  • Tis ;Pity She's a Whore

Enter Giovanni with a heart upon his dagger.

Annabella, the beauty of Parma, does not lack admirers, but one of them society will surely view with disgust – her own brother, Giovanni. When he confesses to her his infatuation, Giovanni begs her to kill him, but so far from doing so, she embraces him as a lover. What chance has their incestuous love in a hostile world? What tragic chaos will follow?

Compassionate and disturbing, John Ford’s great story of doomed love – told in scenes that combine intense reflection with explosive violence – enters the most challenging moral territory of all.
