Win Sophia Loren's Boccaccio on Blu-ray


Preview by Jack Foley

THIS summer, screen goddess Sophia Loren dazzles in HD in a trio of Italian cinema classics, Boccaccio 70’, Marriage Italian Style and Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

These world cinema greats arrive on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time in both English and original Italian with improved subtitles – all complete with brand new special features in distinctive collector’s packaging courtesy of CultFilms.

Women take the lead in Boccaccio 70, four arresting tales of women’s empowerment and the sexual revolution in post-war Italy in a superb HD re-mastered set for a Blu-ray, DVD and digital release on 26 June 2017.

The inimitable Federico Fellini () directs his first colour work in The Temptation of Dr. Antonio, which produced the unforgettable image of a giant Anita Ekberg (La Dolce Vita) coming alive from a billboard in an old man’s obsessive fantasy come true.

The Job, directed by Luchino Visconti (The Leopard, Death in Venice), stars Hollywood icon Romy Schneider (Sissi) as an aristocratic housewife who turns the tables on her philandering husband – featuring what Time Magazine described as “surely one of the most provocative stripteases to be recorded on film”.

Vittorio de Sica (Umberto D, Two Women, Bicycle Thieves) directs the one and only Sophia Loren (Two Women) in The Raffle, a comedy in which a woman puts herself up as a prize in a carnival raffle.

The portraits conclude with Renzo and Luciana (Mario Monicelli – The Great War) which follows the plight of a devoted couple hiding their love from their factory employers.

The Blu-ray release features previously unseen documentary Sophia, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, a candid, intimate interview with Loren with exclusive contributions from Woody Allen, Giorgio Armani and other close friends and collaborators.
