Raro Video/eOne's I VINTI/THE VANQUISHED by Antonioni (reviewed)

I have reviewed Raro Video/eOne's Region 0 NTSC DVD of Michelangelo Antonioni's I VINTI (THE VANQUISHED) over at DVDBeaver (review link below) where it has been compared with the older Region 0 PAL Italian Minerva Classics DVD edition.  Antonioni tells three stories set in Rome, Paris, and London of murders committed by affluent youth.  Franco Interlenghi (I VITELLONI), Anna-Maria Ferrero (THE BATTLE OF AUSTERLITZ), Eduardo Ciannelli (FOREIGN CORREPSONDENT), David Farrar (BLACK NARCISSUS), Patrick Barr (HOUSE OF WHIPCORD), Fay Compton (THE HAUNTING), and Etchika Choureau (A GIRL FROM PARIS) star.  Visconti collaborator Suso Cecchi d'Amico co-scripts, Antonioni regular Giovanni Fusco scores, and L'AVVENTURA cinematographer Aldo Scavarda is the camera operator for this earlier effort.

REVIEW LINK: Raro Video/eOne (USA) Region 0 NTSC DVD vs Minerva Classics (Italy) Region 0 PAL DVD (DVDBeaver)

THE VANQUISHED DVD specs:
  • 1.33:1 original aspect ratio video
  • Italian/French/English Dolby Digital 2.0 mono audio
  • Full Italian Dolby Digital 2.0 mono dub track
  • Optional English subtitles
  • Interview with actor Franco Interlenghi
  • Interview with producer Turi Vasile
  • Short film by Antonioni: Tentato Suicidio (1953) - Antonioni's entry in the omnibus film L'AMORE IN CITTA*
  • Uncut version of I VINTI's Italian episode (which premiered separately at the Venice Film Festival)
  • 8 page booklet

*Raro/eOne's disc of Fellini's I CLOWNS (blog entry HERE) features Fellini's entry from L'AMORE IN CITTA as an extra.
