    Later remade in Hollywood as Sweet Charity, Fellini's NIGHTS OF CABIRIA is an often humorous, poignant, unflinching and vivid portrait of one woman's picaresque existence and her perseverance through adversity. Starring Fellini's wife, Giulietta Masina, as the irrepressible protagonist who previously appeared in a brief scene in The White Sheik, NIGHTS OF CABIRIA marked Fellini's last foray into gritty neo-realism before venturing into the surreal satire and dream logic of La Dolce Vita and Eight And A Half.

    Federico Fellini followed up his iconic breakthrough La strada with this brilliant drama - an unsparing look at the dog-eat-dog values of post war Italian society that nonetheless manages to navigate expertly between the lightly comic and the emotionally stark to become one of his richest most moving works. Il bidone [The Swindle] follows three small-time conmen - the ageing Augusto (Broderick Crawford) Picasso (Richard Basehart) and Roberto (Franco Fabrizi) - as they prey upon the poor and gullible for modest gains. However once Augusto is unexpectedly reunited with his daughter now struggling with her studies the moral and emotional demands of his lifestyle begin to take their toll sooner than he had anticipated. With its masterful set pieces and host of superb performances (including the director's wife and muse Giuletta Masina) this forms the centrepiece of what has been termed Fellini's Trilogy of Loneliness (with bookending films La strada and Le notti di Cabiria) and may be the darkest examination of human nature he ever attempted. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this long-undervalued classic in a new high-definition restoration. Special Features: Beautiful new high-definition master with the film appearing in 1080p Optional English subtitles Original theatrical trailer 36-Page Booklet featuring the words of Federico Fellini rare imagery and more!

    Fellini's take on youth which directly influenced films like Mean Streets, American Graffiti, Diner and other coming of age movies. Leonard Maltin rates it as Fellini's absolute masterpiece, yet it has been rarely revived perhaps overshadowed by his epoch-making, harbinger of a generation lifestyle, his DOLCE VITA! When discovering Fellini's I VITELLONI ('young bucks'), fans will instead recognise the director's influence on many later films adopting its bunch-of-guys-hanging-out format. Close to their 30s, the film's, mostly unemployed, long-time pals are too old to be kids but still uncertain about settling down in their Italian seaside town I VITELLONI is also terribly funny!.. and even if rooted in Italian neo-realism, Fellini is already announcing his fantastical, carnivalesque cinema of weirdness..

  • The Comfort Of Strangers [1990]The Comfort Of Strangers | DVD | (01/03/2004) from £11.30   |  Saving you £1.69 (13.00%)   |  RRP £12.99

    Based on an Ian McEwen novel, The Comfort of Strangers is directed by Paul Schrader at his most portentous. A young couple holidaying in Venice are taken up by an older more sophisticated pair. Christopher Walken as the Eurotrashy Roberto portrays with considerable vigour the sort of smooth stranger from whom anyone who has ever seen this sort of movie ought to run a mile, and Helen Mirren as his complaisant wife is hardly less sinister. Rupert Everett and Natasha Richardson are believably obtuse as the lovers who fail to understand exactly what they are being sucked into. This ought to be a far better film than it is: Harold Pinter's script is elliptically menacing and Angelo Badalamenti's score attractively gloomy. But in the end The Comfort of Strangers presents a rather low-rent vision of decadence: Roberto's praise of Margaret Thatcher and habit of photographing the unwary and beautiful are not quite enough to make the film's shocking climax entirely plausible. The DVD contains no additional features other than the obligatory theatrical trailer. --Roz Kaveney
