Title: Cry of a Prostitute / Quelli che contano (Andrea Bianchi, 1974)
Post by: Fray G on 31 Jul 2007 - 22:36
I could have sworn I saw a thread for this but after a look discovered there was'nt one.

Anyway, I got a new dvd player in the post this morning and can finally watch this for the first time, i'm gonna put it on tonight after my missus goes to bed. I've been looking forward to seeing this for ages and will doubtless post a few thoughts on it over the next couple of days.

Few things excite me more than knowing i'm gonna see a new Bouchet movie 8)

You can't beat this shot of Bouchet sucking off that banana, teasing Henry like crazy! She's going to get it!

It's a treat of a film Fray! If you dig Henry you'll love it, if you dig Barbara Bouchet... You'll love it! Which copy you got mate? The Italian DVD has no English options...  :)

Something I will remedy in the next few weeks  :D

Don't know yet Jonny, it's of the grey market variety obviously. I hope it's not cut. I avoided that US boot you can get on Amazon cos I read that was cut, fingers crossed it's not a boot of that.

It will be cut, the new Italian DVD is longer than any version I've come across before. If it has the title 'Cry of the Prostitute' and Joe Brenner in the titles it's the re-edited US version. Still a cracking film and you must watch it! The import version under the title 'The Ones Who Count' is also shorter than the Italian DVD so don't be put off watching it. It's a winner even in it's shortened version!

I am not going to be doing any shameless self-promotion on this (or any other) forum but since you mentioned it, we have upgraded to the Swedish print that Johny just mentioned. It is longer than the US cut!

I can't wait to see Johny's custom print! ::) Johny, you should use the English audio from my Swedish DVD-R and just subtitle the rest 4 minutes in English. Perhaps it would be less trouble.

So far it's all talky stuff that's missing, though there's a couple of shots of gore missing from the opening car crash sequence where the smuggler gets his head chopped off when he crashes his car at the beginning...

Well so far my version has parts that are in Italian language only, hopefully I'll be able to subtitle those parts. The rest will be in English, the Italian only bits are very minor so it's not that big a deal.

 There's a whole bunch of stuff at Trash-online i'm going to be getting over the next wee while, it's only since being here that i've known about vigilanteforce's cool list of stuff.


I watched Cry of a Prostitute last night(that was the title), man what a mean and distasteful movie this is. I loved it! Silva plays a fairly similar character to Lanzetta of Il Boss fame, only this time his motivation for playing warring mafia clans off each other is a "hatred for Americans who think they are Sicilians". He only takes time away from engineering the downfall of these families to abuse and debase the ex-whore wife of the American Don( a greaseball who gets his jollies from tales of his wife's past sexual encounters) played by Bouchet. Barbara really delivers on the sleaze in this, whether it's with pig's blood or milk or a banana she goes way further than any other movie i've seen her in before.
Henry is such a bad ass in this, he's equally proficient with a gun or his fists or his belt, and his delivery of the words "Motherfucker" and "Bitch" ar unsurpassed. I was only disappointed in him when he seemed to be going soft by helping the feud-divided lovers to escape but a deftly thrown knife soon put paid to that. There's a pleasing twist ending to the film which ties up the loose end of Silva's recurring flashbacks, overall I was well impressed and will need to seek out a longer and widescreen cut of this.

I found a great scene in the Italian DVD this afternoon whilst carrying on with the dubbing project, this scene isn't in any of the versions I have...

It's after the big shootout in the woodworking shed, the nutso woman who looks after her crippled kid picks up one of the dead bodies and proceeds to band saw his head down the middle!!!

I had it finished this morning but the amount of times I went back and tweaked it a little started to drive me crazy! Every time I watched it I saw a spelling mistake in the subtitles or the sound levels were off... I'm sure I've nailed it this time.

It's my favorite ever project so far, I'm well pleased with it, I hope you guys like it too.

I saw this for the first time tonight and boy, was I unprepared for it! This really is a gritty, mangy little flick, with Silva playing one of the baddest motherfuckers I think I’ve ever found myself rooting for. There’s so much to say about this flick, but I shan’t, out of fear of ruining it for anyone that’s not seen it. What I will say is that Barbara Bouchet has one of the best intros in the history of cinema and Silvais one bad ass motherfucker! Damn!  ::) ::) ::)

Henry's a real cunt in this isn't he? But it's for a good reason! He's letting everyone know who's boss!

Not sure if I'd have gone about it in the same way though!

And has unforgettable lines such as "I love killing people, it gives me great satisfaction", etc. Also, his demise in that is unbelievable but I am not going to spoil it!

I am always trying to promote that kind of films  ::) Specially THE HARD WAY because it is one of the greatest Italian jungle actioners of the 80s. It is well-made while KILLERS VS KILLERS is pretty bad. It is trashy fun with a few over the top moments but I would expect Fernando Di Leo's swansong to be a lot better than that. Just don't expect anything similar to his 70s classics. I wouldn't even call that "italian crime"- its more like cheesy 80s Italian action.

Is there alot missing from the old US tape of CRY we all used to have on dvd-r before this new dvd Jonny?

Here's what's missing from the US tape and the Finnish tape...

US is missing minor dialogue scenes, the entire opening credits sequence is missing, the car crash at the start of the film is missing the driver being decapitated with a shot of his head rolling on the floor,  a close up of the severed head being held to the camera at the start of the mortuary scene is also missing and an entire scene where a dead body has it's head band sawed down the middle is also absent.

