Notes and Editorial Reviews

The narrative of the Italian Girl in Algiers is so perfectly structured as to unfold, you might say, with all the purity of a theorem. Wearied by the docility of a too-obedient wife, Bey Mustafa would like to spice up his harem with someone more titillating and even - although he does not put in this way - dominant. He finds her in the form of Isabella, a beautiful Italian cast up on the Algerian coast after the wreck of the ship in which she was searching for her recently vanished lover.

Sound Format: PCM Stereo, Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1
Subtitles: French, English, German, Spanish
