Product Description

(In Italian with English Subtitles) Murder, betrayal, office politics, temptation... it's all in a day's work for Detective Salvo Montalbano.The series is filmed in the ancient, sun-washed Sicilian city of Ragusa, and is based on the international best-selling mystery novels by Andrea Camilleri. Episode 23: Angelica's Smile - A series of robberies take place within the singular Vigata s elite. One of the victims is Angelica, a young bank manager: gorgeous, magnetic. Montalbano is bowled over; she suggests the heroine of Ariosto's Orlando Furiouso and not only for her name. Salvo falls to her feet like a schoolboy and tries his best in fighting a difficult battle to resist her. Meanwhile, the investigation continues until he realizes that the robberies are only a cover for something completely different, much more serious and tragic. Episode 24: Mirror Effect - Somebody's trying to confuse Detective Montalbano: a strange villa, a love story out of Shakespeare, some mysterious explosions and a couple of dead bodies complicate the question of what is and isn't real. A game of mirrors seems to culminate in a warning to Montalbano himself. One thing is certain; behind this strange case there is something really big and the detective has to find out what it is. As the case gets more difficult, something slips out of Montalbano's control. Language: Italian Subtitles: English Region: Region 1 (U.S. and Canada only) Aspect Ratio: 1.77:1 Number of discs: 2 Rated: NR (Not Rated) Studio: MHz Networks DVD Release Date: September 24, 2013 Run Time: 200 minutes

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait to receive these 4 episodes Sept. 14 2013
By jwalcott - Published on Amazon.com

I haven't received these subtitled episodes yet, but expect them by the end of September. But, I have watched the unsubtitled episodes on YouTube, and own all of the previously released episodes. This is the best detective series bar none, even those from Masterpiece Theatre and it is hard to top those. Luca Zingaretti has captured all of the quirky features of Montalbano (from the Andrea Camilleri novels), and his cohorts against crime are perfectly cast. The Italian/Sicilian is "rapido" so I like to check my understanding with the "sottotitoli" which are very well done and are translated beautifully.

I hope this is not the last of the Italian produced series, as Camilleri is still writing at 86 or so years!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Encore plus du Montalbano Sept. 15 2013
By Jane Stivarius - Published on Amazon.com
Episodes 23-25 have just run on French TV dubbed in French. Sicily is still gorgeous, Mimi has a silly mustache, A different but tall, thin and blonde lady plays Livia, the interchanges with Catarello border on slapstick but the series remains completely delightful, although, to me, it doesn't work in French. I've bought all the episodes so far and certainly will purchase these . . . .and be glad for the Italian with English subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply excellent Dec 13 2013

Really different. I don;t like detective stories but these are fun. I think we Americans don't pay attention to the rest of the world much. Watching Montalbano and his crew find the bad guy gives you insight into the European mind.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gone down hill... Oct. 4 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I have watched all of this series. These last two episodes are nearly the same story in both 23 and 24. Both revolve around women seducing Montalbano. It seems the author has given up producing a real story that intrigues and holds interest and is playing around with the attraction of the main Character. Livia is no where to be seen. The other characters are tiny parts. Both these episodes are very disappointing. Not worth buying frankly. No where near the level of the other stories.
