Im Todesjahr Giuseppe Verdis werden 1900 auf einem Gut in der Emilia Romana Olmo, Enkel des Pachtbauern, und Alfredo, Enkel des Großgrundbesitzers, geboren. Als Kinder Freunde, in der Jugend auf gemeinsame Sexabenteuer aus, werden sie in der Zeit des Faschismus und im Weltkrieg erbitterte politische Gegner. Am 25. April 1945 besetzen die Landarbeiter das Gut. Alfredo wird in einem Scheinprozess verurteilt. Olmo sagt sich vom Stalinismus los und öffnet die KPI für den historischen Kompromiss. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
Bernardo Bertoluccis monumentales Historien-Panorama über 50 Jahre feiert den Klassenkampf und ästhetisiert ihn mit den Mitteln Hollywoods. Der Erfolg von "Der letzte Tango in Paris" brachte Carte blanche von United Artists, Paramount und Fox. Den Jahreszeiten folgend, stemmt Bertolucci mit außergewöhnlichem Starensemble (u.a. Gérard Depardieu, Robert De Niro) unvergessliche Bilder der mythischen Landschaft der Po-Ebene. Monumental gefloppt, heute ein Kultfilm. Wegen Pornographie zeitweilig verboten. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
Die DVDs entsprechen 1:1 denen der Erst-VÖ.
Auch bei anderen Ausgaben der Cinema-Premium-Reihe, die ehemalige MGM-Titel enthielten, waren die DVDs inhaltlich identisch zu bereits erschienenen Fassungen.
Hier hat man sich jedoch nicht einmal die Mühe gemacht, die Scheiben neu zu labeln.
Dementsprechend stimmen auch die Angaben auf der Verpackung nicht:
Beim Ton sind nur Deutsch und Englisch angegeben.
"Exklusive Ausstattung - Aufwändiges Booklet" trifft beides nicht zu.
Angegebene Extras sind nicht auf den DVDs vorhanden:
"1900: Die Geschichte, die Besetzung"
"1900: Die Erschaffung eines Epos".
Vermutlich sind damit die wenigen Angaben auf dem beiligenden bescheidenen Faltblatt gemeint.
Laut Fox handelt es sich dabei um ein Versehen. Wann die korrekte Version ausgeliefert wird, steht zur Zeit noch nicht fest und es wird wohl eine Umtauschaktion geben.
Wer schon jetzt Kontakt aufnehmen möchte, sollte eine entsprechende Mail an firstname.lastname@example.org senden.
- auf RC2-Playern lief nur die 1.DVD, die 2.Scheibe hatte nur RC4!
- auf der 2.DVD ist nur die englische Fassung vorhanden/auswählbar!
Fazit: Den einen Trostpunkt gibt's für den Film an sich, das Produkt (d.h. die Import-DVD-Version) ist wertlos.
Also Vorsicht bei diesem Anbieter.

After establishing the unique friendship between Olmo and Alfredo, the movie jumps to their lives as adults. Essentially from there the movie follows these two through their entire lives and in the process also follows the rise and fall of Fascism in Italy and the peasants' support of Communism. While the drama is directly showing the lives and families of the two main individuals, the larger story is told by how these people are affected by the surrounding social and political events. By the time the movie works its way back to Liberation Day what seemed to be chaos in the opening scene now makes since.
Probably the main failing of the movie is that it is so strongly from a pro Communism viewpoint that at times it seems more propaganda than drama. It goes out of its way to vilify the Fascists, making sure they are seen as ruthless, lying, murdering perverts. (One example: A young boy is sexually abused by a Fascist man and woman, then brutally murdered. The murder, a person of authority, then blames a communist peasant.)
There are a number of nude scenes in the movie, including two of boys around the age of twelve. The first is Olmo who is seen fully nude both from the front and from the rear, the other a minor character years later whose bare bottom is seen briefly. As adults both Olmo and Alfredo are seen fully and clearly nude and there is also full and clear female nudity in the movie. There are also a couple of very graphic sex scenes in the movie, especially one of both Olmo and Alfredo getting hand jobs by a nude woman. The sexual abuse of a boy which I mentioned earlier is not actually shown. There are also graphic scenes of ducks dying in a hunting scene and later pigs are seen being killed and slaughtered.
