Is this the first time a movie was picked that I didn't vote for?

I've seen it over four years ago. Don't really remember it. Judging on my rating, I wasn't impressed back then. 6/10

This is the first time that a film has appeared that you didn't either nominate or actually voted for to be in the 500<400. You did not nominate Flicka och hyacinter (1950) or The Silent Partner (1978), but you did vote for them to be in the 500<400.

I enjoyed this film. It's a typical film that can be expected from Luchino Visconti (extravagant sets and a 2 hour plus runtime) and Giancarlo Giannini (playing the lead role as a ladies' man/womanizer). The first half moved too slow for my liking and I kept waiting for some climax or plot twist to move the story forward. Luckily, I didn't have any problem with the pacing for the second half of the film. As an aside, I might have liked the film less if I didn't find Giancarlo Giannini attractive in this because there were numerous close ups of his face that it could have been annoying for others if they don't feel the same way :lol: Almost every shot in this film was a close up of a face, room with glamorous decor, room with people sitting for a show, or outside of a grand building. I don't have a problem with the direction style of this film, but it was rather repetitive. Overall, I still liked it. 7/10
