I have the OOP Japanese disc and it's pretty shit, in all honest. The soundtrack is almost inaudible.

I would suggest you just hang tight and wait for the Eureka release.

Its only inaudible in the opening scene of the english track, really. Italian track was fine for me.

Over at Criterionforum.org, Eureka's Peerpee wrote -

"We bit off more than we could chew (and it wasn't cooked properly). Sorry.

All hope is not lost, but we thought it best to take it off the schedule completely instead of continuing to muck about."

  So it sounds like they're on the hunt for better materials or something.  Maybe it'll pop up again down the track - it needs a good release.

All production issues have now been resolved for the following title, so has now be rescheduled for release – details below

PRESS RELEASE: FACCIA A FACCIA, a film by Sergio SOLLIMA is to be released on DVD ONLY on 20 June 2011

- Long-awaited spaghetti western - a beloved classic of aficionados - never before released to an English speaking market on DVD
- Starring Italian legends Tomas Milian (Traffic, JFK) and Gian Maria Volonte (Le Cercle Rouge, A Fistful of Dollars)
- Directed by spaghetti western maestro Sergio Sollima (The Big Gundown, Run Man Run, Revolver, Violent City)
- Music by the legendary Ennio Morricone (The Good The Bad and the Ugly, Cinema Paradiso)
- Featuring English and Italian soundtracks, both fully subtitled

SYNOPSIS:

One of the best films from Italian genre master Sergio Sollima (The Big Gundown), Faccia a Faccia (Face to Face ) is a gangbusting western saga and a gripping parable of the rise of fascism. Upstanding history professor Brad Fletcher (played by the incomparable Gian Maria Volonte) is forced into retirement by his poor health and moves west for the warmer climate. Almost as soon as he arrives, however, he is taken hostage by famed bandit Solomon Bennett (the great Tomas Milian) in an accidental confrontation, and by necessity is forced to take up with his cohorts. But the learned man's growing identification with the gang encourages him to stage a takeover from Bennett, and a new crueller system of leadership is put into place.

Produced by Sergio Leone's longtime partner Alberto Grimaldi, featuring stunning Techniscope cinematography, and a pounding score by il maestro Ennio Morricone, this long-requested Italian western makes its first appearance on Blu-ray anywhere in the world from a beautiful high-definition master, with both English and Italian soundtracks.

I would imagine the material were too shitty for an HD release.

I'll check the reviews before I buy this - I'm interested most about the sound because, as I've mentioned before, the English audio on the Japanese disc is terrible. I'm sure this release is going to be leaps and bounds above the one from Japan.

Really want this, but a bit wary that they might announce a BR disc 3 months down the line.

The press release still mentions it receiving the first bluray release anywhere in the world. Probably a mistake. Shame, but at least it's coming out on DVD.
