Brief Vacation

This superb neo-realist drama from filmmaker Vittorio De Sica gets a simple, but respectful, presentation for its release on DVD. Una Breve Vacanza (aka A Brief Vacation) has been given a letterboxed transfer to disc at the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.66:1 and the audio is mastered in Dolby Digital Mono. The audio is in Italian and the disc includes optional English language subtitles. As a bonus, the disc also includes excerpts from De Sica's Sette Volte Donna (aka Woman Times Seven).
