Our November – December mini season is dedicated to Helmut Berger, one of Austria’s most notorious international screen stars of the 1960s & ’70s. Beautiful and demonic, glamorous and tragic at the same time, Berger has starred alongside Elizabeth Taylor, Burt Lancaster, Michael Caine and Romy Schneider. He has been cast and directed by Luchino Visconti, Francis Ford Coppola and Andy Warhol to name a few. While his acting career includes more than 50 films to date, our mini season will focus on his iconic body of work from the 1970s
We begin the season with a memorable adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. Helmut Berger stars as the dandy who sells his soul for eternal youth.
UK, 1970, 93 mins, English, directed by Massimo Dallamano
