Groundbreaking film deserves better transfer
on 23 March 2009
This review applies to the Australian DVD on the Umbrealla World Cinema label. There's no doubting the importance or impact "Ossessione" had on Italian neo-realist cinema, but this transfer is hideous! I own over 1,000 DVDs and this is one of the worst transfers I have ever seen. Let's wait and hope that Criterion gets a chance to clean it up. Meanwhile, stay away from this sad shadow of a masterpiece.
