Title: The Wild Eye / L'occhio selvaggio (Paolo Cavarra, 1967)
Post by: Jonny on 23 Apr 2008 - 16:35
Anyone notice that there's a German DVD out for this? More to the point does anyone have it and can let us know about the a/v quality?

Amazon.de list it as being 16:9, with German audio. Only 6.99 euros too...

a Friend of mine hast and has the following info:

Widescreen 2.35 (16:9); German Audio only (most likely remastered German Print)
Runtime 93:22 PAL

i'd say someone try the thing out, it could be the best Thing ever seen for this rare movie...

Great post Jonny, I have wanted to see this for a very long time.  Anyone know whether there is an English audio track available, would make a nice fan dub.  :D

From Finland cool. I sure would like to get my hands of that tape. The Wild Eye is really a great movie.

I've got a copy of the English language version too, doesn't look to be a 1st gen copy though. Audio is a little low on it so might have to get an upgrade off you Marc ready for when the German disc arrives.

The Finnish tape I have just looks crap to be honest - would be really nice to find that Japanese release.

Might still need a copy of your Finnish tape though, just for the audio, as my DVD-R is NTSC and I'll need a PAL copy to synch up with the German DVD.

i'm sure the Finish DVD-R is still in PAL-Length, Jonny. converting a VHS Tape to NTSC DVD-R is not gonna change its runtime. if you have problems with NTSC-PAL Audio Files, always ask me ;)

Finished dubbing the German DVD into English. Very nice 16:9 enhanced 'scope print, I filtered out a lot of the noise that was present on the Finnish VHS audio track and boosted the volume a touch. Looks and sounds pretty good I reckon.

Looks great Jonny!  ;) It's been a while since I last saw the film, but I remember liking it quite a lot even though I watched the same beat up fullscreen copy as you've got.

love the movie,
especially the scene where they're strolling through this strange park where the most brutal forms of executions are being enacted by plastic dolls. that is SO emblematic of the film and it's approach.
love the score, too!

When I watched it for the first time via the MCP DVD I was very impressed, even more so as I hadn't heard a lot about the film before. I'd rate it as one of my top 20 movies now. Someone from Moscow has an interesting tidbit of trivia to share on the film's political reception over at the imdb board.

As big fans of Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi we are very happy to announce that one of the next titles will be Paolo Cavara's controversial and wonderful L'OCCHIO SELVAGGIO (THE WILD EYE) from 1967, in which he settles the score with his former colleagues Jacopetti and Prosperi. We will release a very informative edition which will make both mondo lovers as well as haters very happy!

- L'occhio selvaggio - di Paolo Cavara, Tonino Guerra, Alberto Moravia, A. Pezzotta
