Algiers in 1935. Meursault, an office worker, buries his mother without displaying the least sentiment. The following day, he becomes friends with Marie, a young and pretty colleague, and then resumes his usual monotonous life until Raymond, a neighbour, disturbs it. As if overcome by a feeling of insensitiveness and indifference, Meursault refuses Marie's offer of marriage and, at work, refuses an offer of promotion. On the beach one Sunday he kills an Arab who seems to have been pestering him for several days.

Luchino Visconti

Born into a noble and wealthy family in Milan in 1906. He began his filmmaking career as an assistant director on Jean Renoir's Toni (1935) and Une partie de campagne (1936). With Gianni Puccini, Antonio Pietrangeli and Giuseppe De Santis he wrote the screenplay for his first film as director: Ossessione (Obsession, 1943), the first neorealist movie. In 1948, he wrote and directed La Terra trema (The Earth Trembles). Visconti continued working throughout the 1950s, although he veered away from the neorealist path with his 1954 film, Senso, shot in color. He returned to neorealism once more with Rocco e i suoi fratelli (Rocco and His Brothers, 1960), the story of southern Italians who migrate to Milan hoping to find financial stability. Throughout the 1960s, Visconti's films became more personal. Il Gattopardo (The Leopard, 1963), based on Lampedusa's novel about the decline of the Sicilian aristocracy at the time of the Risorgimento. With The Damned (1969), Visconti received a nomination for an Academy Award, for "Best Screenplay". Visconti's final film was The Innocent (1976), which has the recurring theme of infidelity and betrayal. He died in Rome in 1976.
