Product Notes

Language: Italian. Run Time: 113 minutes. Beautiful new high-definition master, with the film appearing in 1080p on the Blu-ray and in a progressive encode on the DVD. Optional English subtitles. Interview with Dominique Delouche. Original theatrical trailer. 48-PAGE BOOKLET featuring a new and exclusive essay by Pasquale Iannone; an interview with Fellini; a piece on the film by André Bazin; Fellini's letter to a Jesuit priest; an afterword by Fellini; and rare archival imagery. Federico Fellini followed up his iconic breakthrough La strada with this brilliant drama an unsparing look at the dog-eat-dog values of postwar Italian society that nonetheless manages to navigate expertly between the lightly comic and the emotionally stark to become one of his richest, most moving works. l bidone [The Swindle] follows three small-time the ageing Augusto (Broderick Crawford), 'Picasso' (Richard Basehart), and Roberto (Franco Fabrizi) as they prey upon the poor and gullible for modest gains. However, once Augusto is unexpectedly reunited with his daughter, now struggling with her studies, the moral and emotional demands of his lifestyle begin to take their toll sooner than he had anticipated. With it's masterful set pieces and host of superb performances (including the directors wife and muse Giuletta Masina), this forms the centrepiece of what has been termed Fellini s Trilogy of Loneliness (with bookending films La strada and Le notti di Cabiria), and may be the darkest examination of human nature he ever attempted. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this long-undervalued classic in a new high-definition restoration, Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) release.
