Caution, risk of confusion! While it’s occasionally the case that there are multiple films with the same title, it’s a rarity for two cinematic milestones to share the same title. But that is exactly the case with the title «The Untouchables»: On the one hand it is the German title of the award-winning thriller drama about the journalists who uncovered the Watergate scandal. But it’s also the local title of a brilliant gangster movie starring Sean Connery .
In order to avoid this risk of confusion, the original title is increasingly being used for the second film in this country — including the long-awaited 4K Blu-ray debut of the film: On June 9, 2022, Brian De Palma ‘s masterful gangster thriller «The Untouchables» alias will be released «The Untouchables» in two editions in 4K. Both releases are limited and in high demand — some online shops have already sold them out. So fans should not hesitate too long if they want to avoid high third-hand prices.

«The Untouchables»: Robust types, stylish cinema
Chicago during Prohibition: People don’t want alcohol to be banned — and thus boost the smuggling of the prohibited goods massively. So much so that the alcohol mafia literally has the city in their hands. The most powerful gangster of all is Al Capone ( Robert De Niro ), who is equal parts kneeled and feared.
But Eliot Ness ( Kevin Costner ), a busy freshman in the treasury, is determined to stop Capone. He is supported by the roughnecked street cop Jim Malone (Sean Connery), the accountant Oscar Wallace ( Charles Martin Smith ) and the tough George Stone ( Andy Garcia ).
