Is this legit?

"Horrible bootleg version of wonderful film. Why do these people continue to release sub par video. Avoid Televista or Jef Video or Newstar"
A Special Day
Z. Arevshatian | USA | 12/11/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"DO NOT waste money on this item. This is a transfer made directly from a videotape. The quality is very poor. The image is soft and its colors bleed. Contrary to the item's description for the DVD as having subtitles, the DVD has an English voice over dubbed on top of the Italian soundtrack which makes it extremely annoying to listen to. The DVD is not subtitled."
Deception

"The recording quality is so low that it seems as if it was transferred from an ordinary VHS and dubbed in English. Even the original soundtrack is not avaliable! It's an awful edition, which only leaves me feeling that I have I thrown away my money."
A 5 star movie but a 1 star dvd
Jonathan Lapin | Brooklyn, NY USA | 05/04/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"the history is only a background in this film casting sophia loren & marcello mastroianni as a depressed middle aged housewife and a depressed middle aged gay man thrown together in rome on the day when hitler pays an official state visit to mussolini. this is a great movie, but i cant recommend it to anyone who did not see it in its theatrical release. why? because this dvd is of a horrid print dubbed into english! no actor of such import has been as badly served in the dvd market as has sophia loren, several of whose greatest movies ("two women", "yesterday today & tomorrow", "el cid", this) are available only on dreadful transfers. PLEASE somebody get decent transfers made; "a special day" deserves to get 5 stars, but not til its viewable.
