Ludwig (1973)

Luchino Visconti directs Helmut Berger, Romy Schneider and Silvana Mangano in this biopic about the life and death of King Ludwig II of Bavaria, an eccentric ruler eventually dethroned for his tastes and passions.

Grand, decadent, often ornately beautiful but deathly boring. Goes on forever, interminably, with very rare flashes of tangible drama.
