a feature film by Luchino Visconti (The Leopard, Rocco and His Brothers, Death in Venice, The Damned, Bellissima)
with Marcello Mastroianni (La Dolce Vita, 81/2, The Night, A Special Day, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow), Maria Schell (Superman, Gervaise), Jean Marais (Orpheus, Fantomas, Stealing Beauty)

Marcello Mastroianni, as a lonely city transplant clerk. Maria Schell, as a sheltered girl haunted by a lover's promise, night after night she awaits for the return of her lover.
They meet by chance on a canal bridge and begin a tentative romance that quickly entangles them in a web of longing and self-delusion.

Luchino Visconti's LE NOTTI BIANCHE, an exquisite adaptation of Dostoyevsky's "White Nights”, translates this romantic, shattering tale of two restless souls into a ravishing black-and-white dream.
