    Haven't seen any posts on this... apparently Home Vision Entertainment is releasing Allegro non tropo on 2/3/2004. DVD Planet has it listed on their site, & you can navigate through HVE 's site to see the cover, etc. HVE lists the following special features:



    The same day, HVE will be releasing Arthur Cohn Presents box set featuring American Dream, Behind the Sun, Black and White in Color, Sky Above Mud Below, A Brief Vacation ,The Garden of the Finzi-Continis, One Day in September, Two Bits, and Dangerous Moves AFAIK, all titles currently available. On the 24th, the Ivory films Maurice & Quartet, as well as Wisconsin Death Trip will be released.

    I've been waiting for this one! I question the aspect ratio of 1.33:1, as the film was produced in 1976. I suppose it is possible an Italian animated film made even that recently could be 1.33:1. Any experts? Would not Home Vision (Criterion) release any film OAR? (But, then, consider LORD OF THE FLIES, which is 1.66:1 theatrical, yet released to DVD at 1.33:1).

    Inside information from Home Vision also indicates that it will be the longer Italian version of the film. I'm not sure what's in the extra 10 minutes or so, however. Conceivably that could be an entire extra musical composition, or it could be more live action filler.

    It's been a long time since I've seen it theatrically, but 1.33 sounds right to me. I don't remember it being widescreen.

    Dick:

    A 'noted cartoon researcher' has informed me that most animation features of this time were created full-screen for future broadcast showings, but were cropped to 1.85:1 for theatrical release.

    Allegro non tropo appears to have followed this pattern.
