TWO Women – aka La Ciociara – from celebrated director Vittorio De Sica (The Bicycle Thieves, Umberto D) is presented for the very first time on DVD and Blu-ray in pristine HD, sourced from a restored negative, on October 31, 2016.
This neo-realist classic won Sophia Loren (El Cid) a Best Actress Oscar, the first and only actor or actress to win for a foreign-language film performance.
Adapted from the eponymous novel by Alberto Moravia, Two Women tells the story of a beautiful young widow Cesira (Loren) and her twelve-year-old daughter as they struggle to survive in war ravaged Italy.
In the hope that Cesira can protect her daughter from the horrors of war they leave Rome to avoid the bombings and seek refuge in rural Italy, but there’s no escaping the devastating tragedy of war.
Loren also won Best Actress in Cannes for Two Women, which also won a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film on its release and also stars acclaimed actor Jean-Paul Belmondo (Breathless).
