Format: Blu-ray
The Leopard is an Italian period film directed by Luchino Visconti, and released in 1963.
It centers around the Salinas, a family of aristocrats in southern Italy, during the Risorgimento (a civil movement that united the parts of Italy) in the mid-19th century.
The Prince of Salina, cast as Burt Lancaster, struggles with the fading power of his class and disapproves highly of the changes occurring in his society. Much of the film focuses on the Prince's internal struggle, as he labors to come to grips with the radical changes in his ancient world.
The secondary characters include the coupling of the Prince's nephew, the dashing Tancredi, and the daughter of the mayor of Donnafugata (the location of the Prince's summer resort), the beautiful Angelica. Their relationship is often explored in the film - its effects on the rest of the family and the Prince in particular.

The Leopard is an opulent masterpiece - it paints a rich, vibrant portrait of aristocratic life in Italy during the period, and is in equal parts a historical film, a political film, and a drama.
The casting is excellent - Burt Lancaster is outstanding as Prince Fabrizio; Alain Delon as Tancredi and Claudia Cardinale as Angelica stand out as well. All the minor characters are portrayed well by their actors.

Each scene is packed with detail - The Leopard was a costly film, and it shows. Everything looks genuinely authentic - the furnishings, the food, the decorations are all marvelous. The Leopard is perhaps one of the most visually rich films I have ever seen. Eye candy at it's finest.

In terms of the release itself, Criterion has done a bang-up job as usual. The disks are housed in a beautifully illustrated digipack, with full-color stills from the movie.

Format: DVD
Adapted from a novella by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, The Leopard paints a vivid picture of the Italian aristocracy falling from grace and the middle class revolting to form a more democratic Italy on an epic canvas. Caught up in this class revolution is an affluent family led by the Prince of Salina, Don Fabrizio Corbera (Burt Lancaster). He recognizes that he is part of an obsolete generation and that his young nephew, Tancredi Falconeri (Alain Delon), and his beautiful fiancée, Angelica Sedara (Claudia Cardinale), represent the new order.
The first DVD features an audio commentary by film scholar Peter Cowie. He provides the backstory to Visconti's career leading up to The Leopard. Cowie talks at length about the film in relation to its source material. This is a strong, informative track that is an excellent introduction to the cinema of Visconti.
The second DVD starts off with a fantastic, hour-long documentary, entitled "A Dying Breed: The Making of the Leopard," that was created especially for the DVD. There are interviews with most of the surviving cast and crew, including Claudia Cardinale and the film's screenwriters.
This is an excellent look at The Leopard from the origins of the novel to the film's botched U.S. version that truncated Visconti's vision and was re-dubbed with English-speaking actors.
There is also a "Goffredo Lombardo Interview" with the producer of The Leopard.
"The History of Risorgimento" examines the real historical figures and the times they lived in with the professor of Italian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Millicent Marcus. This is a really good primer for anyone who is unfamiliar with this particular period of Italian history.

Format: DVD
First of all we must separate Visconti's Il Gattopardo, all the 225 minutes of it, from the mess recut, recolored, re-dubbed by 20th Century Fox and distributed as a sort of Burt Lancaster vehicle.
I speak of the original.
Under Count Lucchino Visconti di Modrone's direction and with the aid of 263 technicians, 4300 candles, 500 pairs of white gloves, 5113 costumes, real food, wine, 6 tailors with 56 seamsters, a laundry service, 4 bootmakers and 644 meters of track on which three cameras rolled, Burt Lancaster, Rina Morelli, Alain Delon, Claudia Cardinale and other magnificent actors transport us to a time of revolutonary change, destruction and renewal in Sicily, 1860.
Neither opulence nor poverty become so obtrusive that we forget what is going on with the Prince of Salina. The sets are magnificent: the villa at San Lorenzo is in real life Villa Boscogrande and the palazzo of the Princes Ponteleone where the great 44 1/2 minute ballroom scene takes place is none other than Palazzo Gangi in Palermo.
Amid all this splendor Prince Salina, the Leopard, senses the end of his world, of his own class. Actually he contributes to it by encouraging his penniless but charming nephew Tancredi (Delon) to marry the vulgar but extremely rich and beautiful Angelica, daughter of Calogero Sedara, one of the "up and coming" men of the post revolutionary world, a resident of the Prince's fief of Donnafugatta.
The Prince tries to make sense of this new world but the events leave a bitter taste in his mouth.
