Unfortunately, as has been noted by a previous reviewer, the DVD transfer is abysmal. The print quality is particularly bad - early scenes are almost completely bleached out and later scenes are extremely dark, as though everyone is in shadows. In addition, only a full-screen version is available, which results in several important conversations whereby only one person is visible on-screen. Finally, the original Italian version with subtitles is not offered - this DVD is dubbed into English. The sound and dubbing are decent, but the actors all end up sounding rather flat and non-descript. It's really sad when a worthwhile movie is so poorly transferred. The DVD also has no extras.
Valerio Zurlini (1926-1982) was one of the most mature and relevant Italian directors of his generation. He always a very low profile and his real artistic motivations always turned around the edge conditions in the human being, trapped into the well web of lies and no sense hopes signed and remarked by an understandable conviction based on twisted illusions of better and sunny horizons.
Claudia Cardinale meant for the Italian Cinema what Anna Karina for the Frenchmen, the beauty and naïve girl who always falls in love with the wrong guy, defying all kind of precepts or even good advices. Both of them were perfect for those roles in which the lost innocence and the missing faith prevailed in the social ambiance.
You really should not miss this one, as part of an important item into the evolution of the Italian cinema in those ages.

Wonderful film that's debased in this edition. The print is poor, savagely cut, dubbed, and its original wide-screen image pan-and-scanned so that much detail is lost. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Van
What a disappointment in the quality of this release. Without question I would rate this classic Zurlini directed classic film with 5 Stars, as the movie is that good. Read morePublished on January 1, 2014 by Michael Ryan
The rating is not for the movie itself (which is wonderful), but for the poor quality of the video itself. Read morePublished on November 11, 2013 by Darrell Marlatt

"Girl with a Suitcase" is an interesting film that draws us into two very different characters. One is a world-wise "singer" who took some time off from her occupation to follow a... Read morePublished on July 12, 2009 by Randy Keehn
