and grants the purchasing institution the right to stream over a single secure server with a password-protected connection. Streaming access must be strictly limited to currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff. Streaming rights extensions can be negotiated with Milestone after the initial three-year term has lapsed. Milestone retains the right to terminate this agreement at any time. No broadcast, Internet or other rights are granted or implied.These rights are for on-site use only per the license agreement. For more information on

US and Canadian nonprofit educational institutions that wish to screen a DVD, DVD-R, or Blu-ray they already own in an open showing must purchase a public performance license. For more information, please email amy@milestonefilms.com. 

The purchase of DVDs, DVD-Rs, and Blu-rays at the institutional rate by anyone outside of a North American non-profit educational institution does not grant rights for public performance or streaming.

Any continuous or loop screenings as part of a museum exhibition must also be licensed separately. Inquiries must be negotiated directly with Milestone by emailing amy@milestonefilms.com
