descriptionDISC 1: YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW (1964) (Blu-ray) Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni team up for a trio of stories about sex in this Oscar-winning Italian comedy. In the first vignette, Loren plays a woman who avoids jail time by pumping out babies with a willing accomplice; in the second, the duo plays a pair of clandestine lovers who are forced to work out their problems in a car; and finally, Loren is a prostitute who quits her best john for a man of the cloth. DISC 2: VITTORIO D (2009) (DVD) A feature length documentary about the life and legacy of the great director, Vittorio De Sica, that offers fascinating interviews with Woody Allen, Clint Eastwood, Mike Leigh & many others. DISC 3: MARRIAGE ITALIAN STYLE (1964) (Blu-ray) Sophia Loren stars in this comedy about a successful businessman who kept a woman as his mistress for several years and now plans to marry another woman until his mistress pretends to be on her deathbed to induce him to marry her before she dies. DISC 4: SUNFLOWER (1970) (Blu-ray) Mere days after marrying Giovanna (Sophia Loren), Antonio (Marcello Mastroianni) is called to the Russian front to fight for the Italian forces. Years after Antonio is reported missing in action, Giovanna travels to Russia to learn what happened to him, only to discover he's alive. Their reunion is bittersweet, however, as Antonio has married another woman. DISC 5: BOCCACCIO '70: SPECIAL EDITION (1962) (Blu-ray) Sophia Loren stars in this four-part film that was meant to tap the international smash of Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita, which gave audiences some refreshingly "mature" subject matter. Four directors were hired to create segments ostensibly based on the tales of Boccaccio: Fellini himself (in the lull between La Dolce Vita and 8-1/2), Luchino Visconti, Vittorio De Sica, and Mario Monicelli.
