A masterpiece
3 October 2017 | by davepolit-83057See all my reviews

Why is this film not available on DVD? I saw it twice on German TV, many many years ago. And then lost all trace of it. Even in Italy I tried to find it in Video shops. Nobody even knew what I was talking about. So finally I started thinking, well, perhaps I had only imagined the film. But thanks to your website, I realise it all wasn't just a figment of my imagination.

Now for the concrete thing: Is there any way I could buy an Italian copy of this film? Can we ask the producers to provide it in one form or other before it complete disintegrates? That would be a great contribution to keeping cultural works alive.
