Italian Special Edition, numero due
« on: Jun 29, 2010, 10:55 AM »
I didn't found any discussion on this one, so I start a new topic.

And yes, it's me again with my usual stuff.. (^)

Brokeback Mountain has been released in Italy in three different DVD editions: regular 1-disc edition, 2-disc Collector's Edition and 2-disc Special Edition with a book.

Here are pictures of the book edition.

Front cover:

Back cover:


If you want to zoom in, save the pictures on your computer or open them in a new browser window.

The book 'Diversi Amori' is a passage (chapter 'Viaggio' {Travel(ling)} from Pier Vittorio Tondelli's Altri Libertini {Other Libertini} with a foreword from Dario Zonta about Ang Lee directing a western. The book is only sold with the DVDs.

Otherwise the content of the DVDs is the same as on other Special Editions + some bookreading in Italian (Piergiorgio Paterlini's Ragazzi che amano ragazzi).

And...here's a real gem: almost 20 minutes worth of 'dietro la macchina da presa' {behind the camera}, i.e. a real 'making-of': short snippets from here and there when they were filming, without any narration,
e.g.:

I haven't seen this before. Have you?

I nostri amici italiani, please, do provide some background information & proper translations, per piacere.  (:* (t) (:*

Hi rdx :h}
Thanks for putting this into a new topic.
As for the translations, here they are those referring to the titles you posted.
Diversi Amori:Different loves
Ragazzi che amano ragazzi: Guys who love guys.

As for the background, behind the camera, I cannot help
cause I ignored it. However I should say it's an interesting thing.
Thanks, rdx, for letting us know indeed O0
As I see it seems this edition underlines above all the particular
bond, which can be a sexual one too,emerging between guys.
I guess it's more concentrated into these aspects of the human sexuality than
about the full university of the message coming from the film. It's only my opinion
but I could commit a mistake not knowing this DVD edition in its fullness.

Yup, I've updated the pictures for real scans.

Below the disks there is passage from Pier Paolo Pasolini's (?) Che cosa sono le nuvole? {What are (the) clouds?}
Any logical explanation for this?  :s)

I think it's the passion toward God's things which stay as the most
important things even if one's own life is ruined. So it happened to
two puppets, destroyed and thrown down to the litters, who look at
the sky and, amazed, the clouds....they ask themselves about their
nature but, without understand it, they stay admired by their beauty.
For those who understand Italian language I post here a wikipedia link to this
Pasolini's comedy.
http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Che_cosa_sono_le_nuvole%3F

This reminds me of Foscoli's Sepolcri:Perché gli occhi dell'uom cercan morendo
il sole e tutti l'ultimo sospiro mandano i petti alla fuggente luce.

Grazie, Mars, grazie!

This parallel is quite interesting.  "s;" :cb:

Quoting myself... :i

Just for your information..

There are some 30 films in this "Le Nuvole" series (with a book), both international and Italian titles, e.g:

Nothing special here but the Italian 1-disc DVD has this familiar picture with a slightly new 'angle' on the inner cover & the Italian scene selection. There's certain symmetry in the titles.

I wonder if the "behind the scenes filming" clips are a prelude to providing us with the deleted scenes too!  One can always wish...  :s)

Yes, DB, I wish they were, but I doubt it: the clips were already included in the Taiwanese denim DVD (2006) package and they can also be found on the Mexican DVD (2006). The Italian DVD in question dates back from 2007.

Nothing new here either.

Pieces of useless information...
The back cover says: "Per motivi contrattuali la versione in lingua originale è visibile solo con i sottotitoli." Allora, the English soundtrack is only available with Italian subtitles, because of contractual reasons. I've found the same thing on some Italian&French DVDs/BDs, not elsewhere. Such restrictions are overrideable by software.

Scusi, c'è il Blu-ray.

OK, boring details to follow... :P

The Italian Blu-ray has a slightly wider framing, i.e. a little bit more is shown:
