Michelangelo Antonioni's The Vanquished Detailed

Posted June 18, 2014 04:36 PM by Webmaster

Raro Videoino Lorber and Raro Video have officially announced that they will release Michelangelo Antonioni's three-episode I vinti a.k.a. The Vanquished (1953) in a splendid new Blu-ray edition featuring a digitally restored and remastered HD transfer with new and improved English subtitle translations, and packed with a wealth of interesting and informative bonus features. The release will be available for purchase on July 8th.

Screened at the Venice Film Festival in 1953, I Vinti highlights the talent and sensibility of Michelangelo Antonioni, who would go on to direct some of the world's most lauded films such as L'Avventura and Blow-Up, early in his career. Now Antonioni's exploration of violence set across Europe can be seen in a newly remastered Blu-ray edition.

Synopsis: Challenging the linear narrative by weaving multiple story lines and exploring a directorial style way ahead of his time, Director Michelangelo Antonioni's unique triptych film, features three murders, one taking place in Paris, another in Rome, and another in London. All of the perpetrators are affluent youths, each killing for dubious motives. In the France segment, a group of adolescents kill for money, even though they don't need it; in the London segment, a poet uncovers a woman's body and tries to profit from the discovery; and in the Italian segment, a student becomes caught up in a smuggling ring, with deadly results.

With elements that serve as a precursor to Blowup, Antonioni explores how modern society can produce nihilistic tendencies in the least likely characters.

Special Features:
  • The original exclusive, uncut and elongated version of the Italian Episode as presented at the 1953 Venice Film Festival
  • An interview with the producer, Turi Vasile
  • An interview with one of the protagonists, Franco Interlenghi
  • An exclusive rare short film by Michelangelo Antonioni: Tentato Suicidio (23 min, 1953), an episode from L'Amore in Citta
  • A fully illustrated booklet containing critical analysis of the genesis of the film
  • Director biography and filmography
  • Digitally Restored and Remastered / New and improved English subtitle translation

DVDBeaver has a review up, and it is digitally scrubbed a lot and looks worse than the previous DVD release.

It's appalling what they've done to it, how can they treat films like that?
