Tullio Hermil, a wealthy Italian aristocrat, is bored with his wife Giuliana and finds his mistresses more exciting until he learns his wife is having an affair which rekindles his ardour for her. The drama unfolds with tragic consequences as the characters go about their business with seeming elegance and restraint. D'Annunzio captures the decadent aristocatic world of fin-de-siecle Italy perfectly.
L'Innocente, filmed in 1976, is one of Luchino Visconti's finest films, finished shortly before he died.
