BOCCACCIO 70 (DVD): Sophia Loren stars in this four-part film that was meant to tap the international smash of Federico Fellini's ''La Dolce Vita''. Four directors were hired to create segments ostensibly based on the tales of Boccaccio: Fellini himself (in the lull between ''La Dolce Vita'' and ''8-1/2''), Luchino Visconti, Vittorio De Sica and Mario Monicelli. SPECIAL FEATURES: Photo gallery, Original American theatrical trailer. 1962 - Color - 205 minutes - 1.66:1 - Italian with English Subtitles.
CASANOVA 70: Marcello Mastroianni portrays the handsome lover Casanova pitted against a thoroughly modern woman. This is a legendary hero often depicted in movies, but this time he is portrayed with a slightly different problem - the only time he's ''in the mood'' is when he feels that he is in danger. His job as a NATO officer offers plenty of opportunity for his sexual arousal problems to be assuaged. ACADEMY AWRD NOMINEE - BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY. From director Mario Monicelli. 1965 - Color - 90 minutes - 1.72:1 - Italian with English Subtitles.
STORY OF A LOVE AFFAIR: 2-DISC SPECIAL EDITION (DVD): Paola (Lucia Bose) is the beautiful and jealously-guarded younger wife of a shady factory owner, Enrico Fontana (Massimo Girotti). In order to investigate her romantic history he hires a private detective, which ironically brings Paola back into contact with former lover Guido, with whom she resurrects a lost passion. Dogged by the suspicions of their respective mates, they are drawn closer to each other in the face of adversity, and begin to plot Enrico's demise. But when the challenge of being together falls away, will the passion start to wane? From acclaimed Director Michelangelo Antonioni (Blow-up, The Passenger). SPECIAL FEATURES : TBD. 1950 - Black & White - 98 minutes - 1.33:1 - Italian with English Subtitles.
