Sophia Loren Two Women and A Special Day

To celebrate the release of two award-winning masterpieces starring screen siren Sophia Loren – Two Women, directed by Vittoria De Sica and A Special Day from revered director Ettore Scola, we have two DVD sets to giveaway. Both films are available released on DVD and Blu-ray on 24th and 31st October 2016 from brand new label CultFilms.

Two Women aka La Ciociara won Sophia Loren a Best Actress Oscar, the first and only actor or actress to win for a foreign-language film performance.Adapted from the eponymous novel by Alberto Moravia, Two Women tells the story of a beautiful young widow Cesira (Loren) and her twelve-year-old daughter as they struggle to survive in war ravaged Italy. In the hope that Cesira can protect her daughter from the horrors of war they leave Rome to avoid the bombings and seek refuge in rural Italy, but there’s no escaping the devastating tragedy of war.
A Special Day aka Una Giornata Particolare, is a rarely seen masterpiece starring one of cinema’s legendary couples Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni (La Dolce Vita). Set in Rome on the day of Hitler's momentous 1938 state visit to Mussolini, while the rest of the residents are at the parade, housewife Antonietta (Loren) reluctantly stays at home to do chores, only to find her mysterious gay neighbour Gabriele (Mastroianni) has also chosen to abstain from the political propaganda rally. Or was he told to stay away? Their chance meeting will change their perceptions of love, politics and life forever.
