This review is from: Two Women [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Screen goddess Sophia Loren won a very well deserved Oscar for her strong and vivid portrayal of a war ravaged widow in the director Vittorio De Sica's neo -realist classic. two women chronicles the dreadful harrowing ordeal of the beautiful widow Cesira (Sofia Loren) and her shy and sickly daughter rosetta (eleonora Brown) as they escape the daily air raids in Rome by fleeing into the countryside.

The pair make there exhausting journey through and over corpses strewn mountains and burnt out valleys only to be brutally raped by the soldiers when they seek shelter in an abandoned church. all very very sad...seemes not to much has changed in the past 60 years.

Survival and shere perseverance in face of adversity. Two women is a very frank film with the universal message that our shared humanity transends all ethnic or political differences.

Sophia Loren can fit into comedy as well as serious in a blink of an eye. you just dont come across women like this in the main... charismatic, suffisticated,charming, and what a figure. produced by her husband Carlo Ponti....lucky man.

I warn you in advance this copy by Alpha video is a dreadful transfer one of the worst i have ever seen images are fuzzy low contrast poor colour about as useful as a chocolate fireguard.Alpha wake up and smell the popcorn

But its worth watching it just to get an idea what its all about, then give it away....perhaps one day a major company with money will make a quality transfer.
