Product Description

Academy Award(r) Winner Sophia Loren (TWO WOMEN) and Academy Award(r) nominee Marcello Mastroianni (LA DOLCE VITA, 8 1/2) team up in all three hilarious sexual escapades in this delightful comedy anthology which helped establish the two stars as the most popular Italian performers of 20th century cinema.

YESTERDAY, TODAY & TOMORROW, winner of the 1964 Oscar(r) for Best Foreign Film, remains one of the most beloved Italian films of all time.

A masterful comedic film by Italy's greatest neo-realist director, Vittorio De Sica (THE BICYCLE THIEF, TWO WOMEN), is here for the first time ever on DVD in America -uncut in its original aspect ratio.

The brand new 16x9 digital transfer was restored in collaboration with De Sica Foundation from the original 35mm interpositive and has never looked better.

The final vignette featuring Loren's notorious striptease, was recreated decades later by Robert Altman in READY TO WEAR.

Most of the Amazon reviews linked to this new Region 1 DVD from NoShame films refer to the awful bootleg versions that have been previously available. Ignore them!

This DVD is gorgeous - with a beautiful 16x9 Widescreen (2.35:1) high definition transfer. There is an Italian track with optional English subtitles. There is also the option to choose the English dubbed track if you want to.

NoShame is also releasing a pristine version of the Fellini/Visconti/DeSica multi-part comedy Boccaccio '70 completely uncut for the first time ever in the U.S. The long missing Mario Monicelli segment has finally been restored as well!

I bought this because it looked like a good deal but I had no way of knowing that it was dubbed. I had originally seen both films in Italian with subtitles...and both truly are wonderful films (Sophia won Best Actress for Two Women). If they only included the information (dubbed or subtitled) I would have been able to make an informed decision instead of taking a shot in the dark. Obviously, I'm not happy with the dubbed version. Oh, and also, the quality of the video is less than great.

Ignore the reviews of the bootleg DVD; this new digital transfer from the internegative is lush and clean. There is both a subtitled Italian audio track and a English dubbed version. No comment is needed about the film; time has proved its value.

Please view this extraordinary picture and compare it to modern sex comedies; you might conclude that we haven't advanced the art of film over this wonderful production. Buy, enjoy and spread the word.

I believe the Amazon.com Editorial Review is self explanatory. This film is a masterpiece, an important component of Sofia Loren's filmography and one of her most admired performances.

Now let's address this DVD release! It was apparently transfered from deteriorated film elements, horrendous (jolts) pan and scan with an annoying monophonic dubbed soundtrack. This DVD release does not do justice to this Italian cinematographic jewel. It should not be in the market. Perhaps it is best to visit Italy, buy its PAL version and play it back in one of today's fine multi region DVD players. Don't spend a penny on this monstruosity.

It is tragic to see that such a great Sophia Loren flick has been
reduced to this awful transfer on DVD.
Don't buy this DVD, the picture quality is so bad that the entire
movie is out of focus, fuzzy, blurry and hurts your eyes.The sound is all distorted as well.
This DVD is from a company called Entertainment Programs Inc., in California and they have obviously transfered a pan/scan version of a really bad washed out VHS tape on this DVD.
The Picture and the sound quality is worst than a VHS tape recorded in slow mode. I am surprised that Amazon is actually selling this junk.
This is the worst DVD transfer I have ever seen.
I have a VHS version of this movie and the VHS tape is much
better. Hope some reliable company will transfer this gem of a movie on a real high quality DVD, in the meantime save your money and watch your VHS tape. Don't buy this DVD, it is really bad
quality.

This DVD put out by NoShame Films is the best quality DVD of this film ever put out!

The picture and sound are of the highest quality. Even if you already have a DVD of this movie, throw it away and get this one. None of the others compare.

Don't make the mistake i did by buying this copy of this classic ITALIAN movie.It's a complete disaster with faded colors and grainy images.I can't beleive they put this one on the market.You'll get to see the three sketches all right, but the transfer is simply amateurish and insulting.No subtitles,not even the original ITALIAN track,no gallery of photos etc.This is the worst dvd i ever bought.Luckily for others,a new version was released in 2005 which has the proper treatment.I just hope that VISCONTI's last movie THE INNOCENT won't fall in this category when they released it someday.Let us pray for the preservation of LAURA ANTONELLI's beauty.

NB - As is their wont, Amazon have unhelpfully bundled the reviews for the various different releases and formats of this film together. This review refers to Kino Lorber's US Blu-ray release.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow grabbed the Best Foreign Film Oscar and was a big hit with international audiences, and while it's far from high art, it's not difficult to understand why. It's a glossy crowd-pleasing trio of sex comedies starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni that, by the sheer virtue of being foreign, gets away with far more than Hollywood pictures of the day could. Not that it's that risqué by modern standards, but it makes no bones about what its stars are really after. In the first, Adelina, Loren is one of the legion of women selling contraband cigarettes on the streets of Naples who finds that she can stay out of jail as long as she is pregnant - so she sets husband Mastroianni to ensuring that she's always pregnant whenever the police arrive every 15 months: fine at first, but after six children he can barely stand... The second and shortest, Anna, sees Loren's rich trophy wife trying to convince Mastroianni's journalist that she's not really interested in money only for an accident in her new Rolls Royce to test her real priorities. The final story, Mara, is the one that earned the film its place in the iconic scenes Hall of Fame for the striptease Loren's high-class courtesan performs for Mastroianni's pervy civil servant (something the filmmakers were smart enough to keep for the film's grand finale). It's really almost an afterthought to the plot itself, which sees the disapproving next-door neighbours' grandson decide to chuck in life in the seminary in favour of more earthly pursuits with La Loren...
