1973 Dario Argento Film ‘The Five Days’ Headed to 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray March 28 From MVD and Severin
March 16, 2023
The 1973 Dario Argento-directed drama The Five Days will be released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc March 28 from MVD Entertainment Group and Severin Films.
Set during the 1848 five-day siege of Milan by the Austrian army, the film follows a cynical thief (pop star Adriano Celentano) who teams with a naïve young baker (Enzo Cerusico of The Dead Are Alive!) to survive the brutality and absurdity of the Italian Revolution. Marilù Tolo (The Scorpion With Two Tales), Glauco Onorato (Black Sabbath) and Salvatore Baccaro (The Beast in Heat) co-star in this dark action-comedy that reflected turbulent ’70s Italy and Argento’s own politics, from a story co-written by Enzo Ungari (The Last Emperor) and Luigi Cozzi (Paganini Horror) with a score by Giorgio Gaslini (Deep Red), now scanned in 4K from the original negative with more than four and a half hours of new special features.
