Title: Oltre la porta aka Beyond The Door - English audio needed
Post by: bronxwarriors1990 on 03 Nov 2008 - 12:29
Does anyone have a copy of Liliana Cavani's Oltre la porta aka Beyond The Door with good quality English audio? I have the letterboxed Italian language DVD but want to get English audio to make my own 'fan edit'.

My various American DVDs are public domain discs which are below par.

Any help would be great!

Can't really help out with this one but I just want to caution you about the Spanish DVD. I bought that disc because it was reported to have an English language track but then it turned out that it was non-English friendly. So beware!

Thanks for the tip - the fun of Euro-DVD collecting, huh?

When I was in Italy recently, I found a copy of Raro Video's YOUNG, VIOLENT AND DANGEROUS. I thought "great!" because I researched it on the internet and learned that the disc carries English options...but there was nothing to indicate this on the packaging. So I agonised over buying it until finally saying "screw it" and took the chance - turns out to have English audio, English subtitles for the Italian track, and the featurette on the disc also has subs!

If I do get around to doing this fan-dub Johan, I'll drop you a copy. I must admit though - I am tempted to simply add subtitles to the Italian version rather than replacing the audio. I have the Italian DVD of Cavani's FRANCESCO - The Mickey Rourke version, not the Lou Castel version which I would love to see - which contains the complete 150 minute Italian language edit with English subs. In this form it is a great film, but in the shortened English edit it seems comical. I like Rourke as an actor, but his own voice does not suit the film. Therefore I wonder if the Italian audio of BEYOND THE DOOR is closer to Cavani's intentions?
