Favorites from Criterion… Roberto Rossellini’s War Trilogy

The boxed set of the trilogy contains three great films – Rome, Open City; Paisan; and Germany Year Zero. Considering the original sources, these are beautifully transferred. Also, among the strongest assortment of supplements in any one Criterion package. Very thorough. A powerful viewing experience.
