Editorial Reviews

In CHRIST STOPPED AT EBOLI, director Francesco Rosi’s stunning adaptation of Carlo Levi’s novel, Gian Maria Volonte (FISTFUL OF DOLLARS; FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE) stars as Levi, one of many intellectuals exiled by the Fascist government during World War II. Banished to Gagliano, an ancient mountain village in southern Italy, Volonte discovers the stark beauty of the landscape as well as the resilience of the peasants, who have lived there for generations. The legendary Irene Papas (ERENDIRA; Z; CAPTAIN CORELLI’S MANDOLIN) costars as the earthy Giulia, a housekeeper who teaches the sophisticated writer about the dignity of people who live close to the land. Francesco Rosi (THREE BROTHERS; SALVATORE GIULIANO) offers an authentic but moving story against a historical backdrop, stunningly photographed in rich detail.

This is a beautiful and very moving film,but almost spolit by a very poor transfer...The picture and sound qualiy are very poor. I have noticed this by dvd's released by Facets Video,Cammina Cammina being one example.But please do not be put off this film for this reason,the film itself is beautiful and very moving,highly recommended.If possible try to track down the Italian release of this film.The quality is much better. The full uncut version of this film has now been released in the UK.

A 3 hour and 24 minute version of this magnificent film used to be available on a PAL two-cassette video set from Artificial Eye in Britain. That now appears to be out of print. It was the 4-part TV series version, with beginning and end credits for each of the episodes. A 35mm print of that 3 1/2 hour version (minus repeated credits) played in a few selected theatres in the U.S., beginning in 1982 or two years after the U.S. release of a 120 minute version in 1980.

I first watched this powerful movie on two VHS cassettes five years ago. Since then, it's come out on DVD. Unfortunately, there were, in my view, many significant editing cuts to get the film on one disc that really take away from some of the subtle scenes that make the movie great. The DVD is still good, but loses some steam from the original version...It would be nice to see movies this special reproduced in their entirety.

Format: DVD
This film shows promise, but the transfer is so abysmal that it completely ruins the viewing experience. The sound is especially bad and annoying. Also, the film doesn't have the "feel" of being a complete creative entity. I have read that it was originally released in an extended version, which I would very much like to see.

Format: DVD
I can only add my own voice to the clamor raised over the poor poor quality of Facets' DVD release. It's difficult to assess the film itself based on such a low-grade presentation. The print has all the appearance of having been transferred directly from a multigenerational VHS tape. It's dark, grainy, blurry, and frustrating to watch. Only the scenes shot in brightest sunlight hint at what might have once been a film of rare beauty. In addition, the DVD offers no special features at all. Finally, the English subtitles are rife with both distracting misspellings ("blackshirsts" for "blackshirts") and translation hexes that vary between merely baffling to downright risible (when the Italians conquer Ethiopia, we are told, "They'll inseminate it, with work!"). Overall, I must recommend avoiding this DVD, a product so shoddy it makes me leery myself of purchasing any other releases from Facets.

The film takes us to southern district of Italy in 1930s. Land scape is very beautiful but the hero is obliged to be there as an exile person. S beautiful landscape is in strong contrast to his innner world. Among the pious pesants a lot of old superstitions are alive. The film gives us a strong impression!

Beautiful and haunting, this is a FILM, not a movie. No car chases, no violence, a very profound and watchable exploration of the myths and customs of a small Southern Italian town during the emergence of Mussolini. The acting is exceptional.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By New Yorker on July 7, 2013
Format: DVD
In the 1930s in Italy, an anti-fascist from the educated, industrial
north is exiled to a remote, primitive southern village--but really
primitive, up in the hills where no one ever comes--where his medical training
makes him indispensable to the locals. He is sophisticated and
careful; they are earthy and impulsive. Somehow, it's a good mix.
The entire film has the air of a documentary because of its intense
realism, and the protagonist, Gian Maria Volonte, plays his role to
a T. This film is moving and thrilling, and it's especially winning
right at the start when the hero, at a railway station, encounters
a mixed-breed dog sitting with great dignity, ignoring everybody. It has
a piece of paper at its collar, asking someone to take care of it. Just
like that. And the hero adopts the dog. Wonderful.

The Italian release of the film is much better quality and it does come with English subtitles. The 145min version is the longest yet to be released on dvd but it still falls short of the 3hr 12min of the full film. The only complete version ever released was on VHS in the UK, which sadly is no... Read More

Totally agree with you. Anything which is usually released by Facets is alway of the poorest quality
