    After reading about the film in a catalog, I looked to see if it was on DVD...

    It's not!

    Well, the VHS is from Home Vision, so why not a Criterion Collection version?

    I think Criterion DID express an interest in doing an animation title, so how about this one?

    Anyone else interested in a DVD of Allegro Non Troppo?

    Patrick,
    I'm not familiar with this title, but I just wanted to pop in to make a suggestion.
    Criterion welcomes title suggestions, which can be emailed via their website at www.criterionco.com. In addition to posting here, it might be a good idea to send in an email. Jon Mulvany at Criterion is very good about responding to email.
    Cheers!

    This is a terrific "parody" of Disney's FANTASIA, but many of the chapters are in and of themselves very fine pieces of animation married to classical music. I own the Home Vision video release and long for a DVD, with bridging sequences in original Italian language with English subtitles.

    I would buy this film no matter who releases it. Criterion would cinch the deal though. I've been wanting to see this film for years.

    This would be great for Criterion. I agree with John, the film would be worth owning on any label that can do it justice. The march of life's evolution to the Bolero was a great sequence in and of itself, and not just as a Fantasia parody. Highly recommended.
    Here is the IMDB plot summary if you are unfamiliar with the film.
