Need a break from the awards season movies and fall blockbusters vying for your eyeballs and your dollars? How about some classic Italian cinema instead? Hitting stores today is the "Sophia Loren Award Collection" on BluRay and the "Great Italian Directors Collection" on DVD, and they should definitely scratch your itch for foreign cinema. Both sets are excellent collections featuring some great classics. The Sophia Loren set boasts three Vittorio De Sica films in high-definition including "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow," "Sunflower" and "Marriage Italian Style" along with the omnibus "Boccaccio '70" with the box rounded out by a documentary on the life and legacy of director Vittorio De Sica.

As for the Italian directors collection, it features three films: Michelangelo Antonioni's "Story of a Love Affair" in a special 2-disc edition, Mario Monicelli's "Casanova '70," as well as the omnibus "Boccaccio '70." Again, another solid set, but before you head out to the video store you might be able to snag a copy for free, as courtesy of Kino Lorber, we have one copy of each set to give away to some lucky readers.

So, what will you have to do bag a copy of your own? Email us with your name, address and the answer to this question: Who accepted Sophia Loren's Oscar award on her behalf when she won Best Actress 1960 for "Two Women"?

Update: Contest is closed, winners will be contacted by email.

Sorry, this contest is open to U.S. residents only. And if you don't manage to win a copy, both boxsets are available today. Get full details for the Sophia Loren set here and the Great Italian directors box here.
