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!
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.
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.
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
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.
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...Read more ›
