    Grandiose it may seems, there is not much to take away apart from the authentic depiction of King Ludwig's tragic life.

    An interesting story of a decadent mad king who was actually a liberace gay romantic romantic eccentric. Great acting and beautiful sets and costumes etc. But almost four hours is a bit too much and I was bored every now and then.

    Absolutely masterful. Visconti's passion towards the aristocracy and nobility of the 19th Century reaches its highest peak in a biographical epic plagued by castles and palaces, royal costumes, golden scenarios, rituals and ceremonies, literary references, art, theater, and even touches of lust and madness! What a sublime composition for the least appreciated decade of Italian cinema! Destinies colliding, ambitions exploding and meeting their doom, and Luchino behind this opera of sensations. Add to that one of the best male performances of the 70s, especially visibile in the 5th and final part (although I must point out the existentialist and macabre tone that fills the fourth part, which is my favorite). 99/100

    decadence! moustaches! rotten teeth! all-male lederhosen parties! long live visconti and his 3.5h long melodramas. i love the fact that in the last hour there is almost no dialogue, the story is told by the beautiful photography. and i was glad he included one of those sequences where everything seems like a ballet, like the first scene in 'the leopard': the scene where ludwig gets arrested is simply amazing.
