La Peste Italian videocassette front coverThis film provided quiet a mystery for a long time. It took a while to even confirm that Vangelis did the score for this 1992 film! His name was removed from the credits for reasons unknown. Only the Japanese video lists his name on the sleeve. The film has grown on me, and I especially like the interaction between the doctor and the priest...they should have done the entire movie based on that relationship. Anyways, it seems like every country that released this video used different edits, and the sound quality is not good on most copies. There is now a DVD from Hong Kong which provides the best audio, even though the music played over the end credits gets cut off prematurely, as for some unexplicable reason, the producers of this Hong Kong DVD just stop showing credits halfway through. I would hope that maybe a French company will release this title on DVD. [Thanks to Reinhard Teibl-Beckmann for the scan of the US promo videocassette].
