Luchino Visconti directs this opulent costume drama. From his glittering coronation in 1864 as King of Bavaria to his mysterious death in 1886, Ludwig II epitomised the doomed 19th century romantic hero. Tormented by an unrequited love for his cousin, obsessed with the music of Wagner, Ludwig retreated more and more into a fantasy world as his neglect of state affairs increased. Helmut Berger stars as the eccentric monarch and Trevor Howard as composer Richard Wagner.
