Mr G.
Reviewed on 1/26/2017...
A below-average quality transfer to DVD, but watchable. As far as plot and acting, I found it worth watching (I like foreign films). 3 stars.

Italian movie from 1978. Dubbed in English. No subtitles.

Plays fine in my DVD player, and in computer CD/DVD drive.

Box/cover image is not from movie.

Back of box mentions a "Parental Lock which excludes scenes containing extreme violence and nudity" -- but no such feature is actually on the disc. Strange.

There is a scene selection option. The only "extras" are some brief filmographies on the 2 main actors (Dominique Sanda, Anthony Quinn).

Note: DVD disc is in a music-CD type folding plastic case, inside a regular DVD box sized cardboard box.

Good Movie, Really Bad Transfer
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Four stars for the movie, zero for the transfer. There is a good story in there, coupled with good performances. Overall a good movie. The DVD transfer is really, really bad. Pan and scan with a disturbingly ugly result. Grain, bad color. Watching it on a large screen is outright unpleasant. Did I say the sound is bad too (dubbed). Looks like Simitar Video copied a VHS tape to DVD. Simitar Video should not be in the DVD transfer business. Hope someone else brings this otherwise fine movie to DVD - properly!"
