Movie Reviews

A Powerful Film...An Unacceptable Video Transfer
A. Wolverton | Crofton, MD United States | 05/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"'Two Women' is a stark film from the neo-realism school that still packs a solid punch. Sophia Loren plays a beautiful widow who seeks to protect her teenage daughter from the ravages of World War II Rome. She's proud, opinionated, but protective and loving toward her daughter Rosetta. The two women flee to the widow's village, where they meet an idealistic young man to whom they are both attracted. The tragic events occur quite late in the film, but by the time they do, we really know who these characters are, making the film extremely powerful.Loren looks stunning and acts wonderfully, but all the actors in the film are wonderful as well. But Loren had (and still has) that quality that makes her the center of all attention every time she is on-screen. A stunning actress in a stunning role. I cannot finish this review without commenting on the abysmal video transfer to DVD. This is without a doubt the worst looking and sounding DVD I have ever seen since the medium was invented. I wish Sophia Loren would sue this video company for the travesty they have done to this fine film. How in the world with all the technology at our disposal can such a poor product be released on the market? I only hope a proper version can be released soon. This is criminal. 99 minutes"
"..and just a little bit for Rosetta."

"Acting doesn't get any better than if your watching a Sophia Loren film. She's beautiful, smart, witty and one of the greatest actress ever to grace the motion picture screen.This movie is very serious drama with some light moments but you'll see termendious acting by everyone. This is a rare reminder of the terror of World War II, the stuggles, the hardship that people had to endure.My only problem with the DVD is the audio. I don't want to discourage anyone from buying this great motion picture but the sound is TERRIBLE. I don't understand how the studio could let something like this be sold with such a terrible audio track. It's scratchy and tinny in sound. Other than that the picture quality if pretty good but is still worth owning. It's a great Italian movie."
Don't buy - EXTREMELY poor quality recording
Rick D. Barszcz | 12/24/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The film and Sofia Loren's performance are 5 stars. The video quality is 0 stars. I expected less than perfect quality based on the previous reviews, but thought I would take a chance for 4.99. Sorry I did - I was unprepared for just how bad this is. Faces are just blurs. It doesn't track right in my VCR. It was poorly recorded in EP mode. What a waste - this film deserves better. Don't buy this - the "Madacy Music Group Inc." manufactured and distributed this video and don't deserve the profits. Included with the video is a brochure of other "Hollywood Classics" they have given this poor treatment. There is no excuse for this."
Beware This "Hollywood Classics" Transfer
Wayne Marshall Jones | 08/15/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wonderful film is almost unwatchable as presented here. Quality is worse than bad VHS tape, which must have been the source for this "digital transfer". Wait until another source is available."
