Marriage Italian Style - DVD Preview

Marriage, Italian Style

Preview by Jack Foley

CRITICALLY-acclaimed neorealist director Vittorio De Sica (Umberto D., Bicycle Thieves) examines the Italian marriage in a newly re-mastered and restored HD version of Marriage Italian Style, thanks to CultFilms, with a Blu-ray, DVD and digital release on July 10, 2017.

Marcello Mastroianni (Dolce Vita, Fellini’s 8 ½) plays Domenico, a businessman who is used to being in control until he meets former prostitute Filumena (Sophia Loren, Nine, Pret A Porter).

Sparks fly and she becomes both his mistress and the manager of his pastry shop. All is well until Domenico begins courting another, younger woman, and flaunts his new relationship in front of her…

Adapted from a stage play by Eduardo de Filippo, this Italian melodrama was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actress at the 1964 Oscars®, and won the Golden Globe® the same year for Best Foreign Film.

This release also features Vittorio D, a tribute to the multi-awarded maestro filmmaker De Sica, with contributions from Clint Eastwood, Woody Allen, Mike Leigh, and Ken Loach.

Marriage Italian Style is the coming together of De Sica’s neorealism and cinematographic elegance with Italy’s iconic film super-stars.
