2006 – THE PRINCE OF SALINA’S DREAM: THE LAST LEOPARD

  • Share

DESCRIZIONE / details

The story tells the saga of the Salina’s, an aristocratic family who live suspended between memory and living, who alternate between flashes from a dazzling past to bourgeois drama, profound reflections on time, in particular one’s own, and reality, all through the melancholic and proud viewpoint of Fabrizio Corbera, the last Leopard. A complex man, characterized by deep interior conflicts, who appears calm but whose thoughts reveal reflections alien to the people who surround him, and harrowing considerations on human nature.

Only his beloved nephew, Tancredi, perceives his troubled soul, the only one in which the man-leopard sees himself, as he watches the end of an era. Tancredi is good-looking, enthusiastic and a reckless fellow. He will convince Fabrizio to allow him to marry Angelica, the daughter of the parvenu Don Calogero Sedara. In the halls of the summer residence called Donnafugata, we will witness the descendant parable of the Leopard’s existence, a journey into the doubts of a man, a great provoker and sublime victim, right until the epilogue of his life.
