This review is from: The Leopard  [DVD] (DVD)
The Leopard is one of my top ten books of all time. Read and reread; I am incapable of describing the beauty of the language. I only realized recently that a film had been made of the book. I tried but I could not resist watching it. I have never known a film do a book justice the way this film has. The film has battle scenes that are only referred to in the book but that does not detract from the fact that the film has captured the haunting beauty of Scicily as described by Tomasi. It also describs, almost without words, the heavy sadness of the Prince who realizes his way of life is coming to an end.
