Magnifica ossessione - repeat

19 april

(Magnificent Obsession, Usa 1954) directed by Douglas Sirk, starring Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman, colour, duration: 108 min., DCP original version with Italian subtitles

One of arrogant young millionnaire Bob’s escapades results in the death of a doctor. His redemption begins when he falls in love with the doctor’s widow. With his bold formal approach, Sirk turns a potentially kitsch and unlikely story into an irresistible, heartrending melodrama.
