Italy Kinoglazorama to relase Petri 's Todo Modo in 2015

From their facebook page:

We are very excited and happy to announce that we secured worlwide rights to release a Blu Ray edition of Elio Petri's masterpiece TODO MODO.
The movie has been unavailable for a long time anywhere in the world, in any format. Time to get rid of those blurry VHS taped from Italian TV (also a shorter version) and delete those youtube files of the same rotten source. The film is going under a major restoration with a 4K film scan of the original negatives and frame by frame clean up.

There are details to be unveiled very soon about this release, it is just that we couldn't keep it for ourselves anymore.

Todo Modo is possibly the most sought after political film of all times, directed by Academy Award winner Elio Petri (best foreign film 1970, Investigation on a citizen above suspicion) and starring some of the finest actors of Italian Cinema like Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli, Gian Maria Volontè, Ciccio Ingrassia, Franco Citti and Mariangela Melato.

The film caused such a stir at the time of its release because of the gritty depiction of the meeting of a leading politcal party while an unstoppable disease is spraeding in streets of Rome. Church, poltical leaders, Capitalists are showed at their very lowest using sex, corruption and even murder to achieve their goal. The film also was a forerunner of following events that led to the tragic killing of Prime Minister Aldo Moro by the terrorist group Red Brigades.

It's an unforgettable experience, a film that grows up within the viewer leaving a sense of discomfort and uneasiness. It is brilliant and compelling.

We are actually working on an event to present the film in Rome during the fall, but there is more than that, as written above, we'll be unveiling soon.

The film will be featured on double layered BRD with extras tbc.
Tech spec: OAR1.85:1, 16:9, 1920X1080 24P
Audio Italian DTS HD Master Audio original Mono restored
Subtitles: English, French, German, Spanish, Macedonian, Serbian


street date: spring/summer 2015

Available only for purchase on our site and trhough selected retaillers.

This a major step for us and bring us back to what we know to do best.
In the past we have been working in distribution and our work has been compared to the one of Criterion and more. The New York Times in 2006 voted us amongst the 10 best North American distributors. The Magazine Premiere that year did the same. We were the first in Italy to restore and trasfer a movie in HD back at the end of the 90's and the releases of our labels on DVD are amongst the most sought after from Collectors all around the world.

more details coming soon

Fantastic news! This hasn't been an easy film to track down and apparently Mastroianni himself called it a lost masterpiece of Italian cinema. I'm looking forward to seeing it very much.

AMAZING news! Day one purchase for me! I saw a rip with English subtitles and 'Todo Modo' is a VERY intense experience! I really hope someone releases 'We Still Kill The Old Way' soon too.

These links should work:

This was released as DVD only in Italy, despite the recent masterful resto, which is disappointing.

So, erm, what the hell happened to this "upcoming" US Blu?
