Il Grido (MOC) in May
Eureka Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of Michelangelo Antonioni’s Il Grido as part of their Masters of Cinema Series on 25th May 2009 priced at £19.99 RRP. A cinematic “cry” from one of the most revered of all auteurs, Italian maestro Michelangelo Antonioni depicts a world of heartbreaking alienation, with characters riven by trauma, cast against the stunning backdrop of northern Italy’s Po Valley – where the director spent his childhood.
The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Il Grido for home viewing in the UK for the first time. Features include:
- New high-definition transfer of the film in its original aspect ratio
- Newly translated optional English subtitles
- Original 1957 Italian theatrical trailer
- Previously unseen footage deleted from the director’s cut
- 56-page booklet featuring a colour reproduction of the original Italian poster, archival publicity stills, an essay by William Arrowsmith (Antonioni: The Poet of Images), and writing and interviews from Michelangelo Antonioni
