Plot Sypnosis:

In the mid-sixties, famed producer Dino De Laurentiis brought together the talents of five celebrated Italian directors for an anthology film. Their brief was simple: to direct an episode in which Silvana Mangano (Bitter Rice, Ludwig) plays a witch. Luchino Visconti (Ossessione, Death in Venice) and screenwriter Cesare Zavattini (Bicycle Thieves) open the film with The Witch Burned Alive, about a famous actress and a drunken evening that leads to unpleasant revelations. Civic Sense is a lightly comic interlude from Mauro Bolognini (The Lady of the Camelias) with a dark conclusion, and The Earth as Seen from the Moon sees Italian comedy legend Totò team up with Pier Paolo Pasolini (Theorem) for the first time for a tale of matrimony and a red-headed father and son. Franco Rosso (The Woman in the Painting) concocts a story of revenge in The Sicilian's Wife, while Vittorio De Sica (Shoeshine) casts Clint Eastwood as Mangano's estranged husband in An Evening Like the Others, concluding The Witches with a stunning homage to Italian comic books. Bonus features include: Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys, English-language version of Vittorio De Sicas episode, An Evening Like the Others, starring Clint Eastwood, Interview with actor Ninetto Davoli, recorded exclusively for this release, Original Italian mono audio (uncompressed LPCM), Brand-new audio commentary by film critic and novelist Tim Lucas, High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation, Brand new 2K restoration from original film elements produced by Arrow Films exclusively for this release, FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Illustrated collectors booklet featuring new writing on the film by Pasquale Iannone and Kat Ellinger
