The first film, Riso Amaro, is translated as BITTER RICE and you can buy
that from Facets (item S16185) for $19.95

The second film The Conformist had been available on video and laserdisc
in an english dubbed version but is now out of print. For some reason
(legal perhaps) Paramount has been holding up reissuing that title.
Perhaps someone from ILL will loan it to you or you can rent it on 16mm
from Swank Motion Pictures (800-876-5577)

The third film is translated as STOLEN CHILDREN. It too can be rented on
16mm from Swank. It has not been issued on video in the U.S., however I
bought a PAL copy from England (which does have subtitles) although you
need a multi-standard player to watch it. Assuming you do, it can be
purchased in PAL from:

It costs around 13 pounds plus shipping and you need a credit card.

Hope this helps.
