Boccaccio 70 DVD


Inspired by The Decameron, World-Cinema greatests, Fellini, Visconti and De Sica lend their extraordinary talents to make these slice-of-life stories revolving around the sex games of the middle class. Working-class lovers marry but must hide it from her employer; plus, they need a room of their own. A billboard of Anita Ekberg provocatively selling milk gives a prudish crusader for public decency more than he can handle. The wife of a count whose escapades with call girls make the front page of the papers decides to work to prove her independence, but what is she qualified to do? A buxom carnival-booth manager who owes back taxes offers herself for one night in a lottery: a nerdy sacristan and a jealous suitor make for a lovers' triangle. In each, women take charge, albeit not always successfully ! Extras: Sophia, yesterday, today and tomorrow: a candid intimate interview with Sophia Loren with exclusive footage of her family, close friends and collaborators such as Woody Allen, Giorgio Armani and others New HD material, finally doing justice to the filmmaker's original vision New improved subtitles Exclusive Documentary on Sophia Loren

Collection of four short stories, each directed by one of Italy's most famous directors, focusing on women taking back control of their lives. Mario Monicelli's tale 'Renzo and Luciana' concerns two lovers, played by Germano Gilioli and Marisa Solinas, who must keep their wedding secret from their employers to avoid the sack. Anita Ekberg stars in Federico Fellini's story 'The Temptation of Dr. Antonio', about a prudish censor who tries to ban a huge billboard of the star, only to be haunted by its alluring gaze. In Luchino Visconti's 'The Job', a countess (Romy Schneider) decides to get a job after the scandalous exposure of her husband's infidelities. Finally, in 'The Raffle', Vittorio De Sica tells the story of Zoe (Sophia Loren), who offers herself in a lottery to help pay her pregnant sister's taxes, but who decides to call off the deal when she falls for a local stable boy.
