Independent U.S. distributors Cult Epics will bring to Blu-ray Italian director Tinto Brass' Black Angel a.k.a. Senso '45 (2002), starring Anna Galiena, Gabriel Garko, Franco Branciaroli, Loredana Cannata, and Simona Borioni. The release will be available for purchase on August 12th.

Synopsis: In 1945 Italy, Livia (Anna Galiena), the bored wife of an Italian official, recalls the taboo affair she has been having with a much younger Nazi lieutenant (Gabriel Garko). The elation of her middle-aged sexual awakening is soon diminished when she discovers that her lover's intentions are far from honest. Ashamed and betrayed, she must make the difficult decision to resolve her devastating erotic entanglement. Tinto Brass reminds us why he is a master of his art. The lush and sentimental Ennio Morricone score beautifully complements the striking cinematography that contrasts the bliss of a woman's rediscovery with a society ravaged by war. This is Camillo Boito's 1882 novella Senso as only maestro-of-erotica Tinto Brass could tell it.

I really hope that the transfer is decent and not an old master. I have been disappointed by "All Ladies Do It" and "The Key" blu rays. I think if they were color corrected, the results would be better. The blacks look too weak and the colors seem too muted in both releases. Does Brass not have access to negatives or quality prints?

This should looks substantially better on Blu-ray. I have the R2 DVD release and the master that was used to produce it must be pretty good as the presentation is quite nice.

And here's a recommendation for the original Senso film, out via Criterion in the U.S. and Canal in Europe

Not optimistic, but anyone know if the German blu has proper framing?
Lex Luthor: Miss Teschmacher, some people can read War and Peace and come away thinking it's a simple adventure story. Others can read the ingredients on a chewing gum wrapper and unlock the secrets of the universe.Miss Teschmacher: Lex, what has chewing gum got to do with the secrets of the universe?Lex Luthor: [sighs] Right, Miss Teschmacher. Right.
