The Criterion Collection is proud to present the 1963 Academy Award® winner for Best Foreign-Language Film-one of the most written about, talked about, and imitated movies of all time-in a beautifully restored new digital transfer. Disc two features Fellini's rarely seen first film for television, Fellini: A Director's Notebook (1969). Produced by Peter Goldfarb, this imagined documentary of Fellini is a kaleidoscope of unfinished projects, all of which provide a fascinating and candid window into the director's unique and creative process.

Visually astonishing, erotically charged and emotionally jarring. 100 Days Before the Command is Hussein Erkenov's courageous and stinging indictment of Communism. Five young Red Army recruits struggle for survival against the merciless violence that surrounds them on a daily basis. Their only means of saving their dignity is by preserving the humanity and compassion they share for each other. Although not an overtly gay film, Erkanov's 100 Days Before the Command is remarkably direct in it's homoerotic imagery and subtexts. The film includes scenes where the soldiers share an intimacy and tenderness that is far removed from the brutality of most of their waking hours. (Amazingly all the roles are played by real life soldiers except one professional actor.) Banned by Soviet censors upon its initial release, Erkenov was forced to create his own sales company in order for the film to be screened at the 1995 Berlin Film Festival. 100 Days Before the Command is a unique entry into the world of post cold war film making from behind the former Iron Curtain.

The film starts from the South, landing of people who continue to reach Italy, with the eyes of whom is in search of a better destiny, a search between hope and tragedy, as is still documented in the news. A look at the Italy as it was in the past, showing the expectation and the premises of a future, a return to Beauty. The film is a trip to the peninsula made especially with the documents of the Istituto Luce, in whose archives appears an Italy from the early twentieth century, a long journey up to years close to ours. An articulated Italy, made up of different forms of Beauty, in a territory that has particular characteristics for each region, from Valle d'Aosta and Friuli Venezia Giulia, from Tuscany to Lazio, from Lombardy to Liguria, from Campania to Sicily and its islands; and so on. Twenty regions. The history of the territory, of the its landscape, life of its people and art have always been mixed. The spectacle of nature intertwines with the spectacle of Italian work and creativity, open to the world, loved and visited by the world. The film tells this Italy. Scenarios, art, work, landscapes, culture, shows, great people. [less]

A meek car rental employee and a mousy nursing student wind up an unlikely Bonnie and Clyde when fate drops a sack full of mob money at their feet. In this case, fate's messy plan involves a fender-bender with a gangster, a gas explosion at a Yakuza clubhouse, and a bizarre, slow-speed ambulance wreck. The surly mob boss manages to survive and escape each of these setbacks, albeit in a pair of arm casts and with a lovesick head nurse in tow. In the meantime sleepy hero Suzuki (Masanobu Ando) and frustrated heroine Shizuko (Hikari Ishida) blow town with a fortune in large bills in hand and a bumbling gang of junior criminals close behind. Shinobu Yaguchi directs this deadpan farce with a calm assurance and a lolling, lazy pace, creating humor from the sheer absurdity of events and the frustrations of his characters: bullying blowhard Yakuza thugs, young punks whose attitude and spunk don't quite overcome their lack of common sense and basic survival skills, and a pair of underdogs who allow events to sweep them out of their dull, predictable lives of humiliation and quiet desperation. Suzuki and Shizuko hardly speak a word to each other but they nonetheless fall into a sweetly awkward romance in this charmingly oddball comedy. --Sean Axmaker [less]

This unpretentious, endearing film is a modest triumph. Based on interviews with more than 500 people about the one memory they would choose to take with them to heaven, Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-Eda has modeled a unique blend of documentary and fiction that addresses the vagaries of memory but also what it means to make films.
After Life transpires in a sort of way station where the dead must select one memory to be re-created on film and taken on with them forever, relinquishing everything else. Over the span of a week, a dedicated group of caseworkers tease out self-deceptions as well as real epiphanies from 22 different lives. An old woman remembers reuniting with her husband on a crowded bridge after World War II; a man recollects the breeze felt on a tram ride the day before summer vacation; a successful man faces his own treachery. Remembering becomes a courageous act in the casual exposition of this lovely film.
