(aka "Theorem")

directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini

Italy 1968

"Teorema is Pasolini's meditation on lack of communication and understanding among bourgeoisie.  It's his "Discreet alienation of the bourgeoisie", if you will. The film is full of allegory images, that some find too pretentious. The eccentric Italian director's atmospheric tale of a prominent, dysfunctional Milanese family which engineers its own destruction when a spiritually minded stranger moves in on them."

Comments: ADDITION: Koch Lorber - Region 0 NTSC Dec 05'- The Image in the Koch Lorber DVD is very similar to the Mondo Home Entertainment, although the Koch Lorber is anamorphic. The picture in this DVD is fairly good, even though there is a lack of detail, and the picture is quite pale.

The Italian soundtrack is clean, although made from an optical source, there's in the end and beginning of every film reel some dirt (popping). The sound on my system was at a very low level.

For some strange reason the sound in the documentary Pasolini and Death: A Purely Intellectual Thriller is overdubbed in English. A very odd decision, when many parts of the documentary are basically an interview.

These seems to be the only English subtitled DVD of the film. The subtitles on the Koch Lorber DVD are yellow.

*****

The Films sans Frontieres version appears to have some problems. It is quite saturated and contrast boosted, where the Mondo version is muted. The color in the Mondo DVD seems more accurate and the Films sans Frontieres appears quite dark. In the black and white sequences the Mondo has a sepia tinge where the Films sans Frontieres is quite true. I don't know which is closer to the original. The Films sans Frontieres has only French subs with Italian dialogue. The Mondo has Italian and Eng audio options. Buy the Mondo !
