Editor's Note
Keeping in step with the themes of THE DAMNED and DEATH IN VENICE, Luchino Visconti's final entry in his "German Trilogy" further explores issues of complicated and repressed sexuality. A lush, atmospheric dramatization of a tormented Bavarian king's brief but colorful reign, LUDWIG traces the ruler's loves for Elisabeth of Austria (his cousin) and composer Richard Wagner, culminating with his final descent into madness.
