Ettore Scola's 'Ugly, Dirty & Bad' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Wed Oct 12, 2016 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The 1976 Italian comedy arrives on Blu-ray in a few weeks.

In an early announcement to retailers, Film Movement has revealed 'Ugly, Dirty & Bad' will hit Blu-ray on November 1.

Acclaimed Italian auteur Ettore Scola pairs up with legendary actor Nino Manfredi in this irreverent Cannes-winning grotesque comedy. Giacinto (Manfredi), along with four generations of his sprawling, crooked clan, lives in a cramped, dilapidated home on the outskirts of Rome. When a work accident leaves him blind in one eye, the derelict suddenly finds himself rolling in insurance money. Refusing to share the wealth, Giacinto's relatives concoct several harebrained plots in hopes of wrenching the riches away.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless mono soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio Commentary by Richard Peña, Director Emeritus, New York Film Festival, and Professor of Film Studies, Columbia University; Production Stills; and Illustrated Collector's Booklet with film essay by film scholar Ronald Bergan.
