Reviews

Luchino Visconti directs this art-house classic, set in 19th Century Italy. Venetian Countess Lidia (Alida Valli) risks her marriage and social position for the love of the young Austrian officer Franz Mahler (Farley Granger). As the affair develops, however, it becomes clear that Franz may not have been worth the sacrifice.

This current issue of Senso is truncated as other reviewers have noted. However, what is equally unacceptable is the parlous state of the film stock used for this transfer to DVD. The Technicolor, in the original, was sumptuous, rich and saturated just as Visconti and the Technicolor consultants wanted. He was a wizard at giving his colour films a painterly quality that enhanced the story line in a seductive and thrilling manner. The eye was entranced, the cutting was impeccable and the whole mood evoked was the sum of many parts including the cinematography. This current DVD is faded with a colour consistency that is annoyingly haphazard and wavering. The cuts 'enhance' this travesty version of a masterly movie that is much loved by a host of frustrated devotees. We patiently await a complete restoration that will be a revelation to several generations who have not seen the original. They will have skimmed through pathetic reissues like this and will have wondered what the fuss is all about. The neglect and current abuse of this world heritage film is a scandal. This is the companion to Visconti's The Leopard. Both are concerned with the Risorgimento at different ends of Italy i.e. Venice under collapsing Austrian Rule in Senso and the twilight of the old order in the Sicily of The Leopard. An opportunity to view both of these films in restored versions has been lost. So, enjoy the BFI restoration of The Leopard and pray for a triumphant resurrection of Senso!

I bought the Italian Cristal 2 disc DVD version,( 2011 ) advertised with no english subtitles, but hoping that the bonus disc might have contained the American version that has an awful transfer to DVD on the 2007 release. This way, at least i would have a soundtrack in english. Sadly, it didn't. I don't understand a word of Italian, but the quality of the film, which is beautifully restored to glorious saturated colour, more than makes up. If you read up on the story line, then it's not actually that hard to follow the plot...and you get to learn a little Italian !!

Unfortunately, this is the same version available in Japan and Brazil; a few crucial scenes are missing (after a fire breaks out in the vicinity of the villa). No extras. What a shame!
