White Nights

(Le notti bianche, Luchino Visconti, 1957)

Set in the Tuscan city of Livorno, the Dostoyevsky adaptation White Nights stars Italian icon Marcello Mastroianni as a loner who meets and falls for a fragile woman (Maria Schell) seemingly spurned by a past love (Jean Marais). The bittersweet tale of young love and loss is distinguished by Giuseppe Rotunno’s atmospheric black-and-white cinematography and Visconti’s rapturous direction. (101 mins., 35mm)

Please note: Due to inclement weather, the Wexner Center for the Arts is closed on Wednesday, January 30, and the Wednesday screening of White Nights (1957) has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 2, at 4 PM.
