On 15th May Olive films will release Bernardo Bertolucci’s classic drama 1900 (NOVECENTO) on Blu-ray as a three-disc collector’s edition.
Made in 1976, NOVECENTO follows the trials and tribulations of two friends from the turn of the last century. Robert De Niro and Gerard Depardieu star as the friends and lead an incredible cast that also includes Burt Lancaster, Donald Sutherland, Sterling Hayden, Dominique Sanda, Alida Valli and Stefania Sandrelli.
Bertolucci’s film was previously issued on DVD in the US by Paramount Pictures and here in the UK by 20th Century Fox. The Olive Films presentation marks the film’s high definition debut. NOVECENTO will be presented in its original two-part, five hour version. The only confirmed extra is the 2002 documentary Bernardo Bertolucci: Reflections on Cinema (which was also included on Arrow’s recent Blu-ray of THE CONFORMIST).
