Product Description

Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow OSCAR® winner for Best Foreign Film in 1964 stars ACADEMY AWARD® Winner Sofia Loren (Two Women) and Marcello Mastroianni (La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2) who won Best Foreign Actor at the BAFTAs in 1965 for his performance. Vittorio De Sica the great Italian neo-realist director of Shoeshine and Bicycle Thieves completely changes pace for this delightful comedy anthology, a trio of sexual escapades that helped make Loren and Mastroianni the two most popular Italian performers of 20th Century cinema. Adelina (Loren) sells black-market cigarettes on the streets of Naples to support her unemployed husband Carmine (Mastroianni). Caught by the police, and with a jail sentence hanging over her head, desperation sets in. She learns that she can avoid prison as long as she's pregnant. Several years and seven children later, Carmine is exhausted, so jail looks inescapable as does Adelina's contempt for Carmine. In Milan, our second protagonist, Anna (Loren), is bored and wealthy, drives a Rolls Royce, and is having an affair with a writer (Mastroianni). She talks dreamily of running off with him, that is until one day he crashes her car... In the third and final vignette, Loren plays Mara, a call girl from Rome, who turns the head of a naive young man training to become a Priest, prompting a run-in with his self-righteous grandmother and a vow of abstinence. Featuring Loren's notorious striptease, which was recreated years later by Robert Altman in Prêt-à-Porter. Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow remains one of the most loved Italian films of all time, and has never looked better than in this officially-licenced high-definition restoration. Available for the first time ever on DVD in the UK, uncut and in its original aspect ratio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sophia: Ieri, Oggi, Sempre 23 Dec 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Vittorio De Sica's trilogy is the ultimate Loren film in which she plays a feisty Neapolitan vendor of black-market cigarettes who keeps getting pregnant in order to stay out of jail; the rich-bitch wife of a Milanese industrialist having an affair with a struggling writer; and a Roman call-girl who arouses unholy thoughts in a naive young seminarian in the adjacent apartment. The third episode is undoubtedly the best, with Loren's steamy bedroom striptease as possibly the sexiest thing ever filmed. Oh, and Mastroianni is excellent,too,in his three contrasting roles as over-taxed husband,out-of-his depth lover, and lusty but frustrated client.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yesterday Today & Tomorrow 29 May 2008
Format:DVD
This is one of my favorite of Sophia Loren's flim, and like the previous review it is a wonderful film with beautiful acting and Sophia Loren looks so fabulous in all three films. Also to see sceneries of Rome and the country side in the Sixties, I just love it. The quality of the Dvd is excellent, with its original wide screen presentation, also you have a choice of the original in Italian with superb picture quality indeed. Happy Sophia's fan.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a Delight 12 April 2009
Format:DVD
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow and, no doubt, for years to come, this film will give you enormous pleasure. How could it fail? The Loren, Mastroianni, De Sica combination is fail-proof. La Loren, as always, lights up the screen with her undeniable beauty; brilliant, open hearted, gutsy and generous performance; and her versatility. Mastroianni is certainly her equal in all respects. Two actors who could steal any scene, Loren and Mastroianni play so beautifully and generously in all of their films together, comedy or drama, from "A Special Day" to "Marriage Italian Style" they deserve to be called the greatest screen couple of all time. It must have been a joy for the Master, De Sica, to direct them.

I happened to watch this DVD the night after watching "Bicycle Thieves" so was once again struck by the awesome intelligence, compassion, and versatility of De Sica. A true Master of the cinema.

Finally, this high-definition restoration of the film truly adds to the enjoyment of watching it.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
NB - As is their wont, Amazon have unhelpfully bundled the reviews for the various different releases and formats of this film together. This review refers to Kino Lorber's US Blu-ray release.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow grabbed the Best Foreign Film Oscar and was a big hit with international audiences, and while it's far from high art, it's not difficult to understand why. It's a glossy crowd-pleasing trio of sex comedies starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni that, by the sheer virtue of being foreign, gets away with far more than Hollywood pictures of the day could. Not that it's that risqué by modern standards, but it makes no bones about what its stars are really after. In the first, Adelina, Loren is one of the legion of women selling contraband cigarettes on the streets of Naples who finds that she can stay out of jail as long as she is pregnant - so she sets husband Mastroianni to ensuring that she's always pregnant whenever the police arrive every 15 months: fine at first, but after six children he can barely stand... The second and shortest, Anna, sees Loren's rich trophy wife trying to convince Mastroianni's journalist that she's not really interested in money only for an accident in her new Rolls Royce to test her real priorities. The final story, Mara, is the one that earned the film its place in the iconic scenes Hall of Fame for the striptease Loren's high-class courtesan performs for Mastroianni's pervy civil servant (something the filmmakers were smart enough to keep for the film's grand finale). It's really almost an afterthought to the plot itself, which sees the disapproving next-door neighbours' grandson decide to chuck in life in the seminary in favour of more earthly pursuits with La Loren...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Typical Hollywood Flick 6 Feb 2011
By E. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I came to this after the colourful and pleasant delights of It Started in Naples and Three Coins in the Fountain and the like. For me, and despite the glowing reviews, this wasn't as easy on the eye or ear. For one thing, it's not the typical Americanised romantic idealistic view of 50s/60s Italy that the others are, but instead this is a much more realistic vision of Italy as it once must have been, and is interesting for that alone.

It does feel slightly awkward watching subtitles, and I'm sure we lose a great deal of what's being said and the nuances of how they say it. That said, anything involving the Sophia Loren of that era is a joy to the eye, as she must surely have been the sexiest and most attractive actress of all time.

The stories themselves are pleasant enough and it's interesting to see how different the two leads are in each, but I'm not sure this is one I'd come back to, mostly because of my lack of Italian. This is probably one for the more serious film buff.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic comedy 3 in 1 30 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
I remember seeing this many years ago in Italy at a cinema and it has stayed in my mind ever since.

This version, with English subtitles, will make it accessible to a much wider audience who can now appreciate what a superb comedy film this is.

It consists of 3 short films, each with the same leading actors, but in three different settings, one in Naples, one on a motorway near Milan and one in Rome. Sophia Loren and Marchello Mastroianni work perfectly together to make this one of the best Italian comedy films ever made.
