  • Cult Films Releasing Boccaccio '70 On Blu-ray


    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 remaster set for a Blu-ray, DVD and digital release on 26 June 2017.

    The inimitable Federico Fellini (8½) 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 (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 (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 most renowned Italian filmmakers of all time direct three of the most iconic actresses of all time in this unique collection.

    Special features include:

    • For the first time ever the film is presented in both its original language with new, improved, English subtitles - and alternatively with an English audio track
    • Exclusive Blu-ray Documentary: Sophia, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
