Does anyone have the version FilmFour showed on tv around 15 years ago, it was in Italian with English subs unlike all the English dubbed dvd releases! Would love to see this again. I did record it at the time on vhs since it was before most people had dvd recorders, but the tape has long since grown mold and died!

i didn't like mario adorf's character, his screentime annoyed me.
That dodgy accent he was dubbed with didn't help,can't figure out if it's Irish,Scottish or South African!

I couldn't understand some lines Adorf's character Jacques said.. really poor dubbing in excellent film!

agreed! the dubbing really mars his performance. I love the movie and Adorf's always fun to watch. In his interview on the AB-disc, Lado talks fondly of Adorf. A couple of years ago, Adorf was voted Germany's second most popular/best actor ever...

Didn't he eat cooked cats in Argento's debut?

Yup, great character as eccentric painter in directorial debut of Argento.

A good giallo, indeed. However, not the very one in my Top Ten list...

I think it really transcends the genre, it's much more complex. The setting in the ČSSR, the subject of political oppression makes it work on several different levels and lifts it way above most other Gialli for me. Most gialli seem to be content to just drool over a crassly exaggerated idea of life among the upper classes (Lenzi, Fulci, Bava, Martino, Ercoli, Miraglia, etc.).
There's something seriously haunting about it, not too many gialli have that quality. It has a lot in common with Avati's movies. Plus, it captures an image of Prague as it was in these bizarre and now long gone times.

I agree with you, mate. I think Lenzi was obsessed with that image in his Giallo or Thrillers, or whatever. He always depicted the same idea on and on... But his gialli were really fine. However, I think he was not that misogynous as his other counterparts in the genre. Thanks.

Fantastic news, although I'm sure there will be some that will moan that's it been out already on DVD, even though you'll be doing a Blu (and DVD).

Sure, there is always moaning, but then again, if you release something that nobody knows, most people won't buy it either... So...

Yes, it will have the Italian language track. We opted against the English one since it's pretty atrocious and the Italian one is of course Aldo Lado's preferred version -- which is a huge factor for us. The interesting thing is also how different the two versions are.
