Federico Felliniâ€™s career achieved new levels of eccentricity and brilliance with this remarkable, controversial, extremely loose adaptation of Petroniusâ€™s classical Roman satire, written during the reign of Nero. An episodic barrage of sexual licentiousness, godless violence, and eye-catching grotesquerie, Fellini Satyricon follows the exploits of two pansexual young menâ€”the handsome scholar Encolpius and his vulgar, insatiably lusty friend Ascyltusâ€”as they move through a landscape of free-form pagan excess. Creating apparent chaos with exquisite control, Fellini constructs a weird old world that feels like science fiction.

Terence Hill (famous for his partnership with Bud Spencer in spaghetti westerns such as They Call Me Trinity and My Name is Nobody) stars as Don Matteo a thoroughly ordinary Catholic priest with an extraordinary ability to read people and solve crimes. He's a parish priest who never met an unjustly accused person he didn't want to help. In fact he never met anyone marginalized he didn't want to help: the elderly the homeless the immigrant the unemployed. He sees them all as he bicycles along the streets and through the countryside of his parish. He's a hometown boy who was baptized and ordained in Gubbio and is beloved by just about everyone in this stunning Italian mountain village. His easygoing manner endears him to people making it easy for them to reveal their secrets when they get into trouble. His friend and chess partner is policeman Marshal Cecchini who slips him information about new cases much to the chagrin of the police chief who isn't at all thrilled about the collaboration. But he's in agreement with Don Matteo about one thing: the importance of justice being served. Don Matteo has one more concern besides justice: to bring a word of hope to the culprit no matter what the crime. These simple tales of redemption and humanity will bring inspiration a chuckle and a smile. This DVD Set includes episodes 9-16: The Actor Blackmail The Scorpion's Strategy State of Intoxication The Little Angel Awaiting Trial The Fire of Passion and Academic Crime
Italian cinema dream team Sophia Loren (Marriage Italian Style) and Marcello Mastroianni (LaÂ dolce vita) are cast against glamorous type and deliver two of the finest performances of their careers in this moving, quietly subversive drama from Ettore Scola (The Family). Though itâ€™s set in Rome on the historic day in 1938 when Benito Mussolini and the city first rolled out the red carpet for Adolf Hitler, the film takes place entirely in a working-class apartment building, where an unexpected friendship blossoms between a pair of people who havenâ€™t joined the festivities: a conservative housewife and mother tending to her domestic duties and a liberal radio broadcaster awaiting deportation. Scola paints an exquisite portrait in sepia tones, a story of two individuals helpless in the face of fascismâ€™s rise. BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES â€¢ New, restored 4K digital transfer, supervised by director Ettore Scola, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack â€¢ New interviews with Scola and actor Sophia Loren â€¢ Two 1977 episodes of The Dick Cavett Show featuring Loren and actor Marcello Mastroianni â€¢ Trailer â€¢ New English subtitle translation â€¢ PLUS: An essay by critic Deborah Young
