Can any Maniac comment on the new Italian anamorphic release of The Church? Is it preferable to the AB release?
I know Absurd-online are advertising it but I can't access any info on their site about it.

Don't know anything, about this release, but I can tell you that the AB release is really nice. Check out the review on the site for more info.

I have both versions of this DVD - I picked on up in Italy forgetting I had ordered on previously through the net. Plus I had the oppurtunity to meet up with Michele Soavi - so I had to buy it really.
Anyway - the print quality is maybe slightly inferior on the Italian print - but not hugely different imho.
Plus with the Italian version you get the film in Italian - sadly no subtitles - but I like it more in Italian than the weakly dubbed English version. Both versions have their strengths - if you aren't bothered with hearing it in Italian - I say pick up the AB print...

Currently he is working on a project - I had the pleasure of meeting him whilst he was working on his new project at De Paolis studios in rome - in the summer. Didn't get to speak to him much - but from what I saw it is a throw-back to the thrillers we know and love his work for.
Apparantly the project which was intended for TV has been deemed too violent - so it might end up at cinemas. I will find out more as I plan on calling Michele when I go to rome in the next few weeks.
Anyway let's hope it is better than Francesco - which I saw on RAI whilst out there -which was really rather bad - barring an appearance by Erika Blanc.

That's cool you get to meet and talk with him man! Wasn't he not doing films for a while because his kid was sick? Or something like that?
If that's the case, how is he/she (the kid) doing now? Is Soavi back making films fairly steadily again?
