Baron Ferdinando Cefalù (Marcello Mastroianni) longs to marry his nubile young cousin Angela (Stefania Sandrelli), but one obstacle stands in his way: his fatuous and fawning wife, Rosalia (Daniela Rocca). His solution? Since divorce is illegal, he hatches a plan to lure his spouse into the arms of another and then murder her in a justifiable effort to save his honor. The Criterion Collection is proud to present director Pietro Germi’s hilarious and cutting satire of Sicilian male-chauvinist culture, winner of the 1962 Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

Limited-edition fine-art print by Jaime Hernandez, featuring his artwork for the Criterion Collection release of Pietro Germi’s Divorce Italian Style.
This first edition of one hundred prints was made with a digital fine-art printing method known as giclée, which produces an apparent resolution higher than that of a lithograph, and a range of color equal to that of a serigraph. It is printed on archival-quality acid-free paper with inks designed to last up to two hundred years without losing any detail or vibrancy. Each print is hand-signed by the artist.
