Rocco and His Brothers


Rocco e i suoi fratelli (English: Rocco and His Brothers) is a 1960 Italian film directed by Luchino Visconti, inspired by an episode from the novel Il ponte della Ghisolfa by Giovanni Testori. Starring Alain Delon, Renato Salvatori, Annie Girardot, and Claudia Cardinale.

Set in Milan, it tells the story of an immigrant family from the South and its disintegration in the society of the industrial North. The title is a combination of Thomas Mann’s Joseph and his Brothers and the name of Rocco Scotellaro, an Italian poet who described the feelings of the peasants of southern Italy.
