Summary
"Bearing all the hallmarks of Herzog's eccentric and original talent, this atmospheric documentary tells the chilling story of the sixteenth-century composer Don Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa, one embracing sexual excess, ghastly murder and obsession. Filmed on location in Italy, it explores both his musical legacy and the extraordinary influence his tormented life has continued to exert on some of those whose lives have crossed his past"--Container
