Independent distributors Raro Video have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray acclaimed Italian director Liliana Cavani's (The Night Porter) I Cannibali a.k.a The Year of the Cannibals (1970), starring Pierre ClÚmenti, Britt Ekland, Tomas Milian, and Delia Boccardo. A preliminary release date, however, has not yet been announced.
Synopsis (courtesy of Rovi): This story of youthful rebellion is taken from the ancient Greek classic "Antigone." The setting is modern times and Britt Eklund plays Antigone in a fictitious land where reality is suspended. Haimon (Milian) goes against the wishes of his father and the prime minister by wanting to become an animal. Tiresias (Clementi) plays a Christ-like figure. The only resemblance between this version and the ancient tragedy is that the three principle characters are slated for an uncertain future among the living. With a soundtrack by the legendary Ennio Morricone.
