Dumas's story, transformed into Verdi's hauntingly beautiful opera, gains yet another dimension as cinema by Zeffirelli. The overture begins and we are drawn into the tragedy - Violetta is alone and dying, while bailiffs empty her once magnificent salon. Brilliant depictions of that lost world through flashbacks further intensify the poignancy of the love story as it winds to its moving end.
BAFTA Awards 1984: 'Best Production Design/Art Direction' and 'Best Costume Design'
