Based on one of the most successful Italian plays ever, “Filumena Marturano” by playwright and philosopher Eduardo De Filippo, MARRIAGE ITALIAN STYLE is an exhilarating comedy (nominated for two Oscars® Best Foreign Picture and Best Actress) starring a combative Sophia Loren as a woman who’ll do anything to keep her companion!
Both Loren and co-star Mastroianni are more irrepressible than ever: their talent, exquisite timing and their sheer chemistry – emphasised by the direction of the Award-winning Vittorio De Sica – explode onto the screen! For the 1st time on video, the film is presented both in subtitled Italian and spoken English, enabling a new appreciation of this quintessential play which was first brought to UK by Franco Zeffirelli, and later showcased by Peter Hall with Dame Judy Dench. A timeless comedy of our all-too-human foibles.
Special Features: • “Sophia, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow” candid intimate interview of Loren with exclusive footage of her family, close friends and collaborators such as Woody Allen, Giorgio Armani and others. • “Vittorio D.” Tribute to multi-awarded maestro filmmaker De Sica, a milestone of Cinema history. With participation from Clint Eastwood, Ken Loach, Mike Leigh and many others.
