Default Tinto Brass's The Key Arrow Dual Format

Tinto Brass's The Key Arrow Dual Format

Tinto Brassís first major film since the notorious Caligula stars Frank Finlay as a man who is terrified of losing his voluptuous wife Teresa (Stefania Sandrelli) because he is unable to satisfy her sexually. He arranges for her to have an affair, by taking erotic photographs of her and asking her would-be lover to develop them. Meanwhile, he keeps abreast of her burgeoning relationship by reading her diary, in the full knowledge that she in turn is reading his...

One of Brassís most critically acclaimed films, The Key is also one of his most elegant, with wintry Venetian locations, a beautiful Ennio Morricone score and a strong sense of period - itís set in 1940, just before Mussoliniís Italy entered World War II.

However, it also unmistakably shows the path that Brass would eventually follow, with startlingly graphic sex scenes for a supposedly Ďrespectableí film cast with serious actors.

Special Features:
- High Definition Blu-ray and Standard Definition DVD Presentation of the film in widescreen for the first time!
- Optional English and Italian audio
- Newly translated English subtitles for the Italian audio
- Original Trailer
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly illustrated artwork by The Red Dress
- Collectorís booklet featuring new writing on the film by Tinto Brass scholar Alexander Tuschinski, illustrated with rare production stills

Region B/2

Released 20/05/2013

If I'm curt with you it's because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need you guys to act fast if you wanna get out of this. So, pretty please... with sugar on top. Clean the ****ing car!

One of Brass's finest films.

The art is a nice idea but doesn't seem to have been done very well. Meh. Could be worse.

One Brass' better films - Stafania Sandrelli is incredibly sexy in it.

Not sure about that artwork though, it looks nothing like her!
