Francesco Rosi's film is based on the life of Carlo Levi, who was exiled to the remote region of Eboli in 1935 for his opposition to Mussolini. Gian Maria Volonte stars.

65 of 65 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Michael A. Bruno on 20 Jun 2007
Format: DVD
I own the VHS version and have watched it many times. It's a beautiful and very accurate portrayal of life in the mountain villages during that period in Italy's history. I wanted the film on DVD and bought it. To my great disappointment, I found that many scenes present in the VHS version had been cut. This ruined the film for me. Those scenes were a very important part of the story, portraying some special times in village life and the isolation felt by Carlo Levi. I still cannot believe that a DVD version would be cut! Why I wonder? I treasure my VHS version and hope it doesn't wear out. The DVD is pretty poor in comparison.

Format: DVD
Right from the opening notes of a score that is as beautiful as it is haunting, this film adaptation of the book is utterly mesmerising. In depicting the internal exile that the Fascist regime imposed on its opponents in Italy prior to WWII, the film delivers a remarkably powerful tale of a man and a village and the changing nature of their relationship as the distant world to which they are so tenuously connected closes in and changes the lives of each and every individual. A visually, emotionally and intellectually satisfying film that, in places, almost slows time to a halt, but never ceases to engross the viewer for a moment.

Great Film-Poor transfer 18 Nov 2003
By Michael Papa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is a beautiful and very moving film,but almost spolit by a very poor transfer...The picture and sound qualiy are very poor. I have noticed this by dvd's released by Facets Video,Cammina Cammina being one example.But please do not be put off this film for this reason,the film itself is beautiful and very moving,highly recommended.If possible try to track down the Italian release of this film.The quality is much better. The full uncut version of this film has now been released in the UK.

Full version 21 Nov 2005
By Gerald A. Deluca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A 3 hour and 24 minute version of this magnificent film used to be available on a PAL two-cassette video set from Artificial Eye in Britain. That now appears to be out of print. It was the 4-part TV series version, with beginning and end credits for each of the episodes. A 35mm print of that 3 1/2 hour version (minus repeated credits) played in a few selected theatres in the U.S., beginning in 1982 or two years after the U.S. release of a 120 minute version in 1980.

Great movie but massively edited for DVD 3 Sep 2005
By italiano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I first watched this powerful movie on two VHS cassettes five years ago. Since then, it's come out on DVD. Unfortunately, there were, in my view, many significant editing cuts to get the film on one disc that really take away from some of the subtle scenes that make the movie great. The DVD is still good, but loses some steam from the original version...It would be nice to see movies this special reproduced in their entirety.

Film Aficionado 8 Dec 2006
By James Sanborn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This film shows promise, but the transfer is so abysmal that it completely ruins the viewing experience. The sound is especially bad and annoying. Also, the film doesn't have the "feel" of being a complete creative entity. I have read that it was originally released in an extended version, which I would very much like to see.

DVD production an insult 22 Jan 2011
By David August - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I can only add my own voice to the clamor raised over the poor poor quality of Facets' DVD release. It's difficult to assess the film itself based on such a low-grade presentation. The print has all the appearance of having been transferred directly from a multigenerational VHS tape. It's dark, grainy, blurry, and frustrating to watch. Only the scenes shot in brightest sunlight hint at what might have once been a film of rare beauty. In addition, the DVD offers no special features at all. Finally, the English subtitles are rife with both distracting misspellings ("blackshirsts" for "blackshirts") and translation hexes that vary between merely baffling to downright risible (when the Italians conquer Ethiopia, we are told, "They'll inseminate it, with work!"). Overall, I must recommend avoiding this DVD, a product so shoddy it makes me leery myself of purchasing any other releases from Facets.
