Secondo amore

26 april

(All That Heaven Allows, Usa 1955) directed by Douglas Sirk, starring Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman, colour, duration: 89 min., DCP original version with Italian subtitles

A widow falls in love with her gardener, who is ten years younger than her, but she has to fight against both her children’s and friends’ prejudices and her own fears. In one of the boldest love stories ever brought to the screen, this exploration of class conflict was to prompt Fassbinder himself to produce a remake.