Finnish tape has the correct opening title sequence but otherwise is missing the same as the US version plus the scene where Silva bashes the guys head against the rock and then assembles the two unconscious men and drives over them with a steamroller is missing. Plus the scene where Silva whips Bouchet with his belt is missing. Plus the scene where Silva bums Bouchet up against the pig carcass is missing.

The Finnish VHS is a pretty worthless release really considering what's missing!

No probs Fray,

You're in for a treat! Make sure you turn the English subs on before you start watching it! For some reason the subs don't work unless you tell them to via your remote.  :D

Hard to believe this film could get any more misanthropic, but it does.

That must have been one hot Sicilian summer when they filmed it,just about everyone is sweating including Bouchet in that big dress and check Silva's shirt!I definately noticed it more in this new remastered print,also those beautiful locations esp. that amazing little hilltop village with the narrow streets.
Title: Re: Cry of a Prostitute/Quelli che contano (Andrea Bianchi, 1974)
Post by: IL COMMISSARIO on 16 Aug 2007 - 04:43
Watched this tonight and what an amazingly distasteful, sleazy, squalid, offensive and repugnant little movie. A sordid version of YOJIMBO has Silva pitting crime families against each other for a personal vendetta. Nearly every scene brims with sleaze. Whether it be the abundant nudity or various sexual shenanigans such as a semi-strip tease rub down with milk or a rear entry poke with Bouchet's face inside a pigs carcass, or the numerous scenes of gore and gruesome violence such as vertical bisection by bandsaw, bulldozer decapitation or squashing by steamroller.

Directed with some semblance of professionalism by Andrea Bianchi, this film is miles away better directorially than his later BURIAL GROUND. Both films are good for what they are but here, Bianchi mixes salacious and savage scenes of violence with an assured polish that is totally absent from the other film. BURIAL GROUND is an excellent gore movie with a high "fun" factor but in CRY OF A PROSTITUTE, Bianchi really shows what he was capable of as a director. I should definitely check out his STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER soon. How is his horror film from '89 entitled MASSACRE? I almost bought that one at one time.

Anyway, Silva again is a human Terminator proving he was THE premiere (albeit underrated) movie badass. A title usually reserved for Charles Bronson and one or two others, Silva encapsulates the hardened "good-bad" guy and totally commands your attention in all his scenes with the bits without him leaving you wanting for his return. Bouchet is stunningly trampish as the wife of one of the crime bosses. I thought it was funny how the mafioso let us know his wife was an American considering the way foreigners view our women as loose and not at all relationship material. The first time I saw Bouchet was in the STAR TREK episode BY ANY OTHER NAME where she played an alien who, along with her commander were to get back to their homeworld thousands of light years away and save on food sources by turning the crew of the Enterprise into tiny box like cubes. Bouchet was a stunner on TREK as well presumably using her real voice.

Silva receives a spaghetti western style beatdown at the end only to show up shortly thereafter at the villains ranch for a similar styled showdown. The oft-used and popular machine guns in all these movies finally make an appearance late in the game as I wondered where they were considering everybody uses shotguns the bulk of the film. The ending is a nice capper to a great and gritty film.

The score is excellent. After hearing the first few bars during the opening I immediately fell in love with this score. Maybe a CD issue is in the works if there isn't already one out. Seldom can a film perfectly balance nasty and callous elements with a proficient flair for skillful direction but Bianchi does it here. I wonder if there are more like this one out there? Definitely high on the entertainment value scale and worth several more views unquestionably.

Thank you Jonny for the excellent work you have done. An admirable job here as on the other releases you have participated on. The average person who would partake in work like this would charge quite a bit or would not even put half as much heart into the project as you have into this and others like it. You should be doing this professionally. They could use you in Italy for these releases.

Italian crime wise i think the *uncut* version of Tulio Demicheli's RICCO comes pretty close though some of the dubbing in the English version lets it down for me,it has to be seen uncut though.Marc's excellent restoration is the version to go for.

Most prints of RICCO are missing a castration scene which was only intact in a Venezuelan tape. I have a composite that has the castration footage and the following scene where the guy is thrown in a bathtub filled with acid! FX aren't the most convincing you have seen but that stuff is really gruesome!

CO mentioned in another forum that Andrea Bianchi was now living in France and would probably not be available for interviews (at least that's the way I interpreted it). Does anyone know about any interviews with him on video or in books or magazines? Anyone have a picture of him? He seems to be one of the most elusive genre directors from Italy which is a shame considering what films he has worked on.

In case anyone has missed it this is now available on blu ray from Code Red. Code Red may not be everyone's favourite company but its good to have an official release. It available at Diabolik DVD - although its marked as Region A on the box it appears to be region free as it plays ok on my non chipped UK blu ray player. Still a bit pricey to import though!

Word is that the Code Red is missing some minor footage but is on the whole uncut in regards to the violence etc. I'll pick it up when I have the funds but I wouldn't be surprised if it comes out from another distributor at some point

Yes, I believe there's a German label that announced a release some time ago. I have the CR disc and it is quite good. The missing content is purportedly a "head shot" in the beginning and a line of dialogue before the barn scene at the end.

that artwork looks like it came from an amazon listing (which i can't yet find) ... would be my first filmart disc of such interest, and surely must be a real kick in the teeth for the CR mistake.

I took the artwork from FilmArt's post on their Facebook page. It was only announced this morning so I'd say it'll pop up on Amazon soon.

A bit cheaper than getting it on Amazon UK