The acting and overall production of the film is good but the quality of the video on he Blu-ray is a little short of what you would expect from a Blu-ray, it is more what you would expect for a good quality DVD. The movie itself is on two discs, the third disc in the Blu-ray set is a 51 minute documentary about Bernando Bertolucci's work. It is a grouping together of several interviews made with him over the years and mixed with clips and behind the scene footage of his movies. It is a somewhat interesting documentary, I most enjoyed hearing his comments on his movies which I have seen. I have not seen many of his movies and was somewhat lost when he was discussing the ones I have not seen.
The second really gets into the story and we see Gerard Depardieu when he was almost handsome and a Robert De Niro so
young you almost don't recognize him. This was back before he became "Robert De Niro" and still acted without chewing the scenery.
It really is a generational story as well as a class and war story. Wonderful cinematography.
I have found whenever possible a Criterion Collection is well worth the few dollars extra.
two viewings of this somewhat bloated 5 hour plus film left me feeling
the same way; The film is over-simplistic in its characters and
politics, badly dubbed (with actors from all over speaking their own
language, so whatever soundtrack you pick there are important
characters who sound like something out of 'What's Up Tiger Lily'), and
even the English spoken by DeNiro seems post- recorded, making for an
oddly stiff sounding performance.
Yet for all these complaints it is somehow a near-great film. There are
so many moments; images, incidents that are indelible, and in the end
there's such a real emotional punch to this overview of the history of
Italy from 1900 to 1945 as seem through the lives of a few people in a
small town that it overcomes many of the flaws.
I couldn't defend the film from anyone who wanted to tear it down -
e.g. the simple-minded jingoistic endless competition between fascism
and communism as if those were the only two options in the world, with
both sides reduced to cartoon like figures of evil and good.
But it's strengths are strong enough that I'd urge people to judge for
themselves. You may find, like me, that all the flaws don't matter to
you when a film has so many unforgettable moments.
It is important to note that 1900 is also not for everyone; it is a very much an adult film. The sex scenes, in particular the menage-a-trois with DeNiro, Depardieu and the prostitute, are graphic but not excessive. There are quite a few scenes of violence that will cause the viewer to turn-away, so be prepared.
Much to my surprise, the film has been given the Blu-Ray treatment and the results are...not what a fan would want, but probably the best one can expect. The film's 5 1/2 running time is evenly spread out over 2 discs with a final DVD disc offering the only supplemental feature. As for the transfer, it is a mix. The opening credits are letterboxed (??) while the remaining film is presented in 1.85 (it was originally shot in 1:66). The image waffles from natural colors to overly saturated images that often made me think I needed to recalibrate my monitor or that is was on the wrong setting. The sound--which was never that memorable--is presented in Dolby Stereo and sounds as good as it did in the theaters.
Given that 1900 was never a huge audience favorite, I hadn't expected to see it on Blu-Ray so soon. While I would have hoped for a transfer that was more accurate to its original composition and not so muddy and overly saturated, it will have to suffice given its less then mediocre success.
I've done a little digging and it seems that this transfer is the same one as the DVD. Meaning--it is less than ideal. Robert Harris (who restored Lawrence of Arabia) recently posted a review and complained about the film's image constantly moving. Paying more attention to this Blu-Ray transfer, I also noticed this happening A LOT. The frame keeps shifting for some unknown reason and there is often a warping effect at times. Looking at the DVD that was released several years ago, those oddities also appeared but are less pronounced given its lower resolution. Frustrating beyond belief and it now makes it difficult to watch the film. Moreover, contrast is terrible as many whites are completely blown out losing all subtlety.
To sum up: Get the Blu-Ray if you are a true fan as it probably won't ever get any better. But it is disheartening to see such a lousy release of a film that really deserves better.
